Last year, Napa Valley Vintners (NVV) announced the transition from their traditional annual auction event to a new format called Collective Napa Valley – a new endeavor that brings people together to enjoy Napa Valley wines while raising funds for the good of its community. Collective Napa Valley is an innovative, year-round engagement and philanthropy program. Throughout the year the Collective Napa Valley community will have access to a variety of programs and events, providing opportunities to engage with vintners and explore the region online and in person.
NVV has just released the seasonal offerings for 2022! Those who join Collective Napa Valley may participate in three seasonal offerings for the year. In addition, members of Collective Napa Valley will receive special offers to acquire wines and enjoy Napa Valley hospitality throughout the year.
Spring Offering: Welcome to the Collective, March 24, 2022
As budbreak signals the start of the new growing season, the Collective community will come together for a virtual Napa Valley tasting and experience. A portfolio of specially selected wines will be available for tasting during a live 60-minute broadcast.
Summer Offering: Futures Barrel Auction Weekend, June 2-4, 2022
Inspired by the Barrel Auction at Auction Napa Valley, guests will spend the weekend at vintner-hosted wine events and experiences including the main event at Raymond Vineyards tasting wines directly from the barrel. All proceeds from the event go toward funding programs that benefit the children of Napa Valley.
Fall Offering: Vintage Celebration, November 3-4, 2022
The Collective community will experience the magic of the harvest season when they join in a celebration of the vintage (previously open only to winemakers). To complete the weekend, the Vintage Celebration Dinner and Live Auction will feature an intimate evening of wines and custom experiences for the upcoming year.
Core to the Collective Napa Valley giving model will be continuing NVV’s legacy of caring for the community and investing in Napa Valley’s most important needs. NVV has donated more than $200 million to community non-profits over the last 40 years, focusing on strategic initiatives for health care and youth development. NVV’s giving touches the lives of more than 100,000 people annually.
