The winning bidders on this amazing lot will experience the very best in food, music and wine. You’ll have exclusive VIP access to BottleRock, Napa’s unique lifestyle festival, along with reservations at the best Valley restaurants and five days of behind-the-scenes glimpses into the lives of performers and vintners.

You will fly private in a mid-size cabin aircraft via VistaJet to your home base, the incomparable Auberge de Soleil in Rutherford, known as “the quintessential Napa Valley adult getaway.” Founded in 1981 by French restaurateur Claude Rouas, it was Napa’s first ultra-luxury hotel and contained the area’s first true fine dining restaurant. Nestled on a hillside amid 33 acres of heritage olive and oak trees, the hotel’s contemporary rooms and suites blend relaxed sophistication with understated elegance.

The three-day BottleRock Napa Valley will take place during Memorial Day weekend, with five music stages and a range of food and wine offerings. While the lineup hasn’t been finalized yet, the 2021 Festival featured over 90 acts including The Highwomen, Guns N’ Roses, Foo Fighters, Miley Cyrus, Mavis Staples, Run the Jewels, Megan Thee Stallion, Cage the Elephant, Black Pumas, Maren Morris and Brandi Carlile.

With your Platinum passes, you’ll experience BottleRock like a true VIP. For starters, you’ll have easy access to the festival through an exclusive Platinum entrance. You’ll enjoy the Platinum Lounge with select dishes prepared by renowned chefs, along with artisanal cocktails, craft beer and wines from luxury producers such as Amuse Bouche, Coup de Foudre and Krug. You’ll have on-stage and front-row viewing areas where you can be face to face with some of the world’s top musicians. The Platinum pass provides the ultimate luxury festival experience.

When you’re not hanging out with rock stars, you’ll be dining with Valerie Boyd and Jeff Gargiulo, the husband-and-wife team of Gargiulo Vineyards, at some of America’s finest restaurants, including lunch at Bistro Don Giovanni and dinner at the celebrated The French Laundry in Yountville. Owned and operated by chef Thomas Keller, The French Laundry has received the ultimate accolade of Three Michelin Stars and is one of the hardest restaurant tables in the country to book. Keller makes optimum use of the produce grown in the restaurant’s private garden, as well as the best of local farmers and foragers, to create elaborate tasting menus that fuse classic French cuisine techniques with innovative California style. The seemingly endless wine list combines Bordeaux’s great châteaux and Burgundy’s distinctive small domains with the gems and cult wines of California.

With BottleRock over, you’ll exchange the electricity of the stage for the serenity of Gargiulo Vineyards in Oakville. Valerie Boyd and Jeff Gargiulo dreamed of owning their own winery from the early 1980s, when the couple first traveled to Napa to visit Valerie’s cousins, iconic vintners Belle and Barney Rhodes. They realized that dream in 1992 when they purchased their first Oakville vineyard, Money Road Ranch, followed by 575 OVX seven years later. Jeff’s background in farming allowed him to realize that great wine started with the best land and the finest grapes.

The Gargiulo portfolio consists of vineyard-designated Cabernet Sauvignon and blends from the two estate vineyards, as well as a Sangiovese-dominated “Super Oakville” blend called Aprile. The wines have garnered raves from critics and consumers alike. You’ll have a private tasting at Gargiulo Vineyards, in addition to a dinner party hosted by Morgan Stanley and attended by a BottleRock performer.

You will take home a selection of 2018 Large Format bottles from the Gargiulo collection, 2018 being one of the top vintages in the last 20 years. Don’t miss the opportunity to have this extraordinary vintage in your cellar.

This remarkable lot gives you a unique, behind the scenes glimpse of the world of contemporary music, along with world-class dining and a visit to one of Napa’s most sought-after boutique wineries.

If your toes are tapping and your mouth is watering, it’s time to bid high!
