What to Wear

Auction Napa Valley style ranges from casual to dressy, depending on the activities you choose. Most events are Napa Valley casual/festive -- meaning fun, summery and colorful. Light materials for the warm days, a wrap or jacket for the cool evening and comfortable shoes are suggested. Don't forget a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen if you are out in the sun.

Weather

The weather in June in Napa Valley is fantastic. You can count on sunshine an average of 10 hours a day. If you are coming from outside California, you will probably be surprised to learn that June can often have periods of temperatures in the mid 90's. Regardless of how hot it is during the day, the temperature almost invariably cools down at night. These diurnal swings are an important part of our growing cycle of the grape. And a great reason for you to pack layers!

Average temperature:
Day: 86º F | 30º C
Night: 50º F | 10º C

How to Barrel Taste and Bid

Swirl, sip, savor…and bid! You could be the lucky winner of one case (or more) of wine from the 100 lots offered. Winemakers offer samples of still-aging wine directly from the barrel for you to taste. The top 10 bidders of each lot will take home a case of wine.
