Appellation St. Helena had announced that it is turning its inaugural holiday wine experience into a fundraiser for the victims of the October wildfires.
It takes place on Wednesday, Nov. 8, from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Golden Gate Club in the Presidio in San Francisco. Tickets are $75, and $25 from each ticket sold will be donated to the relief efforts.
Consumers will meet winemaking teams and proprietors from 24 member wineries producing some of the best $50 wines made in the heart of Napa Valley.
“Many of these wines are available only on allocation or to wine club members,” said Stanley Harris, an wine collector. “Having the ability to taste these wines, some of which are well over $100 a bottle -- and potentially get on the winery’s allocation list -- is an exciting and rare opportunity.”
Wines from pioneering vineyards dating to the 1860s from wineries including Charles Krug, Pellet Estate, and Varozza, will be poured alongside contemporary producers such as Spottswoode, Corison and Alpha Omega.
