WINE AUCTIONS END 2015 ON A POSITIVE NOTE. SOTHEBY’S, HART DAVIS HART, ZACHYS AND CHRISTIE’S RECORDED TOP BIDS AND BORDEAUX WINES ARE ONCE AGAIN THE BEST PLAYERS. THE TOP ITALIAN WINES ARE SASSICAIA, MASSETO, ORNELLAIA, GIACOSA, BIONDI SANTI AND GAJA

2015 closed with a bang under the hammers of the auctioneers of the major "fine wines" auctions.
