 Nicely done, Bomba!

i won a couple of lots at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra charity auction. I stopped attending these in 2014 because the hammer prices were silly, so I was surprised on Thursday that many lots went for relatively reasonable prices, and some were steals. There’s also no buyers’ premium or sales tax at these charity auctions.

1 x 2000 Aldo Conterno Barolo Riserva Granbussia

1 x 1996 Aurelio Settimo Barolo Rocche

1 x 1998 Batasiolo Barolo Vigneto Corda Della Briccolina

1 x 2004 Cavallotto Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppi

1 x 1997 Marchesi di Gresy Barbaresco Martinenga Gaiun

1 x 1990 Produttori del Barbaresco Asili

3 x 1996 Isole e Olena Cepparello

1 x 1997 Isole e Olena Cepparello

The Cepparello were in one lot, and the rest were a second lot. I got the Barolo/Barbaresco for WS low, but paid CAD... so I basically paid 25% less than WS low. ($1 CAD = $0.75 USD)

Nice lots, Sunnylea57!

Nicely done Sunny.  Some other friends won some lots there.  I gave up on it because of the stupid hammer prices in recent years.  Maybe enough people stayed away that there were some more reasonable prices... Might give it another try next year.
