Christie's auction house is putting some of the most exclusive Californian wines up for auction on 1 September. The highlight is the largest known collection in the world of the boutique winery Screaming Eagle, which includes more than 20 vintages. Among them are rare magnum bottles with estimated values of up to 9,000 US dollars.

Christie's emphasises that all bottles were purchased directly from the winery and kept in professional storage rooms with controlled temperature and humidity. They come to auction in original wooden crates, which were opened for the first time during the inspection by the auction house's experts.

In this first "California only" auction by Christie's in 20 years, other rare wines from Napa Valley will also be offered. Among them are a case of magnum bottles of Stags Leap Cask 23 from the 1985 vintage and several three- and six-litre bottles of Groth Reserve Cabernet 1985, which the auctioneer says are "among California's highest-rated wines of all time". A case of Beaulieu Vineyards Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1968 and several bottles of Heitz Martha's Vineyard from the 1968 and 1969 vintages, as well as several vintages of Harlan Estate and other rare wines, round out the offerings. The auction will take place exclusively online.
