A Tribute to California

Item #: 2
This lot benefits: Napa Valley Vintners Association and Sonoma Valley Vintners & Growers Alliance

Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation is so thankful for the generosity of our friends in the wine industry. We hope to show our gratitude by paying tribute to those affected by the 2017 wildfires. Today, we break from tradition and offer this special lot.


Six couples will enjoy a spectacular, multi-course wine dinner prepared by James Beard award-winning chef, John Currence, hosted by Lamar and Tracy Conerly with Jim and Peggy Adams in the Adams’ home on June 23, 2018. Begin your evening prepping your palate with a glass of Iron Horse Russian Cuvee, a rare wine originally created for the historic Reagan- Gorbachev Summit that ultimately ended the Cold War.

Paired with dinner will be an etched, autographed 6L of 2002 Staglin Family Estate Cabernet (RP 95), Kistler Sonoma Mountain McCrea Vineyard Chardonnay, Aldenalli Pinot Noir, and a terrific Martinelli Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch Water Trough Vineyard; a perfect blend of Napa and Sonoma’s best grape varietals.

Guests will have the opportunity take home a variety of highly rated, powerhouse wines including two separate vintages of Quilceda Creek, each with perfect 100 point ratings by Robert Parker.
