FROM NAPA VALLEY TO THE CANDIAN ROCKIES
Spottswoode is very excited to partner with the magnificent Post Hotel & Spa in Lake Louise, Canada in celebration of Auction Napa Valley 2014! The winning bidder will enhance his or her cellar with some rare bottles of our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon from our private cellar, and six of you will spend time with Mary Novak and Beth Novak Milliken at the Spottswoode Estate in St. Helena, and then with brothers George and Andre Schwarz, the proprietors of the Post Hotel & Spa, in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.
The winning bidder will take home five vintages of the Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon, in 750ml, magnum and double magnum format, so as to follow their progress in these different-sized bottles. The 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 vintages will be a welcome addition to your cellar and will bring you years of drinking pleasure!
Mary and Beth then invite your group of six to the Spottswoode Estate, the birthplace of these special wines, for a spectacular dinner to be created by Post Hotel Executive Chef, Hans Sauter. Hans has many years of experience working with our wines, as they have been a part of the Post Hotel’s extensive, amazing and award-winning wine list for many years. George & Rosalie Schwarz will join us for this meal, which will be prepared to pair beautifully with the Spottswoode wines.
Finally, the winning bidder (a total of six guests) will enjoy an incredible three-night getaway at the Relais & Châteaux Post Hotel in the season of your choice, depending on when you prefer to experience the stunning Canadian Rockies! Upon arrival in Calgary your needs will be taken care of in their entirety, from transportation to and from the airport to accommodations to meals (some paired with Spottswoode wines) to spa treatments to special experiences, which might include dog sledding, or fly fishing, or hiking on special trails, or a personal tour of the Lake Louise ski area with Andre, if skiing is your passion – the sky is truly the limit in this incredible alpine paradise! Brothers George and Andre Schwarz have established the Post Hotel as among the top resorts in Canada, and their intimate knowledge of the area will offer you an insider’s view of this amazing property and setting. Beth Novak Milliken will plan to join you at the Post and to provide special wines for some of these meals – but you can rest assured that George will draw from his cellar, which is filled with rare and phenomenal wines, to enhance these dinners, as well.
The Novak and Schwarz families are honored to offer this lot at Auction Napa Valley – we look forward to having you join us for what promise to be some amazing experiences, both here in Napa Valley and in the Canadian Rockies!
