Auction Napa Valley is the American Wine Classic. It is always extraordinary; filled with donors from around the globe who come to celebrate the spirit of Napa Valley while raising funds for local nonprofits to further enrich community health and children’s education. The E-Auction begins on Sunday, May 27th at noon and features roughly 200 lots, from vertical collections to unique Napa Valley experiences and beyond, ending on Sunday, June 3rd. The intimate entertainment begins on Thursday, May 31st with the Vintner Welcome Parties throughout the Valley, where exquisite wine and exemplary chefs gather to create a relaxing and welcoming retreat. Friday, June 1st entails a Napa Valley Barrel Auction at the very first winery, Charles Krug, and is followed with Vintner-Hosted Dinners, meals of perfection, where stories of art, architecture, music and winemaking histories interweave with laughter among friends. The star of the show begins Saturday with the Live Auction, where the staccato of paddles vying for unique, once-in-a-lifetime Auction Napa Valley lots is met with confetti, cheers, special bottles of Napa Valley wine and the promise of many unexpected treats and surprises throughout the day. As the day changes to evening, wander over to the linen-draped family-style tables with classic, soulful Italian fare meant for lingering conversations as stars come out and the caravan of  dessert trucks begin to offer sweet bites and the private concert commences. Continue the evening at the after party, located at The Charter Oak, and enjoy music, food, dancing, and delightful sips of wine to close out the experience.
