Wine and Summer



Greetings from the ever bubbly (pun intended) Fine Wine Department at Waddington's!

Last summer we extolled the gentle virtues of summer sippers, fruity Beaujolais, sumptuous Chenin Blanc and Viognier, steely crisp Chablis and, of course, Champagne and Cremants. This summer we have fallen, full on, for the “Rosé All Day” trend sweeping the world. Some of the producers we have been fawning over this season are only available through agents by the case, like the 2017 Domaine de Triennes Rosé (Halpern Enterprises) and the Château Pesquié 2017 ‘Les Terrasses’ (The Vine Agency). We’ve also been enjoying 2017 Côtes des Roses Rosé by Gérard Bertrand and are constantly on the lookout for some great Bandol wines from Provence.

However as much as we may enjoy our time drinking rosé, our continuous task is assembling the wines destined for our fall auctions in September and November. After an incredible spring season, we feel this fall will also be very special as numerous great collections are already slated for auction.

We are delighted to inform our Fine Spirits clients that we have secured a world class collection of rare scotch, The Tom Willcock Collection of Fine and Rare Whisky, that will be sold in two parts in September and November. The collection contains over 500 bottles from many of the great distillers past and present. To celebrate the collection please look forward to a whisky tasting in our gallery in September. Details will be announced soon.

If you are considering consigning for our fall auctions, please keep in mind the following dates:

  • Deadline for inclusion in the September auction is July 20.
  • Deadline for inclusion in the November auction is September 21.

We hope your summer is full of sunshine, friends, family and, of course, fine wine.

Stephen, Joann and Devin
