I am interested in acquiring some older/unique wines. I am a college student with limited funds; I consume two, ten to thirty-dollar bottles of wine per week. I do not yet own any interesting bottles. Are charity auctions good ways in which to find interesting lots at decent prices? I live in the Atlanta area, and read that an auction is coming up at the High Museum at the end of March. I commend the intent of charity auctions, but wish to know whether values can be found, or if in general, prices are inflated because of the charity aspect. I would be looking to spend a maximum of about one thousand dollars to ideally obtain a Bordeaux or Burgundy lot. I would like to purchase some wine to hold, in order to begin a collection. I appreciate any advice regarding charity auctions.
