Sotheby’s goes Reta il

Hong Kong Tatler - - News -

The suc­cess of its wine re­tail ser­vice in New York and grow­ing de­mand for such an out­let in Asia led Sotheby’s to open its first shop in the re­gion. Sotheby’s Wine is lo­cated in the auc­tion house’s gallery on the fifth floor of One Pa­cific Place in Ad­mi­ralty. “Hong Kong is the most ex­cit­ing and dy­namic wine mar­ket in the world, serv­ing not only those who live in Hong Kong but buy­ers through­out Asia,” says Sotheby’s Wine CEO Jamie Richie. “We have had tremen­dous suc­cess in Hong Kong with our live auc­tion business, sell­ing HK$1.4 bil­lion of wines over the past four years, and we have seen sig­nif­i­cant de­mand from buy­ers want­ing to buy wines of the same qual­ity with the same high level of ser­vice, but at a fixed price and avail­able for next-day de­liv­ery. We have strong re­la­tion­ships with the world’s top wine­mak­ers, as well as with col­lec­tors through­out Asia, so we are uniquely placed to help wine lovers get the most out of one of life’s great­est plea­sures.”
