The wines to offered in the upcoming internet auction are the leftovers from last month's Vintages Auction. I have trouble getting interested in poring over a bunch of sloppy seconds.

Since these wines couldn't cover the reserve price, I wonder if they will have the same reserve this time around.

I spoke to John Yoxall yesterday and he confirmed the dates with me, just an FYI its not all leftovers from the auction as suggested, they actually have over 700 lots and John told me there is some great wine available including tons of Champagne and great value wines

Of course he said that. What would you have expected him to say? "LCBO and value" do not belong in the same sentence. It's a misnomer (oxymoron) just like jumbo shrimp, freezer burn and with the recent developments in the USA, military intelligence Confused

All jokes aside i think there will be some decent deals at this online auction, most of the lots are new consignments consisting of lots that came in too late for the last live auction and lots from well know consignors that are in constant contact with LCBO, Yoxall is an honest guy and really doesnt have anything to gain from trying to make it sound better than it is, when was the last time you saw a government employee rewarded for a job well done?

I am not a consignor with the LCBO online auction this year actually, but i do believe that with 700+ lots and from what Yoxall told me its sounds like some very good wines to be had and hopefully at decent prices, i just got the most recent vintages catalogue and they have a bunch of stuff there that im actually interested in for a change so i will only buy if there are deals!
