2/11/2021 – St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador Helena, CA – The Napa Valley Library Wine Auction opened today in anticipation of a flood of bids from wine lovers from around the world. The amazing collection of nearly 100 exclusive wine lots has been preserved by Napa Valley Vintners for the first edition of Direct from the Cellar : Napa Valley Library Wine Auction. The auction, which runs from 11 to 20. February showcases the excellence of Napa Valley winemaking.

Buyers will be delighted to discover six decades of exceptional Napa Valley wine at auction.  Those who love Napa Valley wines can see for themselves the age-old virtues and quality that Napa Valley stands for with its incredible wine offerings, said Stacey Dolan Capitani, vice president of marketing at Napa Valley Vintners.

The range includes vintages from 1964 onwards and nearly 400 large format bottles, including rarely sold formats such as a 12-litre Balthazar, two 9-litre Salmanazars, 17 6-litre Imperials and nine 5-litre Jeroboams. Lotteries are hosted by some of the biggest names in Napa Valley wine, including BOND, Harlan, Screaming Eagle, Opus One, Silver Oak, Chateau Montelena, Robert Mondavi Winery and many others.

The Napa Valley Library’s Zachys-based wine auction took place on Thursday, Nov. 11. Feb. and ends on Saturday, the 20th. February, at 3 p.m. PST.

The range of wines to be auctioned is an excellent opportunity for collectors to invest in rare and precious wines from America’s most prestigious wine region. We are excited to partner with Napa Valley Vintners to bring attention to this collection, said Jeff Zachariah, president of Zachys.

While the auction is open, enthusiasts and collectors are invited to join Antonio Galloni (Vinous) for Napa Valley Sessions with the winemakers. From eleven o’clock. In February, Galloni will host five panel discussions, each on a different topic, including exploring Napa Valley’s American Viticultural Areas (AVAs), discovering unexpected Napa Valley grape varieties, and what inspires the next generation of winemakers from some of Napa Valley’s best-known producers.

All proceeds from the Napa Valley Library Wine Auction go to a charitable program to promote, protect and enhance the Napa Valley.

In addition to the library’s first wine auction, Napa Valley Vintners moved its first Napa Valley wine auction from first to fifth in June 2021 and met with winemakers and volunteers after the Napa Valley wine auction in its previous form to consider how they can use world-class Napa Valley wines to care for their communities in the future.
