Every wine tells its unique story and a lifetime isn’t enough to fully grasp the mystery behind it. Wine is so much more than a beverage… wine is passion, emotions and surprises. Thus, along the years, an empassioned wine drinker effortlessly delves deeper into wine knowledge and is naturally encouraged to start collecting. This is when wine passion turns to wine collection… And what is so mind-blowing about collecting wine ? Uncovering hidden treasures in a thrilling hunt ? Possessing an unique bottle from a legendary wine-maker ? Increasing the number of iconic wines in a treasure vault ? Each collector brings his/her specific response emanating from his/her own wine experience. And ultimately, wine is about sharing !
Just like the ideal perpetual renewal of a wine cellar, consistency and surprises will be the hallmarks of Baghera’s autumn Wine o’clocks.
Thus, I have the tremendous pleasure to introduce our “ Forever Yours ” Wine o’clock sale.
