The race is on! Barbara Banke, chairman of Jackson Family Wines, is as passionate about horses as she is about wine. As proprietor of the famed Stonestreet Farms and a co-owner of many of America’s top thoroughbreds and former Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby runners – including Curlin, Rachel Alexandra, Carpe Diem, Good Magic and Dreaming of Julia – Barbara is an avid racing enthusiast.

Two lucky couples will spend the weekend with Barbara at the Kentucky Oaks and the 145th Kentucky Derby, the granddaddy of all horse races, on May 3 and 4, 2019. During the weekend, you’ll get a front row seat to the so-called “two greatest minutes in sports” from your seats on “Millionaire’s Row” and receive an exclusive invitation to Barbara’s private Derby Party at the beautiful Stonestreet Farms in Lexington.

You will stay at the brand new luxurious Omni Louisville Hotel in downtown Louisville, where you will enjoy dinners at prestigious restaurants and relish a send-off brunch on the lawn at Stonestreet Farms on your final day in Kentucky.

Waiting at the finish line for our winning couples is an exceptional collection of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Gran Moraine Winery and Zena Crown Vineyard. Named for the glacier-borne rocks that traveled hundreds of miles to land in the vineyards, Gran Moraine is a winery estate located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA in the Willamette Valley. The diversity of sun exposures, elevations, rootstocks and clones in the estate’s vineyards translate into a varied lineup of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Rosé of Pinot Noir. Gran Moraine winemaker Shane Moore creates vibrant, racy wines with a full spectrum of flavor that capture the best of Yamhill-Carlton.

Twenty miles north as the crow flies, Shane also crafts wines for Zena Crown Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills. Since its third leaf, Zena Crown Vineyard has been subject to multiple interpretations and became a sought-after, single-vineyard designate for top producers in the region, including Beaux Frères, Soter and Penner-Ash. With the 2013 harvest, Zena Crown Vineyard emerged as a true Oregon domaine, producing four Pinot Noir wines – one for each season, to capture the vineyard’s changing moods and expressions.

Gran Moraine Winery and Zena Crown Vineyard are proud to offer this one-of-a-kind auction lot combining the finest in horse racing with the finest in Oregon winemaking.

And…they’re off! Will you join them?
