Napa Valley is the crown jewel of California wine country, and for good reason. With a plethora of vineyards and wineries, the picturesque region has been a mecca for wine lovers since being put on the map forty years ago. The splendor of Napa Valley is now heading to Hong Kong, thanks to a partnership between Christie’s and Napa Valley Vintners, a nonprofit trade association headquartered in Northern California.
The companies will join forces to sell premium Napa Valley wines at a November auction that will showcase the rarest collectible wines produced by Napa Valley Vintners members. Around 25 lots of 60 to 120 bottles will be available, offering Hong Kong locals the chance to purchase some of the best California wines on the market.
In the months leading up to the Hong Kong sale, Napa Valley Vintners will preview the wines to potential buyers in the area. A list of participating wineries and the auction date will be publicized soon. Proceeds from the auction will support wine efforts in the Napa Valley area. (christies.com; napavintners.com)
