Our 29th Instant Wine Cellar fund-raiser is fast approaching. The always popular wine cellar drawing and raffle baskets will be enhanced this year by a Silent Auction and a small Live Auction featuring a sausage-making class and dinner for 10 on the grounds of the lovely Canard Vineyard; and a deluxe tour, tasting, wine and cheese pairing for 10 and a threemagnum cabernet vertical collection from Castello di Amorosa.


Two Wine Cellar Grand Prizes are up for grabs this year, each a collection of 72 bottles of the finest wines the Napa Valley has to offer. Tickets are on sale now at the museum, $10.00 each or 5 tickets for $40.00 giving you one free chance to win. Need not be present to win. Tickets can also be purchased at the event or by mail by downloading an order form here.

A variety of our famous raffle baskets filled with prizes donated by generous local businesses, will be lined up waiting for a good home. You may find yourself winning hotel rooms, spa treatments, restaurant gift certificates, pottery, jewelry, wine, and more. Tickets for these are only $2 each and can be purchased at the event only.

For your wine tasting pleasure 6 Calistoga AVA wineries will be on hand to pour their finest selections. Delicious appetizers will be plentiful. Admission to the event, which includes wine tasting and appetizers is $5 each for Sharpsteen members and $20 each for nonmembers. Museum memberships will be available for sale at the door.

The Instant Wine Cellar is our only fund-raiser this year. Your generosity is not only appreciated, but very much needed. We thank you all for your constant support of the Sharpsteen Museum.

And thank you to the enthusiastic volunteers who have already come forward to help make the IWC a success. Help is still needed with raffle ticket advance sales; basket assembly; food preparation and event set-up and take-down.
