This year's London Wine Fair will host two fine wine and spirits auctions as part of its 40th anniversary celebrations and are open for consignments.
The show's organisers have teamed up with Chiswick auctioneers to host two sales on Wednesday 20, May with proceeds from one going to support drinks charity The Benevolent.
The first sale, The London Wine Fair 40th Anniversary Auction, will feature 30 lots which are being sold to benefit The Benevolent. The auction will take place in the Grand Hall from 14:00 to 14:45 (approximately).
Guest auctioneers will include Oz Clarke, Miles Beale and Roger Jones, wielding the gavel over lots such as Dom Pérignon Oenothèque 1993 and Whyte & Mackay’s 500 Years of Scotch Whisky Anniversary Blend.
The trade at large is being encouraged to consign further lots to the sale, from bottles to cases or even more.
Chiswick Auctions will also host a Fine Wine & Spirits sale from 10:30 to 12:30 on the same day in the Industry Briefing room.
The sale features 150 lots including an imperial Château Lafite-Rothschild 1969.
The London Wine Fair is taking place from 18-20 May at Olympia.
