Zachys debuts in Las Vegas and San Francisco

New York – In February 2008, Zachys Wine Auctions is pleased to announce its inaugural auctions in Las Vegas, Nevada and San Francisco, California. On Friday, February 8th, Zachys will host the first commercial wine auction in Las Vegas at ALEX at Wynn, aptly titled LAS VEGAS. Later in the month, in conjunction with Daniel Johnnes’ La Paulée de San Francisco, Zachys will hold a Burgundy-only sale, titled The La Paulée Auction, on Friday, February 29th.

Las Vegas is being held in conjunction with Keep Memory Alive, the fundraising arm of the Lou Ruvo Brain Institute, dedicated to the conquest of Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, and all forms of memory disorders. A portion of the proceeds of this auction, as well as the hammer price of a six-bottle lot of Chateau Petrus 2005 (donated by Don and Jeff Zacharia and Andrew McMurray) will be donated to Keep Memory Alive. This auction consists of 376 lots of top-notch wines, from festive Champagnes to case lots of blue chip Bordeaux, to prime Burgundy and the best from the New World, including an incredible thirty-bottle lot of Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon 1996! The auction will be held at ALEX located inside Wynn Las Vegas, at 11:30AM on Friday, February 8th. Mobil Five Star and AAA Five Diamond Rated Chef Alessandro Stratta will prepare a light lunch buffet, available for registered bidders. Catalogs for this auction will be mailed on January 15th, and available online January 8th.

La Paulée de San Francisco, Daniel Johnnes’ homage to the synonymous annual Burgundy festival in Meursault, will occur on Saturday, March 1st, 2008 at The Westin St. Francis. As a sponsor of La Paulée, Zachys is proud to present a special Burgundy-only auction in keeping with the spirit of this exciting weekend. The La Paulée Auction, A Celebration of the Wines of Burgundy, consists of 300 lots, beginning at 12:30PM on Friday, February 29th at Michael Mina, San Francisco. A stunning selection of Burgundies will be on offer in this afternoon auction, from mature rarities to hard-to-find recent releases, and everything in between. A number of lots will be available for delivery from the auction room for those wishing to share them in the course of La Paulée.

Zachys’ President Jeff Zacharia commented, “Zachys is incredibly excited about the events that February has in store for us. We are delighted to be associated with the teams at Keep Memory Alive, ALEX, Wynn Las Vegas and La Paulée de San Francisco. Although they are ‘destination’ sales, both of the selections are very accessible, and we hope that all of Zachys’ friends, old and new, will celebrate these specialty auctions with us.”
