  • 1 bottle of Napa Valley wiine

  • 1 handblown Alpha Decanter from Gabriel-Glas

  • 6 Gold Edition handblown wine glasses from Gabriel-Glas

Get ready to blaze through life with this lot from famed racecar driver Danica Patrick, the first woman to win a major league, open-wheel race in a North American series.

The winner of this dazzling lot will receive a signed magnum of 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from Danica’s new vineyard, Somnium, which means “to dream” in Latin. This coveted wine comes from the Somnium vineyard straight up the switchbacks of Howell Mountain, just below the appellation divide at 1,300 feet

The winner will also receive a crystal decanter and 6 Gold Edition wine glasses from Gabriel-Glas (the mastermind creation of notable Swiss/German wine critic, René Gabriel), that are elegantly shaped to fully express the wine they deliver - the ultimate way to enjoy this sublime large format wine.

“I thought owning my own winery was something I could only ever dream about," said Danica, "but in 2011 it became a reality when vineyard development began on my 22-acre Howell Mountain property, Somnium. I can't tell you how many times I have signed an autograph for a child and added the note, 'dream big!' It is a life motto. It’s how I think, how I live and what I preach! My dreams never stop, they just continue to evolve.”

Danica Patrick on Somnium: "People have these experiences they will never forget, and the wines they drink become an association with the lifestyle and environment there. That’s what drinking wine is all about - relaxing, conversation and spending time together over amazing food.”
