#LakeCountyRising Charity Wine Auction

Attendees will enjoy light hors d’oeuvres prepared by students at the Culinary Institute of America and have an opportunity to taste Lake County wines in a walk-around tasting. Seating is limited and advance registration is required. Tickets are $150 and may be purchased online at www.lakecountyrising.org/charity-auction

Community members and wine industry guests can make a difference as they raise their paddles to bid during a live auction with the nation’s leading wine auctioneer, Fritz Hatton. Napa Valley Vintners, Lake County Winery Association and other wine region associations around the state are putting together memorable auction lots in support of this important event. In addition to live auction items, attendees will be able to bid on silent auction wine lots and experiences from wine regions across California.

Already lined up is a live auction personal barrel lot valued at $58,000. Beckstoffer Vineyards will provide a half ton of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the 2016 harvest of the Georges III Heritage Vineyard in Rutherford to the expert winemaking team at Sinegal Estate who will custom crush, craft, barrel, age, bottle, and label the finished wine specifically for the successful bidder.

The event is presented by #Lake County Rising, a collaborative fundraising effort of the Lake Country Winegrape Commission, Lake County Winery Association and Lake County Wine Alliance.
