LOT 108 | Hey Wine Hipsters… Lombardi is Calling!
Featured on live auction at 7:20 pm. This lot closes at 7:30 pm.
Have you found yourself searching for unique wine producers? Are you a champion in word-of-mouth discoveries?
If the words “boutique wine” get you more excited than finding a new Netflix show, we’re here to satisfy your craving with an experience that rivals your passion for undiscovered juice.
In 2013, Tony and Christine Lombardi began a passion project that honors a rich family history of wine, food, and tradition. Together, with Winemaker Cabell Coursey, they craft small lots of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from some of the finest vineyards in the Sonoma Coast. Tony and his team have poured their blood, sweat, and tears into their wines (no, not literally). Just the mention of access to their incredible wines plus a hint of ‘not open to the public’ and ‘no official tasting room’ will make any ‘wine hipster’ jump at the chance to win this experience.
The winning bidder will be treated to a private tour and tasting at the exclusive Coursey Graves estate winery atop Bennett Mountain, where Lombardi Wines are made. Vintners Christine and Tony Lombardi will be your hosts, and they’ll send you home with a signed magnum of Lombardi Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir to boot.
If that isn’t exclusive enough, the amazing day concludes with a fanciful culinary experience at the critically acclaimed Valette, widely recognized as one of the best restaurants in Healdsburg. Chef/Proprietor, Dustin Valette will prepare a five-course VIP tasting menu perfectly paired with Lombardi wines.
Wine hipsters, now’s the time to place your bids (before everyone else)!
