Ben brings a wealth of experience to the Hart Davis Hart team, having worked in the New York wine auction market with two major firms, including Zachys, where he served as Lead Specialist. He has worked extensively with many important collectors and sommeliers and is a highly effective ambassador for us during his frequent travels to cellars. Ben’s wine expertise is supplemented by the considerable time he has logged visiting winemakers and touring the vineyards of France, and he recently tested for the Wine & Spirit Education Trust Diploma. Just as importantly, Ben has an authoritative grasp of the rare wine market and can offer clients sage advice on current trends. His unique expertise helps ensure that our appraisals are an accurate reflection of the most current market.
Prior to moving to New York, Ben worked with Kahn’s Fine Wines in Indianapolis, a leading firm in that important market. We are thrilled that he decided to return to the Midwest. He holds a degree in Economics from the University of Wisconsin.
