A Week in Tuscany
Our MCs this year are Dario Sattui and his fiancé Irina Yartseva. Among their duties will be to auction a week at Dario’s Tuscan property, Monastero di Coriano, a fully restored Augustian monestary built more than 1,000 years ago. This is an opportunity normally available only to wine club members at Castello di Amorosa. The high bidders will stay in a two-bedroom, one large bath apartment with a large fireplace, large, fully-equipped kitchen and dining area. Guests will enjoy the Monastery’s swimming pool, pond, outdoor oven for making bread and pizza, as well as an outdoor kitchen and pergola for al fresco dining. The apartment is completely updated, tastefully furnished with antiques, and includes free wi-fi. Many day-trip destinations possible from this location- Florence, Chianti Classico, Siena and many others, all within an hour’s drive. Information about the property can be found here: www.vsattui.com/visit/go-abroad-with-us/. Current Bid: $1200.
Wine Lover's Delight
Sir Peter Michael and the staff at Peter Michael Winery in historic Knight’s Valley have donated 6 bottles of their flagship wine, Les Pavots, a tasting and tour for 6 of the Peter Michael Winery estate, and a two-day stay for six at the “cabin” on the estate; again another opportunity usually available only to wine club members. Current Bid: $1200.
The Great Cal Mart Grab
Finally, repeating their last year’s donation, our friends at Cal Mart have offered another three-minute mad dash shopping spree through the store. The high bidder will not only be able to fill up to two shopping carts with produce, canned and packaged goods, meat and cheese, but will also be able to invite family and friends to the party to cheer on the lucky shopper. Current Bid: $500.
