Have you ever wondered what the effect of age is on a good wine but haven’t made the investment to find out? Have you ever give any thought to the condition and quality that wines bought at auction may deliver? To answer these questions Guild President Bill Ellis has been assembling a number of well-aged wines through auctions over the past few years for our members to taste and rate.
