Napa Valley Barrel Auction

11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Charles Krug

Mix and mingle inside the newly renovated, historic Redwood Cellar with 100 Napa Valley winemakers, taste coveted wine samples directly from the barrel and be part of the spirited bidding on these limited offering wines. The top ten bidders on each lot will secure a future release case of the wine they discovered and can now call their own.

Outside on the tree-shaded grounds, the Marketplace extravaganza features dozens of wineries pouring their current release wines served alongside treats from the region’s most acclaimed restaurants and food purveyors. This is also your chance to preview the extraordinary lots that will be offered in the Live Auction on Saturday.

Live Auction Celebration

Noon – 8 p.m.
Meadowood Napa Valley

The centerpiece of Auction Napa Valley...stroll the lush fairway taking in the grand white-tented grounds before enjoying a casual al fresco lunch by some of Napa Valley’s most noted chefs. Then it’s on to the big top for the big show, with the thrill of bidding on the only-in-your-dreams-until-now lots of Napa Valley wine and wine-related experiences, while sipping wines with the people who make them. As the bidding ends and the evening begins, guests meander to dinner by Meadowood’s Chef Christopher Kostow followed by music and dancing under the stars.
