Strauss & Co is pleased to announce details for its live broadcast auction of modern, post-war and contemporary art, decorative arts and jewellery, as well as a standalone sale of sweet and fortified wines and whisky, due to be held on 11 and 12 July 2021. This live auction will be conducted in real time by Strauss & Co’s experienced team of auctioneers and temporarily replaces the online-only format of the annual July sale so as to enable digital infrastructure maintenance.
“This fantastic mid-winter auction will showcase selections from each of Strauss & Co’s departments,” says Suzie Goodman, an executive director at Strauss & Co. “The two-day sale features four sessions exclusively devoted to art and one to decorative arts and books. It commences with a special session compiled by our wine department.
Klein Constantia Vin de Constance 1987
The July wine sale features the world’s greatest sweet wines in a stunning selection of rare, natural and fortified, sweet wines. 18 vintages of Vin de Constance back to 1987, KWV Tawny through to 1929, Boplaas ports, Nederberg Edelkeur and Mullineux Olerasay showcase South African sweet wine history.
The icon international line-up includes Chateau d’Yquem, Suduiraut, Chapoutier, Kracher and Egon Muller. We are also proud to introduce a small selection of fine spirits with this sale, as Strauss & Co looks to expand this rewarding category. The highlight a Port Ellen 30 Year Old as part of Douglas Laing’s Old & Rare Platinum Selection.
