Wine Spectator: Auction Napa Valley Raises $15.8 MillionJune 10, 2015
Auction Napa Valley, the four-day event by Napa Valley Vintners (NVV) that is now in its 35th year, raised $15.8 million for local nonprofits focused on community health and children’s education.The live bidding on June 6 pulled in $13.3 million with a tempting selection of lots of rare wine and luxury experiences.
While the total is lower than last year’s record-breaking $18.7 million and the $16.9 million total from 2013, it still makes this the nation’s top charity wine sale, surpassing the $12.3 million raised by the Naples Winter Wine Festival earlier this year. Since 1981, NVV has given more than $145 million to charities. Wine Spectator has the full story.
