Feb 2, 2017
(NVV) - Tickets are now available for the 37th annual Auction Napa Valley, the American Wine Classic. Hosted by the Napa Valley Vintners (NVV) nonprofit trade association to raise funds for Napa Valley community health and children’s education nonprofits, this year’s Auction Napa Valley takes place June 1 to 4. Details, including ticket package options, can be found at the newly redesigned auctionnapavalley.org website.
"Our family has deep roots in Napa Valley and we are honored to be part of creating a memorable experience for this year’s Auction Napa Valley guests," said Roman Coppola, noted filmmaker, screenwriter and producer. "We are inspired by how many lives are touched each year by Auction Napa Valley proceeds and look forward to collaborating with the Napa Valley vintner community to help ensure a healthy future for our neighbors."
Coppola family members will be directing the Auction events that come together to form four days of the best of Napa Valley’s wine, food, scenic beauty and hospitality:
- Thursday evening: Vintner Welcome Parties showcasing Napa Valley’s relaxed, down-to-earth side.
- Friday: The Napa Valley Barrel Auction to be held in the caves at the Coppola’s historic Inglenook estate, where guests have the unique experience of tasting and bidding on 100 different wines directly from the barrel. New this year will be pavilions created outdoors on the estate grounds featuring wines made from Napa Valley’s top grape varieties paired with complementary food from some of the Coppola’s favorite Napa Valley restaurants.
- Friday evening: Vintner-Hosted Dinners in intimate settings with noted Napa Valley winery owners opening their homes and private cellars for elegant dinners crafted by some of the country’s most regarded chefs.
- Saturday morning: Vintner-Hosted Al Fresco Activities such as cooking with Francis Coppola and bicycling and vineyard hikes with noted vintners as restorative ways to start the day.
- Saturday afternoon and evening: The crescendo of the weekend, the Live Auction Celebration at Meadowood Napa Valley. This is the big show under the big tent where bidders vie for Napa Valley’s finest wines, far-flung adventures and treasures of the rarest kind. Once the last gavel falls, guests will enjoy an Italian-inspired dinner designed by Francis Coppola and friends. At the after-party, guests will dance the night away to a soon-to-be announced musical headliner.
- Sunday morning: Bringing the weekend to a close, a Farewell Brunch at Charles Krug.
