HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. – Since its conception in 2010, the rare and fine wine department at Leland Little Auctions has expanded to offer the largest wine auctions in the Southeastern United States. Their largest and most impressive sale to date will be conducted on Saturday, March 9. LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding.
Leland Little Auctions will be offering nearly 500 lots of unique and highly collectible wines, including 23 lots of Petrus, 36 lots of Chateau Latour and 26 lots of Domaine de la Romanee Conti. Just one bottle of Petrus can sell for $2,000 or more. Major wine collections consigned for this auction have traveled from as far away as New York.
Mark Solomon, the fine wine director of the sale, predicts the upcoming auction will attract many local wine collectors as well as engage notable national and international bidders through live online bidding. He remarked, “Our goal is to change the way wine auctions are performed … to make them more accessible, interactive and transparent for the benefit of both consignors and collectors.”
Local collector and wine enthusiast Kirsten Venema said, “I am thrilled that I no longer have to travel to New York to attend world-class wine auctions. Now we have one in our own backyard … I raise my glass to them.”
