At Auction Napa Valley, you are our guests for four days, and when you return home, it's with memories to last a lifetime and some of Napa Valley's finest wines.  But the magic is just beginning when the weekend winds down, as the proceeds from Auction Napa Valley go on to support scores of incredible non-profit programs.  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 non-profits: Auction Napa Valley has given $90 million in proceeds to date.  We warmly invite you to join us for some amazing festivities this June in celebration of our 30th Auction Napa Valley
