The Wine Specatator’s August 31, 2011 issue has a great article about how to buy wine at auction, including nine strategies to help newbies participate with success.
Here’s a (self serving!) excerpt from the article:
“Auction houses offer catalogs of their upcoming sales. Read the catalog’s condition reports carefully. Wines kept in professional or home temperature-and-humidity-controlled storage are preferable to collections housed in natural or ‘passive’ cellars, because the latter are often subject to temperature fluctuations, whihc can affect wines adversely.”
Only Le Cache wine cabinets feature CellarPro cooling units with adjustable humidity control. For more information, visitwww.lecachewinecabinets.com and www.cellarprocoolingsystems.com. At www.iwawine.com, we carry the complete lines of products from Le Cache and CellarPro, as well as other high-end products from well-known manufacturers of wine cellar racks, wine storage products and wine accessories.
