St. Helena, CA – The Napa Valley Vintners (NVV) nonprofit trade association is offering underwriting opportunities to wine industry suppliers for Auction Napa Valley. Packaging and equipment companies, coopers, bottle manufacturers, cork suppliers, label designers, banks, insurance brokers and other wine industry-affiliated businesses can join the Auction Napa Valley Circle of Partners, which benefits community health and children’s education nonprofits in Napa County.

Now in its 37th year, Auction Napa Valley is the world’s most celebrated charity wine event, taking place June 1-4, 2017. Since inception, it has been a collaborative effort between NVV member wineries, community volunteers and local businesses. The Circle of Partners program allows the broader wine industry to come together in support of this philanthropic effort.
