Heritage Auction - Familiar Cellar Name

#1 Post by Steve Anderson » September 3rd, 2019, 9:04 pm

Received the Heritage Auction Catalog for the September Fine and Rare Auction - did a double take when I saw the Cellar attribution at the bottom of the cover.

Heritage Auction Catalog - Sep 2019.jpg

https://wine.ha.com/c/auction-home.zx?s ... nfo-071713

I assume it is the same Mark G who frequently posts here. Nice collection of Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhone and Italian, but even a couple of bottles of Martinelli Jackass Zin at the end to get Mr. Alfert excited. Not sure the latter is one of Mark's consignments, although no consigners other than Mark are referenced for the online-only section that lot is a part of.

In all sincerity, assuming it is the same Mark Golodetz, I hope this is a nice cellar thinning exercise and nothing more serious.

Cheers!

Steve

He mentioned in the Inventory Reduction thread:

"Re: Monthly check-in: Cellar inventory reduction plan
#474 Post by Mark Golodetz » Wed Jul 31, 2019 10:19 am

I think I may win this month. + 40 minus 7000 give or take. (Going to auction)."

So yes, I assume that's him.

Couldn’t have at least thrown them up on Commerce corner for us to get some pre auction deals? I would have taken at least a six pack. [cheers.gif]

I thought he was called a “Distinguished English Gentleman”. Or should be, with that quantity.

Buy with confidence. My dealings with Mark have been exceptional. Over 2+ cases of gems.

I was gonna bid on the ‘59 Haut Brion, but it blows my budget for the remainder of the year.

Mark, very nice article, I learned more about your background than I have from many dinners.

We're out of the country during the auction, but I'll do my best with absentee bids. Love the collection of '70s white burgs!

A few additional bits and pieces. I kept back a few wines which I will put on Commerce Corner. A lot of German wines, many from the 1970s and a few really good Barolos.

Heritage has been a pleasure to work with, and I recommend them highly. In addition to putting together what has proved to be a tough auction (plenty of small lots rather than full cases) they relished the challenge, as it is the kind of geeky collection they like.

Although most of the wine is from me, not all is. I am on an I phone, but there should be a catalog at the house, so I can quickly determine what is mine.

Finally they happily agreed to be part of my annual benefit dinner picking up the catering bills, so all the money will go to the charities. A really lovely and surprising gesture.

Sorry for any confusion; my lots in the main sale are 1-405 and for the internet portion 1236 to the end. Many of those jaw dropping Burgundies sadly do not belong to me.

Thanks Mark. I am relieved to know that the wines I'm bidding on are, in fact, yours. Though I was very surprised at the Sherry lot (not that you were selling those wines but that you had ever purchased them) :)

I did my bit to run up up your bids. Outbid consistently on many lots! I did 'win' a six pack of sentimentally important Barolo that was a bit over my intended budget. I wasn't able to run up your bids yesterday... got distracted at work and was bummed to miss out on a bunch of 2010 Burgundy at (relatively) reasonable prices for items I specifically wanted to buy.

Oh well.. correction. I had thought I had won one lot I quite wanted... but I didn't... I clearly bungled it on the app (where I thought I bid X, but I guess I bid X - $50).... I had some guilt paying that much too... all sorts of mixed feelings here! On the positive side, the money I saved on missed lot has already been spent... champagne.gif

It was tough, I was expecting a little more. Not a great week for wine auctions, sale at the other houses were also little lackluster. But pretty well all sold, except for some reason the older wines did not. So happy to bring them home. And thank you all for bidding.

Mark - I bid on a bottle of California wine thinking it was yours until I saw your lot numbers above. Maybe I just have not looked in a long time but the California wines, particular, some of the cult stuff which I did not think many people wanted seemed strong based on a quick glance.

I think more and more people want Cali wines.
I walked into Total Wines shop yesterday for first time. I saw 2 very small shalves of Red Burg, bigger selections of BDX but huge selections of Cali wines.

There is no real wine people at Total wine. Their main business model is buy direct and maximize profit. Cali wines always have been very popular for the casual wine drinker. I got the catalog but totally missed the auction. The market is really soft.
