Napa Valley is the most renowned wine region in the US. The local vintners have not only made a mark in producing world-class Cabernets but are also known for their generosity which in previous years was evident at the annual Auction Napa Valley (ANV). The region’s flagship fundraiser, presented by Napa Valley Vintners (NVV), raises astronomical sums over a weekend and draws global attention as bidders fly into Northern California from all over the world.
