Former racecar driver Danica Patrick is all about the wine these days.
The 14th-annual Carnivale du Vin charity wine auction in New Orleans brought chefs and vintners together to help kids in need, and Aaron Rodgers girlfriend was on hand to aution off something very special.
The Danica’s Exclusive Napa Valley lot offered a weekend in Napa for six couples, hosted by retired race-car driver and Napa vintner Danica Patrick.
As bidding ramped up, Patrick stood up and offered to throw in one of her old racing suits.
The lot brought in $32,000.
Here was the lot offering below:
Begin your exclusive journey through Napa as you’re welcomed to Yountville’s Amizetta Farmhouse, your home away from home which is luxuriously appointed with six bedrooms and bathrooms and a splendid balcony.
Then, travel up Howell Mountain for a catered lunch with your vintner host at Amizetta Estate. Later, the brothers of Frias Family Vineyard, the first bonded Mexican-American winery in Napa, offer a private tasting at their north Napa tasting room.
They’ll then treat you to a delicious dining experience at Napa Valley’s quintessential Press Restaurant. Sip on their award-winning cabernets or recently released rosés while dining on Press’s modern steakhouse cuisine.
The next morning, continue your tour of Napa as you arrive at Gamble Family Vineyards, legendary Napa farmers since 1916, for a private tour and tasting. Head to meet with Somnium proprietor Danica Patrick for a round of golf or croquet at the Meadowood Resort. Put your game face on, as Danica’s golf/croquet game may be as strong as her driving skills!
Cool down as Danica accompanies you to an enticing lunch prepared by Meadowood Grill as you try Somnium’s expertly crafted cabernets, masterfully blended by winemaker Aaron Pott.
During this trip, you’ll fall in love with Napa Valley just as Danica did over a decade ago.
If Aaron Rodgers was attending, I feel like the price would have at least doubled.
Just imagine having a couples weekend with Danica and Aaron.
And it’s all for a good cause.
