Neighbors helping neighbors from American Canyon to Calistoga
Since 1981, the Napa Valley Vintners has invested more than $150 million in local charitable causes through Auction Napa Valley.
Funds go to Napa County nonprofit organizations with an emphasis on community health and children’s education - what’s raised here, stays here.
Some tangible examples of the Auction’s impact on the community:
o More than 100,000 clients of local nonprofits were helped by Auction funding in 2014.
o Every child in Napa County has access to health insurance, thanks to the Community Health Initiative (NVV is the largest private funder of this program in Napa County).
o One in six residents use OLE Health as their primary care provider, the largest recipient of Auction funding and Napa County’s only nonprofit health clinic.
o Nearly 1,500 children and families were helped in the second year of our Napa Valley Early Learning Initiative, established in 2013. NVV has committed up to $5 million in Auction funding to this initiative to help close the academic achievement gap in our community.
The must attend charity food and wine event, for savvy wine lovers worldwide
2016 is the 36th annual event taking place June 2-5. Tickets go on sale February 1, 2016.
Auction Napa Valley is The American Wine Classic and is recognized as the world’s most celebrated charity wine event.
Taking place in the beautiful Napa Valley, the iconic scenery and intimate time spent with vintners in their home sets Auction Napa Valley apart from other charity wine events - it is unlike any other.
As it has been since the Auction’s inception, Meadowood Napa Valley is the host of Saturday’s Live Auction Celebration; Robert Mondavi Winery is the site for Friday’s Napa Valley Barrel Auction.
A collaborative effort by winery members of the Napa Valley Vintners (NVV) and the community
More than 80% of the NVV’s 530 member wineries are expected to participate by donating to a lot, hosting a party and/or providing serving wine for the weekend - vintners not only generously donate their wine and hospitality, but many are also successful bidders.
Napa Valley Vintners are committed to creating quality wines and ensuring stewardship of Napa Valley’s land and community; Auction Napa Valley exemplifies the spirit of cultivating excellence on which the NVV was founded in 1944.
Nearly 500 local volunteers help with the Auction.
From restaurants to hotels to transportation companies and more, dozens of local businesses support the Auction annually.
This year’s Auction will celebrate the generations that contribute to the wine community’s long tradition of nurturing health and wellbeing in Napa County
The 2016 honorary chairs is Agustin F. Huneeus, following in the footsteps of his father, who chaired the event in 1996.
Napa Valley’s extraordinary wines, evocative scenery, culinary wonders, legendary hospitality and nurturing generosity will delight our guests and sustain our community for years to come.
95% of Napa Valley’s wineries are family owned and their contributions through Auction Napa Valley support Napa County families in need.
