Rare American Wines and Whiskies to Cross the Block at Christie’s

The sale will include cult classics such as Pappy Van Winkle, Sine Qua Non and Screaming Eagle...

Christie’s Wine is proud to round out its spring auction roster with the fourth annual Christie’s Wine Online/NYC: All-American Sale, kicking off on Tuesday, June 28.

Rare American Wines, and, for the first time, Whiskies lead the selection with cult classics including Pappy Van Winkle, Sine Qua Non and Screaming Eagle. The span of American vintages in this sale evoke a historically relevant time and place for the wines and spirits on offer and are true venerable pieces of American liquor history.

The innovation and uniquely free winemaking methods of Sine Qua Non, the history of Chateau Montelena, and the distinct American expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from Screaming Eagle are all evoked through the diverse and decidedly unique sale. Whiskey highlights include a very rare and unique carboy of Pre-Prohibition bourbon from the now defunct Cedar Brook Distillery and a rare lot of A. H. Hirsch 16 Year Old, distilled in 1974.

More than 170 lots comprise the sale with rare bottlings from Sine Qua Non start from $300 and full case quantities of Chateau Montelena from the 1980s and 1990s from under $1,000. The entirety of the sale is now live and available for browsing here: Christies Wine Online NYC: ALL – AMERICAN  

The first lot from the sale, Cedar Brook Distillery, Plankinton Reserve 1903 will be on view to the public from June 28 through July 12 at Christie’s Rockefeller Center galleries.
