Rare Barossa wine to go under the hammer
7 December, 2018
The opportunity for avid wine collectors and enthusiasts to expand their cellar with Barossa’s most exclusive and rare wines will occur again in April 2019.
As is tradition, fine wine lovers from Australia and abroad will be able to bid on lots directly curated from the winemakers’ private reserves.
The wine auction has been presented by the Barossan wine community every two years since 1965. Now held in partnership with Langton’s, buyers will be able to purchase both in person and online. It is anticipated that around 150 lots will be available online, with an additional 30 lots exclusively offered at the live auction on Friday, 26 April, 2019.
Rare verticals and large formats, many of them included in the recently released Langton’s Classification VII, in addition to unique wine and experience packages will likely fetch anywhere from $40 to $60,000. The Langton’s auctioneering team will lead the live auction, creating an electric atmosphere as bidders vie for an array of coveted lots. To add to the festivities, a three-course lunch, featuring local produce, will be served by the team at Lambert Estate, the venue for this year’s event.
Guests attending the live auction travel anywhere from 900m to 9,000kms after purchasing one of the 350 tickets, available at $165 per person. Net proceeds are directed back into the community supporting the delivery of the Barossa Vintage Festival and local and national charities.
