If you’re into food and wine, the Auction Napa Valley is pretty much the center of the universe. Comprised of four days of incredible wine and food, this spectacular event invites attendees to enjoy the cool cellars and hospitality of renowned vintners. In addition, there are dozens of parties to choose from, each hosted by a vintner. More than 250 auction lots, yours for the bidding – from a single case of wine, to trips offering experiences not available anywhere else. You can also taste the barrel auction lots, participate in the e-auction, and attend the main event – a live auction held at the Meadowood resort.

Although there is plenty of wine, food and fun to be had, the primary goal of the event is to raise funds for local charitable activities. In fact, over the last 30 years, $90 million have been given to charities in the Napa Valley, to assist healthcare, education and low-income housing non-profit organizations. The genesis for the auction came from Robert Mondavi, who wanted to give back to the community, as well as celebrate the quality of wines from Napa Valley. Since its inception in 1981, this Auction has embodied the personality of Napa Valley and provided the model for modern charity wine auctions around the world.

Join us as we talk with vintners and attendees during the 2010 event. You’ll get just a small sampling of all the fun, food, and festivities that go along with attending the Auction Napa Valley.

Arguably the benchmark in charitable wine auctions, the Auction Napa Valley is held annually in (where else?) Napa Valley. Established by a group of Napa Valley vintners in 1981, ANV has given over $70 million dollars over its 28 years for healthcare, youth service and low-income housing charities in Napa County.

Join us as we talk with vintners and attendees and they share their fond recollections about the iconic Robert Mondavi, and his innumerable contributions to wine and to the Napa Valley.

Arguably the benchmark in charitable wine auctions, the Auction Napa Valley is held annually in (where else?) Napa Valley. Established by a group of Napa Valley vintners in 1981, ANV has given over $70 million dollars over its 28 years for healthcare, youth service and low-income housing charities in Napa County. The GrapeRadio crew received an invitation to attend this stellar event, and we were not disappointed.

Organized each year by the Napa Valley Vintners (NVV), the event runs over a three-day period, usually in June. Consisting of a wine & food extravaganza, several auctions (e-auctions, live auctions and barrel auctions), and plenty of vintner-hosted activities, it is a spectacular event. In 2008, as the final gavel fell, a total of 44 Live Lots, 128 Barrel Lots and 87 E-Lots that offered extraordinary collections of wine, vintner-hosted events and travel adventures donated by the organization’s many wineries had raised more than $10.35 million.

Join us as we talk with vintners, celebrities (Oprah!), and attendees about the sights, sounds, foods, wines, and overall excitement that make the Auction Napa Valley such a special event.
