Auction Napa Valley 2014 kicks off

As a newbie to Auction Napa Valley I'm excited for the four-day party to start. I'll probably be doing more wine drinking than actual bidding, but I hear even spectating the bidding process can be a rush. It's not every day a bottle of wine goes for $500,000. Hey, it's for a great cause!

Since 1981, the auctions have raised more than $120 million for local healthcare and education charities. Last year broke the record with $16.9 million raised making it the nation's highest earning charity wine auction.

In partnership with the Napa Valley Vintners, also the auction's host, Spiriterra Vineyards is happy to contribute our wines to a premium artisanal cheese and wine auction lot. Bidding has already begun online where you can find over 150 unique Napa Valley packages. The e-auction ends at 12pm on Sunday, so get your bid in now!
