Lot Details

How does a Billionaire start the perfect evening? With Dom Perignon 1999 of course! Synonymous with decadence and the finest things in life, this is your perfect entry into an unforgettable evening of the crème de la crème.  With your first seated course, you will sip a 2014 Domain Ponsot Corton-Charlemagne, a vintage from this storied Domain that Wine Advocate labeled as “spellbinding.” Next up, enjoy glorious seafood with a yummy 2016 Lail Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Georgia.

Domaine Leroy you ask? Of course, a billionaire would only want to drink wines from the Queen of Burgundy. Antonio Galloni said it well when he described how some “shudder at the staggering prices Mme Bize-Leroy wines command in the market and a level of scarcity that means very few people ever have a chance to taste them. But everyone looks to see what she is doing in the vineyards. The reality is that Mme Bize-Leroy crafts wines unlike any others. Her reds are often spellbinding.”  Notice how that word keeps popping up in this description. You will have the chance to taste a true unicorn wine:  2009 Domaine Leroy Richebourg Grand Cru.

Next up, your tastebuds will soar with the iconic, cult cabernet collectors’ favorite Screaming Eagle 2009. Considered as one of the most inaccessible wineries in Napa, your winning bid gives you all access to enjoy this incredible wine.

Finally, you will end your billionaire wine journey with a delectable 2017 Inniskillin Okanagan Valley Vidal Icewine.

Each course of this wine journey will be thoughtfully and perfectly paired with delicious dishes from Chef Erin Seay-Taylor, owner and proprietor of Ashland City Farms. With all of her experience in fine dining, Chef will be heavy hitting for this billionaire dinner.

Three lucky couples will get to Buy-A-Spot and experience this unbelievable lineup in the lovely home of Susan and Bill Joy. Opportunities like these arise once in a blue moon, so raise your paddle ASAP!
