No matter where you happen to call home, if you are a wine lover, you will want to check out the article in Haute Living San Francisco on Auction Napa Valley, which takes place next week. The most successful charity wine auction in the world, Auction Napa Valley is a four-day, 30-mile-long party that celebrates the region’s bounty while raising money for area programs that support affordable housing, health care, and more, which is why we titled the piece “The Soul of Napa Valley.”
