Sotheby’s at the Steamboat Wine Festival

Sotheby’s Wine specialists Eli Rodriguez and Mike Hoagland went on the road to the mountains of Colorado for the Steamboat Wine Festival (10–14 August), the 13th edition of the region’s premier event for the finest drinking and dining. In three lively and informative seminars over the weekend, Eli and Mike shared their expertise and answered questions about starting a cellar for drinking or investment, how to buy at auction, and a guide to the top wine producing regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy. For tastings at each seminar, the team offered a curated selection from Sotheby’s Wine Retail such as Dauvissat Chablis ”Vaillons” 1er Cru 2011, Mortet Gevrey Chambertin 2009, Tignanello 2012 and more.
