Napa Valley Barrel Auction
High spirits, great wine, superb food, good company... and a little friendly competition
all come together at this sought-after Napa Valley Barrel Auction.
Take a sneak peek at future releases when the Barrel Auction gets underway. Mingle with winery
owners and winemakers as they offer samples directly from the barrel.
Like what you tasted? Then add your bid to the board. If you're one of the top ten bidders for
that lot, look forward to having a case of that wine sent to your home when it's ready for release.
This is your chance to dream about, and get a very close look at, the must-see-to-believe
Live Auction lots up for bid at Saturday's Auction Celebration. Each one is a treasure, a wonder.
Please don't miss the Live Lot Preview.
Next, stroll through the outdoor marketplace where wineries participating in the E-Auction
will pour their top releases for you. This is your chance to ask questions about the wines from the
people who made them before you place your bid on any of the lots available. Dozens of the
region's most acclaimed Napa Valley restaurants and food purveyors will be on hand with
culinary gems for you to enjoy.
A memorable highlight will be meeting some of the recipients whose lives have been changed
by Auction donations. You will also meet some of the heroes of the organizations dedicated
to bringing hope and success to those in need.
