Arista Winery, Limerick Lane Cellars, Mauritson Wines
Support Sonoma County Fire Relief and First Responders Needs! This lot not only exemplifies the heart, passion, dedication and spirit of the 2020 Sonoma Wine Auction Chairs Clay Mauritson, Mark McWilliams, Jake Bilbro and their families, but it also serves the dual purpose of providing much-needed fire support and relief to those in Sonoma County who have been impacted by this year’s wildfires.
Funds raised by the Sonoma Rising 2020 “Kids Krewe Cuvée” lot will have a direct impact on the short and long term recovery efforts of those who were affected by wildfires and aid first responders in Sonoma County. With the belief in the heart, strength and resilience of the community and the ability to work together to endure and recover from the challenges that have affected so many. Together, everyone will rise!
It truly is a family affair! At the core of this very special lot are the friends since birth, children of the auction chairs Cruz Bilbro, Brady Mauritson and Jake McWilliams. The wine will be labeled with Cruz Bilbro’s label “Too’sbabor Wines”—originally created as a partnership with Emeril Lagasse Foundation, the first vintage raised over $500,000.
This 2019 vintage red wine, varietal to be determined by the children, of Sonoma Rising 2020 “Kids Krewe Cuvée” will be created from finished wines, crafted by each auction chair and blended, bottled and curated with their sons at their sides every step on the way. A master creation, this unique wine belongs in the cellars of wine enthusiasts and collectors who appreciate its delicious presentation, unrivaled provenance and impactful mission.
An once‐in-a-lifetime alliance of the 2020 Sonoma County Wine Auction Chairs and their families, this lot is a vivid example of how the wine community in Sonoma County has once again responded to challenges, and the needs of those in the community in the wake of the fires.
For those buyers who purchase three bottles or more, there is time to celebrate! You are invited to the “Kids Krewe Cuvée” Barn Party, which will be held in beautiful Sonoma County and hosted by the auction chairs and their winemaking children.
