imagesThe Napa Valley Vintners has announced that over 200 wines will be showcased at the Premiere Napa Valley barrel tasting and auction event on February 23, 2013.

Barrels of each of the wines will line the famous cask room at The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone holding one-of-a-kind blends, varietals or special vineyard lots made specifically for the event by Napa Valley’s top winemakers.

“We design the Premiere Napa Valley wines as a piece of art, unique and never to be replicated,” noted Denis Malbec, winemaker at Blankiet Estate.

Each year, the wineries and their winemakers begin with a blank canvas and create a wine that inspires them. Because these exact wines will never be offered for sale again, retailers, restaurateurs and collectors are eager to own the exclusive Premiere lots.
