SommFoundation & Napa Valley Vintners are looking to secure a professional volunteer sommelier team for Napa Valley’s leading charity wine event, Auction Napa Valley.
Sommelier Volunteer Duties
- Shift commitment: Saturday, June 1st from 2:30 – 10:00 p.m.
- Deliver wine to tables and pour wine for guests
- Attend to any guest beverage needs during live auction & dinner (wine, water, etc.)
Recognition for Volunteers
Lunch and Dinner will be provided for volunteers on Saturday night. NVV will recognize volunteers on the Auction Napa Valley website. Sommeliers will also be given one ticket to Auction Napa Valley’s Friday barrel auction and marketplace event so that they have an opportunity to explore and taste Napa Valley wines as our guest; this is a $500 value. ***One Magnum of rare Napa wine will be awarded to the volunteer providing the best service, as judged by Master Sommelier and SommFoundation Chairman, Jay James.
About the Auction
Your assistance will not only help to raise funds for the Napa Valley community, but also for future sommeliers who will receive scholarships through SommFoundation. The Napa Valley Vintners will make a generous donation to SommFoundation in exchange for volunteer sommelier services at Auction Napa Valley.
Since the Auction’s inception, the NVV has invested $185 million in Napa County nonprofit organizations through Auction Napa Valley proceeds. Each year, proceeds help 100,000 clients of more than 25 Napa County nonprofits, from American Canyon to Calistoga. Learn more about Auction Napa Valley at www.auctionnapavalley.org
