You’ve got to pick a bottle or two, even though they’re a pretty penny
The latest in a line of wine auctions, the Cape Fine and Rare event included a number of collector’s items
It probably has nothing to do with Covid-19, but suddenly we’re having a bit of a mini wine-auction season. The first such event was the Old Johannesburg Warehouse (OJW) Sale in late April. Quite a lot of the stock offered by OJW is old and visibly unloved, but this doesn’t deter bargain hunters willing to take their chances with not-always-perfect storage conditions. I’ve shopped there over the years and had surprisingly few disappointments, and the satisfaction of picking up some real gems.
