Hickstead wine cellar goes on sale

Cases of Lafite, Mouton, Margaux and La Mission are among the lots to be auctioned during a sale of the late Douglas Bunn’s wine cellar at Hickstead Place on 10 February at London auctioneers Bonhams.

As well as building the All-England show jumping course, Douglas Bunn was renowned for hosting lavish parties and the contents of the cellar are testament to his expertise in buying fine wine.

Richard Harvey, head of the Bonhams wine department, said: "There are cases of some magnificent vintages, but the cellar also contained a wide range of esoteric and interesting bottles."
