Bidding will be Available Exclusively on HDH’s Revolutionary Auction Website and Mobile App
(Chicago, IL)-Hart Davis Hart Wine Co. is thrilled to announce that its first internet-only auction will be held on Friday, July 29th. This landmark sale will feature a host of old and new world wine of incredible diversity and provenance. HDH will execute this sale by utilizing its groundbreaking bidding platform which is available online and through the HDH mobile app.
HDH rolled out its revolutionary bidding technology in March of 2015. The platform, which can be used for both absentee and live bidding, has been an integral part of every auction since and has greatly improved and enhanced the bidding experience. Thousands of clients have downloaded the app and many more have bid online, increasing the number of participants in each auction dramatically. The July auction will be the first time that the technology is used exclusively. The format of this sale is completely different from internet auctions held by HDH’s competitors. Like traditional auctions, absentee bidding will be blind and bidders can submit live bids on the day of the auction as each lot comes up for sale. Unlike traditional wine auctions, however, there will be no option for phone or in-person bidding. All bids must be submitted through the auction website (auction.hdhwine.com) or mobile app (available on Android and iOS devices).
The July sale will feature outstanding selections from around the globe that are sure to please every palate and budget. Those looking to purchase individual bottles at auction will be pleased to find many offerings from top producers including Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Screaming Eagle, Lafite Rothschild, and more. Also available are several cases of high scoring Bordeaux from great vintages that can be enjoyed any night of the week. Examples include 2009 Château Lascombes, 2009 Château Grand Mayne and 2005 Château Beauséjour. In addition to wine, the sale will feature an assortment of top Bourbon and Rye.
HDH is thrilled to be using this interactive and user-friendly technology to facilitate its first ever internet-only auction. This historic sale represents another way in which HDH is the technological leader of the industry. Wine collectors will not want to miss out on this groundbreaking sale.
Absentee and live bidding for the internet auction can be executed online at auction.hdhwine.com or via the HDH mobile app. On the day of the sale, bidders can watch a video feed of the auctioneer, place live bids, and track their wins and losses all in real-time. Bids will not be accepted by phone or fax for the internet-only sale.
