The Zachys Early Fall Auction, Sept. 17-18 in NYC, will feature 1,800-plus lots from an international connoisseur.
The collector lived in Germany and Thailand, and bought rare items from both countries. He then air-shipped his wines to New York under temperature-controlled conditions, according to Invaluable.com, an online marketplace co-hosting the event.
In New York, the wines were stored in a custom-built temperature-controlled home cellar.
Noteworthy lots include:
