Premiere Napa Valley, the popular signature barrel tasting and auction for the wine trade, has sold out more than a month in advance. Hosted by Napa Valley Vintners, the event will take place Feb. 25 at The Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena.
Top restaurateurs, distributors, retailers and brokers from across the country, Japan, China, Canada and the United Kingdom will attend the event, chaired by Erle Martin and Michael Beaulac. Attendees can purchase the most unique wines in the world at Premiere Napa Valley, while networking and building relationships.
The funds raised at the auction will be used to further the goals of Napa Valley Vintners. The organization aims to promote, protect and enhance the Napa Valley and its wines through wine education, professional development programs, environmental initiatives and trademark work to protect against fraudulent use of the Napa name.
