Christie’s Wine Department is pleased to announce two spectacular sales this season from the Cellar of Irwin Kotovsky. Beginning in the Americas with The Two Continents Collection – The Private Cellar of Irwin Kotovsky Part I (6-18 April) followed by London with The Two Continents Collection – The Private Cellar of Irwin Kotovsky Part II (8-22 June).

Mr. Irwin Kotovsky was a passionate collector, who assembled a spectacular cellar over his lifetime.

Also happening this April is the exceptional Fine and Rare Wines Online: Featuring the Ruan Collection (7-19 April) from which we are proud to present the collection of John Ruan III, who was a noted philanthropist and a pillar of the Des Moines community.
