3/21/2024 – Saint Helena, CA – Beginning Monday, March 25, tickets will go on sale for Collective Napa Valley Auction Weekend: the ultimate wine and food experience. This year Auction Napa Valley returns as the spirit of the live auction event, alongside the fan-favorite Napa Valley Barrel Auction. In addition to these two main events, guests will also experience intimate dinners and winery experiences. Proceeds from the weekend’s festivities will benefit youth mental health initiatives in Napa Valley. 

Since 1981, the first weekend in June has always marked a time for wine lovers to gather in Napa Valley for an annual celebration of wine, food and doing good. This year, Auction Napa Valley returns in its rightful place as the name of the live auction.  

As a top destination for food and wine, Auction Weekend is the ultimate way to enjoy the best of Napa Valley while making a difference in the lives of youth. We’re really excited about this year’s celebration. We’re honoring our roots by creating a new version of Auction Napa Valley as part of the weekend. We’re thrilled to see it revitalized,” said Cyril Chappellet, chairman of the board of directors for the Napa Valley Vintners and CEO and chairman of Chappellet Vineyard. 

Guests will experience every piece of the mosaic that is Napa Valley: spectacular hospitality, delicious food and extraordinary wines from acclaimed winemakers, all taking place among the stunning natural beauty of the region. 

“This year we’re excited to breathe new life into both the main auction and the beloved barrel auction. The loss of the live auction’s traditional home allowed us to reinvent these events. We’re reconceiving each event in dynamic and fresh ways; especially the live auction that will be more intimate than in past years, yet still full of energy and excitement,” said Jeff Smith, founder and CEO of Hourglass and chair of the live auction.
