“I’ve always been drawn to the energy and excitement of the auction world,” says Erickson, a former lawyer who followed a lifelong dream to work in wine (her family owns a wine cellar in Eger, Hungary). A frequent traveler, Erickson’s passion project is developing Zachys’s business throughout Europe, particularly through online auctions. “They have attracted an awesome crowd of young and up-and-coming collectors, allowing us to offer a wider range of amazing wines outside of traditional blue-chip wines,” says Erickson.
