From the private cellars of Tony’s Off Third Wine Shop, selected by owner and wine director Sukie Honeycutt and stored with passion in Naples, Florida.

Like most noted chefs, Tony Ridgway puts nearly as much emphasis on wine as he does on food—and few wines are as versatile with food as Pinot Noir. The wine shop, Tony’s Off Third, carries over 75 of them. This remarkable lot is a collection of six of wine director Sukie Honeycutt’s favorite and most special small production California Pinot Noirs. The best news of all is that these six wines come from stellar recent vintages and will age well for years to come.

The real question is, where do you start? Perhaps with the Raen Royal St. Robert Cuvée, named by Dante and Carlo Mondavi in honor of their grandfather Robert. Or Roar Gary’s Vineyard, a low-production gem from Santa Lucia Highlands. Or Hartford Court Arrendell Vineyard from the coldest spot in Russian River’s Green Valley, where grapes are sometimes harvested as late as November.

As impressive as these wines are, you haven’t even gotten to the big names yet. Every year, enthusiasts of domestic Pinot Noir fight to obtain even a single bottle of Patz & Hall Pisoni, Peter Michael Ma Danseuse or Sea Smoke Ten. Dig deep, bid generously, and this embarrassment of riches could be yours.

INSIDER’S INFO: Wine must be picked up at the Naples Winter Wine Festival office or shipped at the winning bidder’s expense.
