In a packed auction room, Zachys Hong Kong finished 2016 with extraordinary results in its Fine & Rare Wines and Spirits Auction. The auction realized HK$30,658,933 / US$3,955,991 and featured five of the most revered collections in the world, along with the other consignments from renowned private collectors.

Once again, the Mandarin Oriental was packed for this one-day auction, and clients flew in from around the globe to bid aggressively in the room. Not only were Hong Kong and mainland China major players, but Japan was a huge participant in this sale.
