Amount (in $U.S.) paid per bottle for the barrel of Rudd Estate “Leslie’s Block” Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2018—the highest grossing lot at the Premiere Napa Valley (PNV) Wine Auction last weekend. The lot was dedicated to the late Leslie Rudd whose highly regarded winery in Oakville in Napa Valley is now run by his daughter Samantha. Gregor Greber from Napa Wine Ltd. in Zürich, Switzerland made the winning bid saying, “Leslie Rudd was one of the first people who inspired us.” The wines offered at PNV are created exclusively for the auction.
