Auction Napa Valley: The American Classic
filed under: Events,

amclassic_2.bmpSome of you will recall my pic-filled account of last year's fabulous Auction Napa Valley. This year I've been asked by the Napa Valley Vintners to tell you more about how you can attend this year's event (June 7-10), something I'm happy to do. This year the NVV has introduced a new four-day package called "The All-American Package" that includes attendance at all sorts of fun events throughout the weekend.

When you consider that tickets to the venerable Friday Festival (now called "Taste Napa Valley") - the place I snapped all the gorgeous pics of people, food, wine and general revelry last year - are already sold out, the All-American package starts to look even more attractive, as it gets you in there.

Here's an overview of the All-Am pass's perks:

* Vintner invitations to Auction Eve kick-off winery events

* Daytime activities, including:
o Taste Napa Valley
o Barrel Tasting and Auction
o E-Auction
o Live Auction Lot Exhibition

* Daytime hospitality event

* Farewell Reception
This package includes one bidding number for use at the Barrel and E-Auctions, and the catalogues for the Barrel and E-Auctions.

Cost - $1,000. Not exactly chump change, but if you've got the means and the hankering to spend four days perpetually surrounded by fabulous food, wine and entertainment, it's your oyster.
