Publisher Joe Wehinger Finds Out Rarest Screaming Eagle vertical bottles to be auctioned at 2019 Naples Winter Wine Festival

The Naples Children & Education Foundation (NCEF) has announced that on Saturday, January 26th, 2019, one of the rarest and most collectible verticals of California wine will be up for auction at the 19th annual Naples Winter Wine Festival (NWWF) at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, FL. Lot #7 features (8) 3-liter bottles of Screaming Eagle’s very first Cabernet Sauvignon bottlings, vintages 1992-1999. Screaming Eagle, the wine that kick-started California’s Cult Cabernet phenomenon and transformed the world of wine, remains its scarcest and most collectible. Large format bottles of Screaming Eagle have never been offered for sale by the winery and this vertical is the only known set in existence.

“Given the anticipated interest from collectors and aficionados from around the world, we are pleased to announce that arrangements have been made to accept phone bids,” says 2019 Festival Co-Chair Tom Koehn.

Since its first bottling in 1992, Screaming Eagle achieved perfect and near-perfect reviews every year during the Nineties. Each wine featured in Lot #7 was produced while founder Jean Phillips owned the winery and was produced by her along with famed winemaker, Heidi Barrett. The allure of Napa Cult Cabernet has driven collectors worldwide to get their hands on a single bottle of Screaming Eagle, let alone a vertical of this capacity. This rare opportunity to bid on this collection without doubt will be historic in the wine world.

Interested bidders may contact info@napleswinefestival.com to apply for bidding access. Pre-qualified bidders may arrange to bid by phone in real time.
