Exclusive VIP tasting and lunch at Cardinale for two (2) couples

Cardinale, located in Napa Valley’s world-renowned Oakville District, crafts a single Cabernet Sauvignon from each vintage. The wine is a limited-production blend from Napa Valley’s most celebrated mountain appellations. Each of our esteemed mountain vineyards creates a beautiful note unique to their location, but the composition they create together results in a remarkable symphony of flavor and texture. Mountain terroir is essential to Cardinale’s character. While the rocky soils, steep aspects and exposed conditions are among the most challenging in California, they also produce the most structured and complex wines. Every bottle reveals the artistry of Winemaker Christopher Carpenter. In the bottle, Cardinale is sophisticated, powerful, and a true expression of Napa Valley.

The winning bidder will receive a luxurious wine country experience at the hilltop Cardinale estate in the world-renowned Oakville Distract of Napa Valley. Two couples will enjoy an exclusive VIP tasting with lunch accompanied by stunning views of the Napa Valley. The winner will also take home one (magnum each of Cardinale Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2012, 2014, and 2016 vintages, receiving 98, 98, and 97 points respectively from Robert Parker Wine Advocate.
