Fine Wine


SEPTEMBER 14 - 22

September’s Fine Wine Auction features close to 500 lots of high desirability and diversity, including a superb selection of Bordeaux, Burgundy, California, Port and Italian. These Old and New World Wines include the rare Aubert Chardonnay, a collection of European dessert wines, verticals of Solaia, 100 point Sassicaia and many full wooden cases. There are wines for every collector: to cellar, to impress, to drink now and to treasure.

Waddington’s is pleased to offer Second Harvest’s charity donated wines in this auction, lots 363-376. Second Harvest is Canada’s largest food rescue charity, helping to nourish people through school programs, seniors’ centres, shelters, food banks, and regional food hubs.

Due to COVID-19, Second Harvest was unable to hold their annual Live Charity Wine Auction earlier this year. We are proud to play a small part in helping them achieve their fundraising goals.
