Lot Details

If you’ve never heard of RARECAT Wines, let us introduce you to your new favorite bubbles.

RARECAT Wines produces ultra-premium, limited-production wines in four best-in-class regions: Napa Valley, Champagne, Bordeaux, and Russian River.

RARECAT was founded in 2009 by long-time vintner Sharon Harris. She grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area but was not raised by family in the wine business. However, she recalls her parents enjoying the art of entertaining including a vivid memory of their flaming vodka watermelon drinks.

When deciding upon a name for the wine Sharon focused on the word “rare” to indicate the type of wine she was trying to make. RARECAT is a woman of distinctive or rare beauty. The coin on the RARECAT label was modeled after an ancient Carthage coin (300-350BC). A goddess, Tanit was worshiped as the principal deity of Carthage. The cat pays homage to mountain lions living in California.

This case of Rosé Extra Brut Champagne is as delicious as it is beautiful. It’s the perfect way to kick off the evening. Sharon will be joining us, so get ready to raise your paddles to what is bound to be a fabulous and RARE Pairings! Cheers!
