HONG KONG.- Sotheby’s Hong Kong presents The Summit, A Complete Cellar, the Company’s second highest estimated single-owner wine sale in Asia, from 5 – 6 July 2020. Estimated in excess of HK$78 million / US$10 million, this extraordinary collection offers more than 1,500 lots of wines which originate from the cellar of an American wine collector.

Conner Kriegel, Head of Auction Sales, Sotheby’s Wine, New York states: “We are privileged to present this collection which was assembled over three decades by a true connoisseur who learned about and discovered wine through his passion for gastronomy. He travelled extensively through Europe, dining and drinking at the best restaurants and then dutifully finding and buying the world’s greatest wines for his own enjoyment. The personal relationships with many wine producers also granted him privileged access to some of the rarest and most exclusive wines in the world.”

Adam Bilbey, Head of Sotheby’s Wine, Asia, states: “Following our record-setting year in 2019, we are thrilled to open our 2020 wine season in Hong Kong with a very important single-owner collection. Featuring the very finest wines from the world’s greatest wine producers, the quality and depth of this collection is beyond imagination. Any wine lover will be stunned to see such quantities of large-format DRC and, as notable, the much sought-after and increasingly rare Cuvée Cathelin from J-L Chave. As the name suggests, this truly is the Summit for wine collectors worldwide!”
