Michael Ganne, Executive Director of Baghera/wines points out: “The Portrait(s) sale took place in a warm and lively atmosphere, with an assembly of collectors travelling to Geneva from various Swiss cantons and others from Europe and Asia. Some lots aroused a great deal of enthusiasm, attesting to the long-held appreciation of great Burgundy wines. The sale was also part of the second edition of our “Wine&music” event, with Saturday evening bringing together 300 wine-loving guests, who enjoyed the tasting of a horizontal of twelve interpretations of Clos de Vougeot 2015, accompanied by a private concert by Thomas Dutronc, adding a festive and convivial touch to the weekend.”
With this sale Baghera/wines closed the year with a turnover of CHF 10.5 million (9.6 million euros) and 93% of lots sold, confirming the Geneva auction house’s position as the Swiss and European leader in fine wine auctions.
2020 promises to be an auspicious year for our auction house. The next room auction, on Sunday, March 1st at the Beau-Rivage Hotel, will present a particularly rare and prestigious collection of French wines, entrusted to Baghera/wines by an eminent collector of art and wines who wishes to remain anonymous.
The date is set for a sale that will be exceptional in every respect. It will offer from the first quarter of the year, the most coveted bottles of the vinosphere, embodiments of the passion of this exceptional collector for the great wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy.
