You’re invited to the 34th annual Auction Napa Valley, the American Wine Classic.

June 7, 2014

This unique celebration of the special place we call Sweet Home Napa Valley is your chance to spend intimate time in the company of our vintners, savor our carefully crafted wines, experience the creative talents of our local chefs, procure unforgettable experiences, and share in our vision of doing something good for those with the greatest need. Wrap it all up in the sweeping beauty of our vineyard vistas and we promise something truly magical will take place.

The transformation of good times into good works is perhaps the most amazing aspect of the Auction, with more than $120 million donated to date to nonprofits in Napa County. Thanks to the generosity of our guests and bidders, every child in Napa County has access to health insurance; more than 25,000 residents are served annually by Community Health Clinic Ole; and our commitment to helping close the educational achievement gap in our community is closer to being achieved.

This year, for the first time, Auction Napa Valley will be co-chaired by two families, and we are honored to carry on the collaborative spirit that first drew a handful of vintners together 70 years ago, when the Napa Valley Vintners (NVV) was founded, and again in 1981, when the first Napa Valley Wine Auction was born.

Auction Napa Valley is a family affair: from the majority of participating wineries being family owned, to the families throughout Napa County that derive strength and support from Auction funding, to the extended family of friends that attend year after year, bidding high and often, and taking back to their homes special collections of our wines and intimate wine-related experiences, along with the evergreen effects their generosity sets into motion.

We are deeply rooted to the land here, and can’t wait to share both Napa Valley’s dynamic dazzle and relaxed down home sides with you this June. It’s going to be a great time...will you join us?
