London - Following the success of Dreweatts' inaugural London Fine Wine auction, their October Fine and Rare sale offers buyers the chance to buy some truly outstanding wines and spirits from the classical regions of the world. The sale will be held in conjunction with their auction partner Bid for Wine on Thursday 16th October 2014 at Dreweatts' London saleroom in Mayfair.

Chris Hambleton Wine Consultant for Dreweatts and Consignments Director of auction partner Bid for Wine said; "We are very pleased to be able to bring to market several vintages of Chateau d'Yquem, that are in absolutely stunning condition. For those with a sweet tooth there is also a rare chance to buy some early Tokaji from 1924, again in superb shape. As always we have strong representation from across France with all of the Bordeaux First Growths represented alongside some excellent large formats to include a five litre bottle of Vieux Chateau Certan 1982. This sale will also include a section of very fine spirits, among them several very old bottles of Remy Martin Louis XIII and a number of scarce scotch whiskies. Some choice wines from Italy include both Sassacaia and Solaia and the sale finishes with several lots of Iconic Australian wines and four lots of California's flagship red Opus One."
