This week is Premiere Napa Valley, and hundreds of wine professionals from around the world have converged in the valley to attend the annual grand tasting and futures auction to be held at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone.
India Wine Napa Valley Vintners and its 490-member wineries have partnered to create this weeklong event, which includes a Saturday afternoon auction of 225 of the rarest wines in the industry.
Wine In India What makes the event so unique, according to Patsy McGaughy, communications director at NVV, is the creativity that is unleashed in the production of the handmade wines. “These wines, each created only once by the individual wineries, are offered as futures — at the auction — only to individual restaurateurs and wine retailers so they can offer the most unique and rarest wines made from America’s leading appellation to their most discerning customers,” she said. And “rarity” is the operative word because these wines will be auctioned in lots no smaller than 60 bottles and no larger than 240.

A recent report by the Sweden-based whistle blower Swedwatch finds that Finland's favourite wines are being produced under questionable circumstances in foreign vineyards. Local NGOs are calling on the state-owned alcohol monopoly Alko to improve its buying practices.
Free Wine Testing Nearly half of the wines consumed in Finland are produced in vineyards in Chile, Argentina and South Africa. A report by the Swedish human rights watchdog Swedwatch last year revealed that vineyards in these countries routinely commit human rights abuses: in some cases workers are underpaid, unions discouraged, women and immigrant workers are exploited and living conditions are sub-standard.
