Wine Auction for Haitian Relief

Wine Auction for Haitian Relief

Andrew Hodson of Veritas Vineyards and the Guild are hosting the areas first (or at least most interesting) Wine Auction. All of the wines for this auction are being generously donated by people in the Albemarle area. All of the proceeds from this auction will be given to the relief fund in Haiti.

This is a win-win event. You go home with some great wine and the money you paid for it goes to a great cause. We are accepting wine donations to be auctioned for this evening but already have quite an impressive line up including:

  • 2000 Lynch Bages (case)
  • 1995 Ducru Beaucaillou (case)
  • 2004 Schild Estate Shiraz Barossa Valley (3 btls.)
  • 2005 Mollydooker Shiraz The Boxer (3 btls.)
  • 2003 Marquis Philips Shiraz 9 (6 btls.)
  • 2000 Chateau Canon – St Emilion (1 btl.)
  • 2000 Chateau Greysac – Medoc (1 btl.)
  • 2000 Chateau Haut-Bages Liberal – Pauillac) (1 btl.)
  • 2000 Chateau Frontenil – Fronsac (1 btl.)
  • 2000 Chateau Bellefont Belcier – St Emilion (1 btl.)
  • 2000 Chateau Calon-Segur – St Estephe (1 btl.)
  • 1993 Ridge Lytton Springs Zinfandel (1 btl.)
  • 1993 Ridge Geyserville Zinfandel (1 btl.)
  • and many more coming.

The solid cases will probably be broken up and sold in 3 or 4 bottle lots, but the prices you will pay for these wines will be unreasonably below current value and so I suggest anyone looking to get into some of these great wines sign up quickly. We will keep everyone updated on the wines that will be available for bidding.

I believe we are allowing a BYOB portion of the event so that folks can bring out a bottle of their favorite wine and share it with other guild members. This will also give us plenty to drink while we are enjoying the food.

DATE: Sunday, February 28th,
TIME: Doors open at 6pm and the auction itself will begin at 7pm.
LOCATION: Veritas Vineyards
TICKETS: $10.00 per person

Purchase your tickets through us here at the Guild or at the door. Simply e-mail in your request and we can charge your ticket on your next wine order.

Hors d’oeuvres will be provided by Veritas (and let me just say that I had my wedding there and the food is incredible).

Bring your friends. Anyone is welcome.

RSVP soon, this will be another fantastic event.

    If you have not been out to Veritas for a wine event than you need to come to this. It is one of the most beautiful and relaxed environments to drink wine.
