Lieb Family Cellars wines have been lauded by well-respected critics including Eric Asimov, Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher, and Howard Goldberg.
“For $18.99 I got a bottle of superb 2007 pinot blanc, made by Lieb Family Cellars on the North Fork of Long Island. What a delicious wine! It was dry and creamy with a captivating texture and a mere 12.5 percent alcohol.” Eric Asimov, The Pour, May 20, 2009.
“By the way, some U.S. wineries make good Pinot Blanc, too, and not just in California. Lieb Cellars on New York’s Long Island makes a good one, for instance.” Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher, Wall Street Journal, May 23, 2009.
“Lieb’s 2005 chardonnay ($19.99), buttery and rich, is understated.” Howard Goldberg, New York Times.
Opening bid is $90.00. Minimum bid increment $10.00.
[How it works- Each auction lot will get its own post. As soon as it gets its own post, the auction is live. Once a bit of time has passed, and people really know about Wine for Haiti, lots will go live AND HOT. Every item will got “hot” if bidding reaches retail value. Once hot, each lot is on a 24-hour cycle, ending at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time. If a lot goes a full 24 hours, from 10:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., without a new bid, the last bid in the comments wins. If we get into a bidding war, with the same people going back and forth, one day at a time, we will post something in the comments of that Auction Lot and schedule a time to bid to the death, at a time mutually agreeable to everybody involved.]
