This parcel of wine and spirits was brought to us by a long-time aficionado, who began collecting wine in 1981. His interest in collecting began during his career, where every successful business closure was celebrated with fine wine. His wines and spirits were purchased through the SAQ, LCBO, and US independent retailers, and were stored in his temperature and humidity-controlled home cellar before coming to auction.
