Wine auction to benefit Haiti

  • Updated

David Honig, publisher of Palate Press: The Online Wine Magazine, has organized a Wine for Haiti auction to raise money for the American Red Cross Haiti Relief project. “All 

auction purchases are paid directly to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief project, assuring buyers their money is properly used,” he noted. ”The most impressive part of the story is the amazing generosity of the wine world, from individuals pulling bottles from cellars to wineries, many in Napa and Sonoma, contributing magnificent, one-of-a-kind, bottles … The catalogue is growing daily and includes lots like a 3.0 liter bottle of 2004 Shafer Vineyards Hillside Select, retail value $1,032 and a Balbach, Warsteiner Klostergarten Trockenbeerenauslese – 1976, available only one place on line for $600.”

He added, “The effort has also gone international, with a partner site in Australia, where the Aussies are set on raising more money than their American counterparts.”
