ATTENTION OENOPHILES & SUPPORTERS OF BARNARD COLLEGE
Please pardon Moi while I interrupt Moi's regularly-scheduled programming to give Advance Warning to ye Oenophiles: as part of an auction to raise funds for scholarships to Barnard College, Galatea is donating the following item to an upcoming auction that will take place April 15-May 7, 2009 viz Charity Buzz. This special item is:
THE TRUE CALIFORNIA CULTS: THE BEST WINES FROM THE BEST YEAR
A bottle each of the 1997 Screaming Eagle, 1997 Harlan, 1997 Bryant Family, 1997 Colgin Herb Lamb Vineyard, 1997 Abreu Madrona Vineyard and 1997 Araujo Eisele Vineyard. Cellared impeccably since release. (All rated 100 or near 100 by wine guru Robert Parker).
If you're in the wine-know, you know that it is very difficult to get all of the above bottles in one package. So participate in the auction ... but be forewarned, too, that the highest online bid will just become the entry bid in the live auction during the actual Scholarship Gala & Auction dinner on April 29 at Gustavino's in New York City. So bid high for this special lot!
Barnard being so special, there are other special lots available, like Shepard Fairey's "Be the Change" Official Inauguration Poster. Check it out!
As much as over half of Barnard College's students receive scholarships -- I was one of them. I'm happy to be supportive...EDUCATION IS A GOOD THING!
