Most people like to indulge in a nice bottle of wine (or two) while on vacation, but for those attending the Auction Napa Valley in two weeks, those bottles very well may cost $100,000.
The weekend attracts about 2,000 guests who spend unbelievable amounts of money on wine at auction to raise money for local Napa charities. Last year’s event raised $15.8 million; 2014’s raised a record-breaking $18.7 million. In total, the event has raised $145 million over its history.
According to Bloomberg, some of the best lots to look out for are the Robert Mondavi Winery 50th anniversary Lot 9, which provides you with the opportunity to host 50 guests for dinner at Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry and enjoy 50 bottles of Mondavi wine; Tusk Estates and Amuse Bouche Winery’s Lot 15 provides a “priceless” Golden State Warrior’s diamond championship ring, VIP court side seats and dinner for four at the winery.
Interested in attending? A ticket to Saturday’s live auction and dinner costs $2,000, while a VIP ticket to the entire weekend costs $4,000.
