Hong Kong – To celebrate Christie’s 250th anniversary globally and 30th anniversary in Asia, a visionary sale will be held for the first time, honoring a select group of some of the world’s most celebrated wine producers. As the first ever auction house to introduce such a sale, Christie’s introduces the “Direct from Great Estates Sale” on 27 May and will feature wines from the cellars of 84 of the world’s most illustrious producers with several unique lots being released exclusively by fantastic estates such as Domaine de laRomanée-Conti, Château Latour, Château Margaux and Château Lafite Rothschild among many others.

This sale held in collaboration between Christie’s and the Great Estates will offer buyers rare vinous treasures and many will also offer privileged opportunities, such as private tastings cellar tours with the estate’s family members or winemakers, gourmet lunches and dinners paired with the Estates’ fine wines, and overnight stays at the Estate.
