Joseph Phelps Vineyards Raises $490,000 for Local Charities During Auction Napa Valley

The Napa Valley Vintners’ (NVV) 33rd annual Auction Napa Valley was one for the record books, achieving $16.9 million in overall fundraising for healthcare and youth education nonprofits in Napa County. The American Wine Classic’s record-breaking results exceeded the previous record of $10.5 million raised in 2005 by more than 60 percent, reaffirming Auction Napa  Valley’s position as the world’s most celebrated charity wine event.
We are completely overwhelmed by the outpouring of generosity by the bidders this year. The Joseph Phelps Vineyards 40th Anniversary Extravaganza live auction lot raised a staggering $450,000 and our Barrel Auction and E-Auction lots were among the top earning lots.
