No Wineland Revolt
It appears there will be no revolt among vintners in Napa Valley as this blog speculated in an earlier post
According to an article by Alan Goldfarb in the St. Helena Star, Napa Valley Vintners Board of Directors unanimously approved a significant change in the way the Napa Valley Auction (Now called : “Auction Napa Valley”) will operate.
The per couple cost will triple to more than $7000. In addition, the auction will be cut from the usual 7 hours to about 2 hours. This means that far fewer vintners will be able to have a lot in the auction.
