So let’s say that, by some evil stroke of fate, you are NOT at the Veuve Clicquot in New York this weekend, nor in London at the Mint Polo in the Park, nor in Ibiza. It’s not too late to get busy and bid at Auction Napa Valley. One of our favorite packages is the Blackbird/Chopard package which will put you right in the middle of things in 2012. What makes us Happy? Diamonds and doing good!!!

About Blackbird Vineyards
Founded in 2003 by Michael Polenske, Blackbird Vineyards is an artisanal producer of Pomerol-inspired wines from the Napa Valley. Planted in 1997, the estate vineyard is located in the heart of the Oak Knoll District—a region appreciated for its moderate climate and deep, gravelly soils. The vineyard‘s valley floor topography presents optimum growing conditions for Winemakers Aaron Pott and Sarah Gott to produce elegantly styled, appropriately balanced red wines that offer short- and long-term cellaring potential. Limited quantities are available through an allocated mailing list direct from the winery and in the finer restaurants and hotels around the world. Visit Blackbird and become a fan on Facebook.
About Auction Napa Valley
Since 1981, members of the Napa Valley Vintners and the Napa Valley community have rallied together to offer, each June, an experience unlike any other. What started as a small event has grown into one of the world’s most renowned wine auctions—with more than 350 wineries and 550 community volunteers now taking par—yet remains true to its goal of raising funds for healthcare, housing and youth services nonprofits: Auction Napa Valley has given $90 million in proceeds to date.www.napavintners.com
