Wine for Haiti Lot 6 – Five Wine Books from UC Press SOLD Palate Press January 19, 2010 Extra Features, FCG, Wine Spotlight 9 Comments The University of California Press has generously contributed a selection of any five books in their catalogue to Wine for Haiti. Books range in price from $25 to $50, making the total value of this auction lot as much as $500.00. Lot 6 - University of California Press Amy Clearly, Senior Publicist for University of California Press, will ship free of charge to the winning bidder. Opening bid is $150.00. 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.] For more auction Wine for Haiti auction items, please see the Wine for Haiti Auction Catalogue. http://undertakingwine.com/ Michael Gorton, Jr. I open the bidding at $150.00 Teresa B.
