My dear friend, founder and co-author of The World Atlas of Wine Hugh Johnson has sold Saling Hall, his beautiful house in Essex, and a big sale of its contents will be held by Sworders at 11 am on Monday at Stansted Mountfitchet auction rooms.

The furniture and works of art will be auctioned at 10 am on Tuesday 14 May but the biggest sale, on the Monday, is of the wine since Hugh and Judy's new house in London does not have anything like as extensive a cellar as Saling. You can download the list of wines that are offered for sale here. (This picture is on the cover of the paper version.)

I do hope that none of my books is included in lot number 316.
