Lot 112 | Happily Ever After with Detert Family Vineyards and Harumph
Featured on live auction at 7:51 PM. This lot closes at 8:00 pm.
Bid high on this lot to experience a VIP tasting at Detert Family Vineyards for six guests, lunch at Brasswood in Napa and more!
Once upon a time, a young chap by the name of Scotti Stark moved to a magical place called Napa Valley. He had big dreams of starting a winery. Along the way, he met Tom Garrett, a local gent who would become one of his treasured friends. Tom’s family was a well-known grape grower in the region, with roots that date back to the California Gold Rush. After many successful decades selling their excellent grapes to Robert Mondavi, Tom, his brother John, and their partner Bill Cover made their first Detert commercial vintage Cabernet Sauvignon in 2000, bottling it in 2002.
Scotti started up Revana Family Winery in 2004, with fairy godmother Heidi Barrett as the head winemaker. As luck would have it, Tom served as the GM and assistant winemaker! It was fate, and maybe a little bit of magic, that brought these two wine legends together.
Many years later, Scotti founded Harumph and grew to be a Boutique Wine Wizard. He made some great friends in a faraway land called Nashville (hey that’s us!) who were very thirsty. Tom also became the head winemaker at Dakota Shy with Scotti’s other best pal, Todd Newman.
One day, Scotti and Tom were having lunch, and Scotti was able to convince his friend to share his magical Detert wines with his thirsty friends in Nashville! They decided to join forces to put together an auction lot that is quite the fairytale.
Tom cordially invites your group of six Detert’s incredible winery for a VIP tasting of some of their finest bottlings. In addition, the winner will take home four bottles of their Cabernet Franc which comes from stocks that were replanted in 1979 using budwood from the original 1949 Cabernet Franc planting, now known as the Detert Clone of Cabernet Franc.
Scotti will escort all six lucky guests to a lunch at Brasswood (YUM) in Napa! To seal the deal, he’s including a magnum of Θ$#!π Cabernet 2017 and a double magnum of Harumph Cabernet 2017. Θ$#!π is Harumph’s premier label, and only SIX magnums and 42 cases were produced! The Harumph is not lacking in rarity either, only FOUR 3L’s were produced. In order to make this experience a true fairytale, Scotti is providing top tier concierge services by Stark Advantage.
Raise your paddles high and repeat after me: And they all lived happily ever after!
