Napa Valley’s “OTHER” Auction
"Premier Napa Valley" is an auction held mainly for the trade. Restaurateurs, retailers and distributors gather at CIA Greystone and bid on barrels of one-of-kind wines. Wineries duel for the highest price paid for their wines. What kind of wines?
2003 Astrale e Terra Single Vineyard Atlas Peak Cabernet
Cakebread 2003 Merlot/Cabernet Franc Blend
Domain Chandon 2003 Block 173 Pinot Noir
Fife 2003 Spring Mountain Syrah, Petite Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon Blend
2003 Hartwell "Sunshine" Cab/Merlot Blend
Basically, these are wines you can’t get anywhere else.
It a fun event mainly for the pre-auction tasting. Vintners and owners are on hand behind their barrels, pouring the wines that will be auctioned.
The event raises money for the Napa Valley Vintners Association
