Rarest and Finest Wines

Since 1999, Pandolfini Casa d’Aste has been organizing auctions of the rarest and finest wines, with the aim of offering our public unique opportunities in satisfying the growing demand and general interest in this sector. Our wine auctions have now become essential appointments for experts and enthusiasts of the sector at a national and international level.

The market of fine wines is evolving, with wine enthusiasts increasingly attentive to the offer of the market and in search of rare bottles, vintage years that can no longer be found or wines made from special grape varieties.
In collectible wine auctions, a special place of importance is likewise reserved for bottles produced in limited quantities, a characteristic that is capable not only of guaranteeing quality, but which increases the value of the bottles, transforming that which is already a pleasure to own into a profitable investment.
In just a few years, the market of wines has become a sector par excellence, as confirmed by the results achieved in rare and fine wine auctions. Today, the gap that saw Italy in a subordinate position to the most important squares for wine auctions such as London, Hong Kong, New York, and Paris, is quickly disappearing, both with regards to the type of proposals offered at auction, as well as for the average hammer prices for the same bottle. 

In particular, the collectible wine auctions organized by Pandolfini in recent years have confirmed the positive trend of great wines, affirming the dominance of Supertuscans such as Ornellaia, Sassicaia, Masseto and Solaia, and of the most famous Piedmontese, such as Giacomo Conterno, Gaja and Bruno Giacosa.

 As far as the foreign wine market is concerned, France continues to dominate, with the great Châteaux of Bordeaux such as Lafite Rothschild, Pétrus, Mouton Rothschild, Haut-Brion, Latour, Margaux, and the most prestigious Domaine of Burgundy: first among them, Romanée Conti, but also Armand Rousseau, Leroy, Henri Jayer and Coche-Dury. In our catalogs, ample room is likewise made for the finest sparkling wines par excellence: Champagne, with its leading Maisons of Dom Pérignon, Bollinger, Salon, Krug, Perrier-Jouët, Selosse, Louis Roederer, and Pol Roger. 

The growth in importance of the bottles proposed in the wine auctions, together with the promotional initiatives of Pandolfini undertaken through the web, social media, and the main sector magazines, and the exclusive tasting events featuring some of the very best premium wine labels in the world, has attracted the interest of an increasing number of buyers of rare wines, who, thanks also to our PandolfiniLive online platform, participate at our auctions from every corner of the world. Investing in collectible wines is also an opportunity for those with a limited budget available. This kind of investment in alternative to art and jewellery is ideal for investing your money in a physical object characterized by a top-of-the-line performance, which has also proven itself to be an excellent safe-haven asset, especially in the mid to long-term. Investing in collectible wines is not a passing trend – but rather an established way of transforming into capital that which, without any doubt, is a fundamental component: a passion driven by the rarity of the bottles.
