Wine AUCTIONS: Fine & Rare Wines


Due to the location of our main gallery, it is natural that Chatelaine's Antiques & Collectibles has always been the leader in offering California wines of all price ranges at auction since the inception of wine auctions in our state. Perhaps the most profound change in the auction markets has been the huge swell in demand for the finest names in California wineries. Demand, once only represented by the faithful on the West Coast and a few brave souls in the East, has expanded to not only nearly every state, but overseas as well.

Fine & Rare Wines

This is a particularly special time for us here as Chatelaine's Antiques & Collectibles embarks on a new era. Exciting times are undeniably ahead!

With our September Fine and Rare Wine Sale we welcome in the Harvest season. For this particular sale we have brought to the auction block an array of rare collectible and consumable wines that strike virtually every corner of the palate, and pocketbook.
