Over 25 unique lots Help fund scholarships for local high schools

29. March 20, 2021 (Paso Robles, CA) – The Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance (PRWCA) today announced the launch of Paso Robles’ first-ever virtual auction. In this online auction, which will take place on Monday, May 10, begins and lasts until Sunday, May 16. During the May contests, more than 25 lots from more than 50 Paso Robles Country wineries will participate, including wineries, hotels, restaurants, travel companies and businesses that sell holiday supplies. The lots specially selected for the auction are exclusive packages that are not available at retail. Wineries offer not only wine, but also luxury accommodations in wine country, winemaker dinners at Paso’s finest restaurants, exploratory tours of high-end vineyards, and rare and select wines. Proceeds from Wine Country’s virtual auction benefit the Paso Robles Wine Country Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization that gives something back to the community, primarily through scholarships for college-bound youth. Go to https://pasowine.com/events/virtual-auction to view the lots.

The online auction will last a week and run from the 10th to the 16th. May, that’s before the traditional annual Paso Robles wine festival. With restrictions on large events and gatherings, this auction allows Paso Robles Wine Country to showcase the wine country lifestyle to customers and bidders from across the country. In such parties as A French Family Affair, the families of L’Aventure, Clos Solène and Benom gather for a dinner for six at Les Petites Canailles, an expensive, high-end French restaurant for gourmets. Another unique inter-brand experience in Paso Robles brings a group of eight to Sixmilebridge, where owner Jim Moroney invites guests to dine with winemaker Anthony Yount. The dinner also includes wines from other Anthony’s brands, including Denner Vineyards and Royal Nonesuch Farms.

There are also no prizes for the highest bidder, such as the complete set of the current edition (12 bottles) of Saxum wines, as well as two signed 1.5 litre magnums. Another hard-to-find lot is the Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon vintage series, which includes 2015 – 2019 vintages, as well as two signed large format bottles from 2017 and 2018.

Overnight stays range from three nights in a luxury house for six at Turley Wine Cellars to an equally luxurious stay for two at the new Geneseo Inn on Cass Winery’s 145-acre property. You stay, and more ultra cool experiences on the auction block are ready to be won. Visit https://pasowine.com/events/virtual-auction until the launch on Monday the 10th. May 2021, new lots will be added daily.

We are excited to bring you some incredibly rare offerings that are only available in the Paso Robles wine region. They were taken from personal cellars and paired with incredible experiences never seen before in our region! said Molly Scott, PRWCA Board Chair and Director of Grower Relations at JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery. Equally exciting is the new online auction format that allows Paso wine lovers around the world to participate in raising money that will be donated to our local community through our foundation.

This auction uses the Greater Giving online auction platform, which allows for paperless bidding. Bidders use a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer to bid on lots and can easily track lots by logging their activity without constantly returning to a board or bid form.

For the past 15 years, the Paso Robles Country Wine Alliance Foundation has supported the local community by providing high school scholarships. These scholarships help young people enrolled in college or vocational training get some extra money to ease the burden of tuition, supplies, travel, etc. while they plan for their future. The Paso Robles wine community takes pride in helping the next generation achieve their goals.

The Paso Robles Wine Country Virtual Auction begins on Monday the 10th. May, but the lots are currently filled online. Go to https://pasowine.com/events/virtual-auction to view the lots and come back every day. The inventory of unique and extraordinary experiences grows by the day, until the auction begins on the 10th. May. The auction ends on Sunday the 16th. May 2021 at midnight.
