We are delighted to introduce Christie's fourth annual All-American
Sale, a curated selection and celebration of American winemaking that has developed into one of our landmark sales.
This year, the sale coincides with the 40th anniversary of the Judgement of Paris — arguably the first grand outing of American wines on the world stage. Since that defining moment, American wines have continued to astound, evidenced by our stellar offering of iconic Californian winesacross multiple collections and vintages, including Screaming Eagle, Harlan Estate, Bryant and Sine Qua Non. For the first time, the sale features exceptional whiskies, among them a two-gallon bottle of 1903 Plankinton Reserve Cedar Brook whiskey — one of the rarest and most unique spirits lots we've ever offered — in addition to Pappy van Winkle 23 Year Old, Hirsch 1974 and Single Barrel Willet's.
