Premiere Napa Valley
February 19-20, 2016
The annual grand tasting and futures auction, held at The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, helps to fund our work to promote, protect and enhance the Napa Valley appellation.
At Premiere Napa Valley, wine sellers capture one-of-a-kind wines to offer in their shops, on their wine lists and to their most discerning customers. The professional peer-to-peer networking and relationship-building with more than 225 of Napa Valley's vintners is often likened to a homecoming for our most loyal ambassadors.

Auction Napa Valley
June 2-5, 2016
Each year brings a new magic to Auction Napa Valley. An intangible mingling of extraordinary Napa Valley wines, memorable meals from talented chefs, the beauty of our landscape at every turn, the music and design and, of course, the thrill of bidding on one-of-a-kind Napa Valley wines and experiences, all coming together in an original way each year since 1981.
The alchemy of Auction Napa Valley, however, lasts much longer than four days in June, with Auction proceeds changing lives for years and even lifetimes through funding for community health and youth education in Napa Valley.
2016 Sonoma Wine Country Weekend
September 2 - 4, 2016
The first thing you notice at Sonoma Wine Country Weekend is the decided lack of distance between yourself and the people who grow and make some of the world’s most amazing wine and food. For three delicious, decadent days, you’ll experience, up close and personal, Sonoma’s full bounty of flavors. Rub shoulders with winegrowers and makers from the pioneers to the rising stars. Offer your compliments to the chefs, both acclaimed and up-and-coming.
Sonoma Wine Country Weekend is Sonoma County’s signature, and largest, charity event, bringing together over 200 of Sonoma’s top winemakers and growers, along with a collection of the area’s best chefs. Jointly produced by the Sonoma County Vintners and the Sonoma Valley Vintners & Growers Foundation, all proceeds benefit local charities. Since its inception, Sonoma Wine Country Weekend has raised over $12 million for charities that benefit students, children, farm workers and people in need in Sonoma County communities.
