Saturday March 1, 2014 models will strut down the runway showcasing the bottles of wine with their designer duds. The moment the last model walks, a live auction ensues and the bidding begins!
Every bottle is special and wine-collector worthy. The wines are almost too good to drink… I said, almost. All of the wines being sold have had a wine score of between 94-100 points! There are interesting sizes of bottles being sold such as Magnums and Jeroboams.
A taster of the caliber of wine being sold:
- Chateau Margaux 1986
- Tenuta dell’ Ornellaia:Masseto 1996
- Chateau Haut Brion 2005
- Chateau de Beaucastel: Chateu Neuf de Pape 2010 (Magnum)
- Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2004
The auction also showcases other items aside from the magnificent bottles of collector wines.
Since 1994, Telluride AIDS Benefit has donated over $1,800,000 toward HIV/AIDS education, advocacy, clinical care and NGOs. That is a cause worth collecting fine wines for, wouldn’t you agree?
