Damien Barton Sartorius, Owner and General Manager of Barton Family Wines, is part of the 10th generation in the Barton wine dynasty that began in 1725, when Thomas Barton, a native of Ireland, landed on the quays of Bordeaux. Along with his sister Mélanie Barton Sartorius they are proud to be the next generation of this tight-knit family business.
While l’Eté du Vin features outstanding wines during the reception, we do not provide wine during dinner itself. Most of our patrons wish to bring their own cellar favorites to share with their table. We invite you to Bring Your Own Wine for dinner. Volunteers will be on hand to assist in placing your dinner wine on your table during the reception.
l’Eté du Vin offers Live, Super Silent, and Silent Auctions filled with fine wines, exquisite trips, luxury items, and exclusive dinners, tastings, and parties. The Silent Auction opened at noon on Tuesday, July 25 and all the bidding takes place via mobile devices. Registered guests who provided a mobile phone number received a text message containing a personal bidding link to the Silent Auction when it opened. The excitement of the Live Auction takes place on Saturday, July 29, featuring one of the nation’s most accomplished wine auctioneers, Fritz Hatton.
