Experience the glamour and excitement of one of the world’s most famous charity wine auctions. Auction Napa Valley always brings surprises, with ultra-luxury auction lots and rare experiences for oenophiles. And next year will be even more special – as Napa Valley Vintners celebrates its 75th Anniversary year.
You’ll ease into the weekend with a Vintner Welcome Party on Thursday evening, where you will experience Napa Valley’s relaxed, down-to-earth side. Your VIP passes the following day get you into the Napa Valley Barrel Auction, the largest barrel tasting and auction of its kind. Here you can taste wine straight out of the barrels (and bid on single cases of each), while also enjoying wine and food offerings from premium local restaurants. That evening you will be treated to an elegant Vintner Hosted Dinner, either at the home or private cellar of one of Napa Valley’s noted winery owners.
On Saturday it’s off to the grand finale: the Live Auction Celebration at Meadowood Napa Valley. There you can bid on some of Napa Valley’s finest wines, in addition to once-in-a-lifetime luxury lots. Dinner and dancing under the stars follows. You will depart the beautiful Napa Valley with amazing memories and a prized collection of large formats from some of Napa’s most celebrated wineries.
