VINTAGES presents Ontario's first-ever commercial auction of fine and rare wines  

VINTAGES, the LCBO's fine wines and premium spirits division, in association with Ritchie's Auctioneers & Appraisers, announces the first commercial auction of fine and rare wines ever held in Ontario. The auction will take place at the Design Exchange, 234 Bay Street, Toronto, on November 9, 2002 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Wines to be sold at auction must first be consigned to the LCBO. Collectors interested in selling their wines must submit them for consideration for consignment by August 15, 2002, at the latest. All submissions should be fine, rare and collectible wines that have been stored consistently in temperature-controlled conditions. Old and rare wines are being sought from Burgundy, Bordeaux, Italy, Australia, California and other fine wine-growing regions. A wine expert selected by VINTAGES and Ritchie's will evaluate whether the submitted wines qualify as auction items.

A selection of the wines to be offered at auction will be available for tasting at a VINTAGES Pre-Auction Gala at the Royal Ontario Museum on November 6, 2002 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Tickets for this event will be available beginning October 2002.

A wine auction of this nature gives collectors a chance to buy rare products they may have only read about. This is a way to purchase some true gems that are not obtainable through any other channel.

To have wines considered for consignment, contact Stephen Ranger of Ritchie's at (416) 364-1864 or visit www.ritchies.com. To pre-order an auction catalogue, contact Ritchie's at (416) 364-3902 or email auction@ritchies.com. For general information on the VINTAGES wine auction, consumers should call VINTAGES Customer Service at (416) 365-5767 in Toronto, toll free at 1-800-266-4764 or via e-mail at vintages@lcbo.com.
