2/2/2010 - St Helena, CA--The Napa Valley Vintners (NVV) announces that Premiere Napa Valley, the wine industry's hottest ticket for wine retailers, wholesalers, restaurateurs and media, has sold out. More than three weeks before the renowned barrel tasting and trade auction convenes, the trade association is happy to report that more than 500 trade and media are confirmed to attend.
"This event in Napa Valley is the highlight of the season. It's like homecoming week for our best customers, a time for making new and seeing long-time friends," said Jeff McBride of Stag's Leap Wine Cellars and PNV 2010 chairman. "I don't know anyone who doesn't love this gathering."
But beyond the parties, the tasting and the auction that raises money for the trade association's promotion and protection endeavors of the Napa Valley appellation, are the wines. "Premiere Napa Valley is a collection of one-of-a-kind wines crafted specifically for this event--and the wines are purchased by savvy wine sellers to offer the world's finest and most unique wines to their customers. No top wine cellar would be complete without at least a few wines from Premiere Napa Valley," said NVV Board President Bruce Cakebread of Cakebread Cellars.
Wine collectors can access the list of wine retailers and restaurants from across the country who sell these unique wines, and find out how they can purchase previous years' offerings by visiting www.napavintners.com.
