Rarest and Finest Wines

Pandolfini Casa d’Aste since 1999 has been dedicated to auctions of fine wines and collectible spirits, offering our public an answer to the growing general interest in this sector. Our auctions have now become essential appointments for experts and enthusiasts of the sector at national level, and increasingly also internationally.

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 rapidly reducing, both as regards the type of proposals offered at auction, and as regards the average hammer prices for the same bottle.

In particular, the auctions of 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 regards Italian bottles. ; while for abroad, France dominates, with the great Châteaux of Bordeaux such as Lafite Rothschild, Mouton Rothschild, Haut-Brion, Latour, Margaux, and the most prestigious Domaine of Burgundy: first of all Romanée Conti, but also Armand Rousseau, Leroy and Coche Dury.

The growth in importance of the bottles proposed, together with the dissemination initiatives through the web, social media and the main sector magazines, has attracted the interest of an increasing number of buyers, who, thanks also to our PandolfiniLive online platform, participate at auctions from every corner of the world.

From the beginning of our business we wanted to activate high-level collaborations, such as the one with Il Gambero Rosso, which began in 1999 and lasted for 4 years, during which we organized annual at the Hilton Hotel and the City of Taste in Rome. auctions of fine and collectible wines.

In 2004, however, the partnership that continues to this day was born with Le Guide de l'Espresso and Pitti Immagine. The result of this joint-venture is an annual event held in October, organized in evocative settings of the beautiful city of Florence such as the Stazione Leopolda or at the Central Market. The event includes the presentation of the Wine Guide and the L'Espresso Restaurant Guide, followed by the auction sale of fine and collectible wines curated by us.

To make our auctions events of international importance, the department has organized over the years tasting events with some of the Italian wine excellences and beyond: Sassicaia, Solaia, Ornellaia, Masseto, Dom Perignon, Salòn, Pol Roger, Krug and Perrier-Jouët .

Over the years, the department has also benefited from numerous initiatives, through international partnerships such as the Community of San Patrignano, the Archconfraternity of Mercy in Florence and the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Foundation.

To make our customer base even wider, the department inaugurated the Pandolfini SmartWine & Spirits format in 2020: auctions that take place exclusively online, in the PandolfiniTempo formula.

In these 20 years of activity the results obtained have always been excellent, crowning Pandolfini the national leader in the sector.
