The Napa Valley Vintners Welcomes You to the 36th Annual Auction Napa Valley
For generations, Napa Valley's vintners have cultivated a passion for fine winemaking in this exceptional place we call home. Once a year, during Auction Napa Valley, our home becomes yours.
It was 20 years ago that my father, Agustin Huneeus, gathered his fellow vintners for the 16th Napa Valley Wine Auction. I'm proud to follow in his footsteps by gathering vintners from his and my generations – and even from the next – to share with you the ultimate celebration of our beloved Napa Valley and the conviviality that magically happens when good times are coupled with good causes.
You'll join us at our wineries and cellars to share our extraordinary wines, crafted with the utmost care. Friends, old and new, will toast and dine at tables laid with garden flowers and expertly prepared food. Spectacular summer sunsets will showcase our vineyards and forested hillsides, drawing you in to their serene spell.
We know you'll be captivated by the thrill of the bid on wines and experiences otherwise unavailable. Hundreds of our winemakers will proudly pour their wines for you. Scores of talented chefs from near and far will transform carefully selected ingredients into transcendent fare.
Your presence and generosity during Auction Napa Valley live on through generations of individuals impacted by the funding you make possible. Your support provides the foundation for a child's success in school and in life, a family's access to health care and a doorway to otherwise unavailable opportunities. Thanks to bidders like you, Auction Napa Valley has given nearly $160 million to causes like these.
Welcome, bienvenido. We look forward to this time with you and thank you for the legacy of lives made healthy and whole by your presence.
