For the first time in its 25 year history,  the wineries of one of the world's most renowned wine regions will celebrate "The Carneros Experience" with a unique wine trail passport through its highways and backroads just north of the  San Francisco Bay Area.   An  OnLine Auction will feature "The Carneros Experience" - lots that offer holiday gifts, shared experiences among family and friends and special wines from the '07 and '08 vintages lauded by wine industry professionals.
 
The region recently was awarded 94 points for its '07 Pinot Noir vintage by the Wine Spectator. Carneros is widely considered one of the world's great  Pinot Noir and Chardonnay regions.   In recent years, Syrah, Merlot and a variety of other wines have joined Carneros Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in excellence.   
 
Among the featured OnLine Auction items are:  a family "Haycation" at Crazy Flower Farms,  backroads bicycling with Clos Du Val winemaker John Clews, star-gazing and tasting of celestial wines, sailing on the San Francisco Bay, a golf outing at a (very) private Carneros golf club, vineyard tours of the Sangicomo Family's Home Ranch featuring a BBQ and vineyard-designate library wines from some of the region's most prestigious wineries.  Join us for little bit of Carneros -- America's Unique Appellation.  Our OnLine Auction is fun, accessible and offers something for everyone!
 
Beneficiaries are the Carneros Land Stewardship Foundation and Cru Carneros, the educational and training program sponsored by the Carneros Wine Alliance for early stage wine and food professionals.
