Dates of El Bulli cellar auction revealed

Sotheby’s has announced the dates for the sale of El Bulli’s wine cellar in Hong Kong and New York next year.

The wines from the restaurant, which was frequently counted among the world’s best and closed in July last year, will go on sale first of all in Hong Kong on 3 April 2013 and then in New York on 26 April 2013.

Since closing, it has become the El Bulli foundation, an experimental cooking centre. Proceeds from the auction will go towards the foundation.

Serena Sutcliffe MW, head of the international wine department, said: “Those of us lucky enough to have dined at El Bulli will never forget the extraordinary sensations laid before us. There was both an explosive genius about the food and a calm, professional way in which it was delivered, so that one could discover with awe all the secrets of smoke, foam and spheres of liquid involving melon to olives.

“There was surprise, delight and elation in every dish, a seamless procession of magic that opened up before one’s eyes, only to disappear in a moment of bliss! The extra ingredient in these meals was the intuitive pairing of these creations with the enticing, and phenomenally interesting, wine list. We are delighted to be able to bring these wines to auction so collectors all over the world can share the enchantment of El Bulli.”
