5 bottles of Napa Valley wine
Custom-made Swiss VCANTER® cradle for 18-liter bottle with trolley and carrying case
A quarter century ago, Bryant Family Vineyard released its first Cabernet Sauvignon from the breathtaking hillside vineyard on Pritchard Hill. Perched above picturesque Lake Hennessey at a 900-foot elevation, the steepness, undulating shape, light and ventilation make the estate one of the most dynamic sites in the world.
The 2016 vintage marks the 25th anniversary release of Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. To commemorate this milestone, we have cultivated an extraordinary lot destined to take center stage in your cellar and on your table. The winning bidder will acquire five bottles of the highly acclaimed 2016 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon in a multiple format presentation. Leading the lineup is a rare 18-liter bottle never-before produced by the estate.
One of only three Melchiors made, this 18-liter bottle is distinctively etched to memorialize the 25th anniversary release. Accompanying the Melchoir are four additional bottles, ranging from a 375ml bottle to a 3-liter bottle, allowing the winning bidder to select the ideal bottle for your specific occasion. Indeed the 2016 vintage Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has been described as “majestic…polished and utterly impeccable.”
Propelled by Bettina Bryant’s admiration for Swiss design and precision, this lot also includes a stunning custom-made VCANTER® decanting cradle, carrying case and display trolley, designed by renowned Swiss designer Carmelo De Giorgio. Crafted in Switzerland, this contemporary decanting system reflects inimitable Swiss precision in both form and function, rendering an impressive display for the 18-liter bottle.
