Chris de Burgh to auction off hamper beverage collection
Published on 03/02/2011

Pop star Chris de Burgh is planning to auction off a selection of fine wines.

Although the singer admitted his wife and daughter prefer to drink white varieties of the hamper beverage, his collection is mostly red.

The assortment consists of 320 bottles and 84 magnums and de Burgh commented on how it was amassed.

"I've greatly enjoyed collecting all sorts of varieties and vintages from all over the world," he said.

The 62-year-old noted he has tasted all of the kinds of wine included in the mixture and therefore knows what he'll be missing, however, he added he thinks it is time someone else enjoyed them.

The drinks will be sold off at Christie's on March 24th and the hoard is expected to go for an estimated total of £200,000.

Last week, it was revealed the UK government has a wine cellar stocked with vintages which, altogether, are thought to be worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.
