Two couples will take part in a pair of exceptional yet very different experiences: an insider’s view of the Bordeaux estate Château La Conseillante and an ultra-luxury cruise on the Evrima, part of the The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection.

Nestled in Pomerol’s Right Bank, Château La Conseillante boasts vines dating back to the 1750s, and it’s been in the Nicolas family’s care since 1871. Their 29-acre estate is home to 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, yielding wines that define elegance, grace, style and class.

The winning bidders’ party will stay overnight at the Château La Conseillante family home, an opportunity rarely granted to outsiders. They will be hosted by Marielle Cazaux, who has been the winemaker and managing director of the estate since 2015. Marielle brings her extensive experience in viticulture and oenology to the production and marketing of the wines, working closely with members of the Nicolas family.

In February of 2025, both couples will travel by private jet to Barbados and board the Evrima, the first ship in The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, for an intimate cruise through the Caribbean. With a capacity of just 298 passengers, the Evrima combines the amenities of a cruise ship with the privacy of a yacht.

Your innovative 611-square foot Loft Suite features a double vanity master bathroom with soaking tub and separate shower on the lower level, along with a custom King bed sleep system. On the upper level, you’ll find a modern living and dining area, a powder room and a private, spacious terrace overlooking the ocean.

During your week on the Evrima, you’ll visit ports usually not accessible to cruise ships, such as the tiny island of Bequia in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the isolated South Friar’s Bay on St. Kitts and Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands.

This lot also includes two extremely rare Three Liter bottles of 2016 Château La Conseillante, which garnered near-perfect ratings from critics. Beautifully seamless yet powerful, this wine is a full-bodied and polished Pomerol with wonderful purity of fruit, perfect integration of tannins and acidity and the ability to improve with several decades of bottle age.

Experience a new level of luxury with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, along with unprecedented insider access at one of Bordeaux’s great wine estates—the highest bid can make it yours!
