Zachys’ President, Jeff Zacharia said: “We’re delighted to have started out 2015 with a bang. With our multi-vendor sales in Hong Kong and in New York, our key offerings such as the cellar of Frank Komorowski, and our domaine-direct sales, we are truly the go-to auction house for all consignors big and small.

“Our sales cater to the wide breadth of tastes of our clients internationally, and our auctions are considered must-attend fine wine events.”
