Wally’s Auction House Makes Its New York Debut with $3 Million Worth of Wine

Wally’s Auction House will hold its inaugural New York auction, with more than $3 million worth of fine and rare wines, on November 13 at an exclusive dinner at the Whitney Museum of American Art prepared by Wolfgang Puck. Held in partnership with Crush Wine & Spirits, the dinner is open to an undisclosed number of bidders, who can reserve a seat for $600 per person for the evening dinner and auction.

The most coveted lot might be the 2010 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Collection, which contains 33 bottles, in their original wood cases, from each of the Grand Cru red vineyards (lot estimated at $85,000 to $130,000). Another highlight comes from Dom Pérignon Oenothèque, which released a selection of 12 bottles from its 1982 vintage just for this auction (lot estimated at $14,000 to $20,000). Other lots to keep on your radar include six bottles of Vosne-Romanée Cros Parantoux Henri Jayer 1993 (lot estimated at $24,000 to $36,000) and a seven-bottle vertical of Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon (lot estimated at $14,000 to $20,000), comprising a bottle of each vintage from 1992 through 1998.
