The Night St. George"s Home for the Poor wine auction, to be held on March 14, is normally open only to industry buyers, but this year an agreement has been reached for the auctioneer to allow some private collection clients to bid as well.
The Delaunay family had a long-standing relationship with the Night St. George's Home for the Poor Wine Auction, with Laurent Delaunay's grandfather buying wines from these cellars long before the 1961 auction began.
Interested buyers will be required to purchase a minimum of 24 bottles of wine. They will be welcome to stay at the Château de Guilly hotel, visit the Edouard Delaunay winery, and then attend a lunch event at the Night St. George's Home for the Poor wine auction.
St. George's Home for the Poor was built in 1270 and is much more famous than the Bernese Home of Mercy, which was built in 1443.
