Some exciting events are set to kick off in February for those interested in learning more about (and possibly purchasing) the exceptional wines of California’s Napa Valley. These include an auction featuring exclusive winery cellar only lots, and educational seminars featuring some of Napa’s top winemaking personalities.

Napa Library Wine Auction

The Napa Valley Vintners has brought together a stunning collection of nearly 100 exclusive library lots direct from winery cellars for its inaugural Direct from the Cellar: Napa Valley Library Wine Auction. The auction showcases Napa Valley’s excellence in winemaking and the spirit of collaboration that Napa is so well known for. Powered by Zachys, one of the foremost wine auction houses, bidding will open on Thursday, February 11 and close via live online auction from Zachys in New York City on Saturday, February 20 at 3:00 p.m. PT.  Link to Zachy’s website: 

All proceeds from the Napa Valley Library Wine Auction benefit programs to promote, protect and enhance Napa Valley.
