A phenomenal array of the finest private wine (& spirit) collections 

More than 3 centuries of international wine production with a single common denominator: passion

With "Moonlight", Baghera/wines is putting its name to a landmark sale where discovery is the name of the game. Bathed in a metaphorical lunar glow, certain forgotten vintages and others originating from territories worth (re)discovering offer a new perspective for enlightened wine lovers in search of new horizons to explore. Like adventurers in a land of ever-changing attractions, the Baghera/wines teams make use of intelligence and vision to provide a customized immersion into the passion behind wine. 

A subtle symphony of private collections covering a period in winemaking from 1895 to 2019 underpins this new chapter by Baghera/wines designed to nourish the interest of collectors with increasingly sophisticated tastes. Over and above the thrill of the moment, in-house specialist teams pay every attention to detail and are uncompromising when it comes to storage conditions, hygrometry and temperature control. 

Michael and Julie, Baghera/wines’ founders and auctioneers for the sale, comment: "The excitement is palpable. 'Moonlight' is undoubtedly THE wine auction of the year. There are many happy moments in our business, and it was one of these that inspired the title of this physical sale in autumn 2022: it's that sacred instant when we bring out treasures that have been buried for decades. Ideally preserved and pampered, these bottles are the pure reflection of our philosophy, which is focused on extreme quality. We will also rediscover the joy of getting together amid an uncertain economic and geopolitical context. Such times are the spice of life and we expect collectors from all over the world to join us in celebrating the joys of wine in a professional and highly competent setting.”

Perfectly formulated, “Moonlight” represents the quintessence of the ideal collection.
