Sondra Barrett is wonderfully generous. She wanted to contribute wine from her personal collection, as well as copies of her book, but was not able to work out shipping. She was able to contribute three copies of her beautiful book of wine photography, Wine’s Hidden Beauty. Retail value is $45.00 each, and we will auction them one at a time.
“As a winemaker for more than 50 years, I’ve always felt that making wine is much like raising children: You have to love and guide them and transmit to them the richness of your spirit. Now . . .“Wine’s Hidden Beauty” presents dramatic proof of what I’ve longed believed, but could only feel: wine has a secret life and inner beauty that transcends its chemical components. Dr. Barrett’s portraits of wine are a wonderful addition to our understanding of the art, science and spirit of winemaking.” –Miljenko “Mike” Grgich, winemaker/founder Grgich Hills Estate.
Opening bid is $25.00. Minimum bid increment $5.00.
[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.]
