Silicon Valley's Premier Wine Auction

Meet the 2018 Pouring Vintners

During the Wine Tasting hour, you will have the opportunity to speak with the winemakers and vintners as they personally serve you some of their finest red and white wines.

Jean-Noel Fourmeaux, VGS Chateau Potelle

2018 Special Guest Speaker

Jean-Noel Fourmeaux is a 35 years veteran of the wine industry in Napa Valley, yet, his winery, VGS Chateau Potelle, is known only by those who search for wines that have dimension, subtlety and definitive character. Their assertiveness is all in the nuances and their successive layers, not in the overripeness of fruit. “To make 'mainstream' wines has never been my calling,” proclaims Fourmeaux.

Sent to the Napa Valley by the French government in 1980 “to spy” for 6 months, this son of Bordeaux sent a telegram home “Looks good, I stay”. Fourmeaux was seduced by the exuberance and generosity of the Napa Valley fruit.

Past Live Auction Lots (2018)

Each year features wine lots carefully selected by wine connoisseur, Philippe Dietz, Head of School for the International School of the Peninsula, as well as trips and experiences that cannot be found anywhere else.

Here is a sneak peek at the offerings available this year.
