An exceptional auction of fine wines and spirits took place in October 2020, launching a first collaboration with Paris-based international auction house Artcurial. The sale conducted in Paris and broadcast on the Artcurial website featured 126 lots, including 12 extraordinary star lots, most of which were unique formats that are not available on the market and come from the private collections of the original owners. The sale also presented a diverse selection of cases and bottles of fine wines, vintage champagnes and wide-ranging spirits for an average auction lot estimate between US$3,500 and US$7,000, with some lots selling for over US$11,000. The sale raised US$326,000.
The One Drop Foundation would also like to acknowledge the unwavering support of Guy Laliberté, Laurent Dassault, Artcurial and Hillebrand, as well Caves Carrière, Domaine Jean Grivot, Champagne Barons de Rothschild, and Domaine Faiveley, who dedicated their time and energy to the success of the sale.
