Iron Gate Auctions Impact | Carmelo Giordani, WineRoutes

Carmelo Giordani of VineRoutes chats with Warren Porter of Iron Gate Wine to discuss the launch of Iron Gate Auctions.

Warren explains that while “Historically, live auctions have held a rarefied image and attracted an exclusive wine buying pool. With the advent of online auctions in Canada, a broader audience of collectors and first-time buyers have the chance to find vintage wines rarely available in Canada.”

Carmelo points out that Iron Gate Auctions has raised $860,000 for charities, not for profits, and cultural organizations across Canada. Thes organizations include Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Canadian Opera Company, Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Bard on the Beach/Vancouver International Wine Festival and JAZZ.FM91
