Bordeaux Fine Wine Auction for Australian Wildlife

Bordeaux Fine Wine Auction for Australian Wildlife

Are you after high koala-ty French wines? Goanna bid at our charity auction online or at our Galah events. Okay, we’ll stop. View the Auction Here.

Taronga Foundation

Seriously, we love fine wine and we love Australian wildlife. With that in mind, we’re using one to help raise funds for the other. Langton’s and the Châteaux of Bordeaux are teaming up for a charity auction with all proceeds going to the Taronga Conservation Society Australia’s Wildlife Crisis Appeal. You can access rare and back-vintage bottles of claret. Oh… and did we mention they’re all large format?

‘Langton’s and the Châteaux of Bordeaux are teaming up for a charity auction...’

This auction coincides with our Châteaux of Bordeaux tasting event and dinner series. We reached out to our friends in Bordeaux. Like the rest of the world, they were moved by the images over the summer.

“The desire of the wineries in Bordeaux to help is amazing. They were quite taken aback with the bushfire devastation over summer and wanted to auction some items to contribute to a charity that assists wildlife,” said Langton’s Senior Wine Buyer and Bordeaux expert Florian Thoelke.

‘The desire of the wineries in Bordeaux to help is amazing.’

NOTE: A three-litre bottle of wine is known as a double magnum In Burgundy and in Champagne, it’s known as a Jeroboam. In Bordeaux, however, a Jeroboam is (since the late 1970s) a five-litre bottle. Oneupmanship between French wine regions? Pas possible! Bordeaux is bigger, and bigger is better.

At the top of this auction is a unique opportunity to bid on the Ultimate Bordeaux Experience. Make your way to the banks of the Gironde and the Bordelais will look after you with tours, tastings and treats. All in the name of a worthy cause.

If you’re not planning a trip to France, you can bid on magnums of 2000 Pontet-Canet, 2013 Léoville Barton, 2010 Pavie-Macquin and a five-litre Bordeaux Jeroboam of 2001 Château Phélan Ségur and more. See the online auction for a full list.
