RARE & FINE WINE & LIFESTYLE LIVE AUCTION LOTS
2016 CENTRAL COAST WINE CLASSIC
SATURDAY, AUGUST 13
BELLA VISTA, THE NESBITT ESTATE
Ladies & Gentlemen, the 31st Annual Rare & Fine Wine & Lifestyle Auction is imminent, and the anticipation is building, as we are presenting the most diverse catalog in our history, 52 Wine & Lifestyle offerings that cover an amazing array of subjects, from California to New York City to French Wine Country (Bordeaux, the Rhone, Burgundy & Champagne) to exotic locations such as Bhutan and China with top-of-the-line arrangements. The fine wines include the absolute cream of the crop from California, France, Italy and Australia, among others. There have never been Napa Valley lots such as the ones presented this year. There is even the introduction of a newly conceived Pinot Noir that is a collaboration of Jim Clendenen of Au Bon Climat, artist Yuroz, who has a painting in the Vatican in Rome, and Wine Classic Founder & Chairman Archie McLaren. The Iconic Vintners, such our long-time friend Richard Sanford and the late Donn Chappellet, are visible with their remarkable wines throughout. The art works are vibrantly beautiful and include shining examples of art in its most engaging form, from various genres of painting to photography. Etched and Hand-Painted Large Format Artist Wine Bottles abound.
On occasion, you will witness an extemporaneous Auction Lot offering. It is rumored that the ones that might emerge include an Australia experience and a stunning painting from artist Yuroz, as well as a visit to a comprehensive Porsche Collection and an audiophiles haven that features a sound system worth roughly $750,000, both in Reno, Nevada.
By the way, the Auction preview features as an aesthetic embellishment, an exotic automobile display that includes rare and unique Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren automobiles, as well as a gorgeous brand-new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51 that later will be Live auctioned, to enjoy as you sip and savor your pre-auction Champagne, Champagne & Caviar Symposium or Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Symposium, each comprehensively educational and edifying.
If you are unable to attend the festivities, please contact Archie McLaren personally to submit absentee bids, including if you need to depart the Auction prior to its exciting conclusion which features an entire Wine Cellar of over 700 bottles! You are also welcome to contact Archie at (805) 878-3124 or [email protected]
