Join us from anywhere in the world to bid and be a part of Premiere Napa Valley in February 2023. We are once again working with Sotheby's to host the Premiere Napa Valley auction of one-of-a-kind unique wines and Vintage Perspective auction of mature wines direct from wineries’ cellars.

To begin the registration process you must complete your bidding registration with Sotheby’s first. After you complete the Sotheby’s bidding registration you will have access to the virtual and in person experiences offered for the best week in Napa Valley. As a remote bidder you are invited to a special educational opportunity with Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW to explore innovation and technology in the Napa Valley wine industry on Tuesday, February 21, and can explore this year’s wines by requesting up to 12 lot samples. In-person attendees are invited to join us in the valley starting Wednesday, February 22.

All proceeds from Premiere Napa Valley will fund programs to promote, protect and enhance Napa Valley, which is important to everyone commercially invested in Napa Valley wines.
