Andrew Lloyd Webber Hong Kong Wine Auction

Here is an interesting interview by Serena Sutcliffe MW with Lord Lloyd Webber. The interview is timed for the Sotheby's auction tomorrow (January 22nd) in Hong Kong of part of his wine cellar.
Lord Lloyd Webber has been a massive wine collector for many years.
It is interesting the link between fine art and wine collecting. His first love of Burgundy was inspired from the amazing architecture of the churches and the villages. I must say whenever I think Burgundy I think of the incredible mosaic of roof tiles and rolling hills with rooftops of hidden villages. However I am some way short of Lord L-W's cellar!!
Great to hear the gushing awe when Serena and Andrew talk about the legendary Chateau Palmer 1961. Like naughty school children. It will be interesting to see the prices achieved at this auction. The major auction houses have not been slow to develop links with the expanding Asian fine wine market.
