January 17th 2017, Baghera Wines – the leading Swiss fine wine auctioneer – held a new edition of their “Wine o’clock” online auctions, “Rooster Year 2017” as a tribute to the Chinese New Year to commence at the end of the month.

Originating from a private cellar on the shores of the Leman lake and highlighting some of the rarest wine signatures, this “online only” auction drew in fine wine collectors from all over the world, reaching top prices on the Internet.

Notably for a Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Romanée Conti 2011 6 bottle lot, which went for CHF 62’400 during Baghera Wines’ auction, selling to an Asian client. This significant amount establishes a new record price for wine web auctions, and becomes the most expensive wine lot ever sold online in Switzerland, surpassing the record performed by Baghera Wines at one of their previous Wine o'clocks in 2016.
