  • 12 bottles of Napa Valley wine

  • 1 signed copy of the Joy of Cooking

Thirty-five years since its founding, Rombauer Vineyards is one of the most beloved and popular wineries in Napa Valley. This lot – one bottle each of the winery’s current Napa Valley releases - represents the breadth and depth of Rombauer Vineyards' Napa Valley vineyard holdings, along with its winemaking expertise.

Five varieties are represented: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel, each one sourced from estate or grower vineyards that are micro-farmed using NDVI aerial photo technology.

Featuring single-vineyard Chardonnays and Cabernet Sauvignons as well as reserve-level vineyard blends and dessert wines, this cellar-filling lot will provide the winning bidder with an in-depth look at an iconic winery at the height of its powers.

The lot also includes Rombauer’s finest Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon blend, Le Meilleur du Chai ("best of the cellar"), produced only in exceptional vintages in extremely limited quantities.

The winning bidder will also receive a signed copy of the Joy of Cooking, the iconic cookbook originally penned by Irma Rombauer, great aunt of Rombauer founder Koerner Rombauer. The cookbook will be signed by current author Ethan Becker, as well as Koerner Rombauer and second-generation family member K.R. Rombauer III.
