Featuring the private collection of Bob Hudson, the sale includes notable bottles of Bordeaux and California cabernet, along with a selection of Burgundy from Rouget, Clos de Tart, Groffier and others. Also offering a spotlight on Italy, the auction features Super Tuscans of Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Masseto, as well as Barolo and Barbaresco from Giacosa, Conterno and Voerzio.

“The holidays are the perfect time to enjoy an exceptional bottle of wine with friends and family, and we are excited to give our online bidders the opportunity to own the notable, and very drinkable, offerings in Zachys’ Holiday Auction this year,” said Rob Weisberg, Invaluable CEO. “From a significant selection of Burgundy and Bordeaux to go with a special holiday dinner, to fine Champagne to ring in the New Year, Zachys truly offers something for everyone in this distinguished sale.”
A highlight of the auction from the collection of Bob Hudson is a 15L of Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2000 (estimated at $24,000 - $36,000), which was purchased at the 2008 South Beach Wine and Food Festival Auction, at which Baroness de Rothschild was the donor.
