The famous Auction Napa Valley hosted by the non-profit Napa Valley Vintners trade association is expanding its bidder base by adding an online auction component to the annual event. More than 150 lots ranging from small offerings of wine to large collections of wine ideal for cellar building will be offered for people from around the world to bid on. Already the world’s most successful charity wine auction and in its 31st year, the auction to date has raised nearly $97 million to scores of non-profit programs.
“We look forward to bringing these great wines and wine experiences to Napa Valley wine lovers around the world. We have put together some incredible offerings in more than 150 lots. It’s a never-before-seen, really amazing global outreach that brings together the best of Napa Valley–and all for great causes that support healthcare, youth services and affordable housing non-profit programs” said Andy Schweiger of Schweiger Vineyards, who is leading the online component of Auction Napa Valley this year.
Lots are available for preview now at www.napavintners.com/anv with bidding beginning on Sunday, May 29 at 8am and continuing until Sunday, June 5, at 6pm Pacific Daylight Time, when lots will close and winning bidders will be notified.
