Liquid Assets – Turning Wine into Art

Turn wines in your cellar into a tax donation, or add some special wines to your collection, all while supporting art, history and environmental education in our community. Napa Valley Museum’s “Liquid Assets” campaign invites discriminating wine collectors to bid on wonderful wines – and donate their excess wines – to sustain the Napa Valley’s own world-class art and history museum. With the help of some of the best wine auction houses and experts around, these donated bottles will be auctioned and proceeds (net of selling costs) distributed to our nonprofit programs.

Is your cellar empty? We are currently auctioning the contents of a donor’s wine cellar through Please BID NOW!

This auction has already generated $19,500 in sales – you’ll find some bargains too!
(Current auction continues until lots are sold; the Liquid Assets campaign is ongoing)

Through “Liquid Assets” you can:
  • Donate bottles with “Reserve Values” (what they’ve previously sold for on an auction’s site) of at least $20 per-bottle. Average per-bottle “hammer” (final sales price) is $100-$120. Donate either a few bottles or an entire cellar.
  • Receive a donation receipt from the Museum for wine donated. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law (please consult your tax advisor for more information about potential tax deductibility of wine donations).
  • Enjoy knowing that proceeds will benefit Napa Valley Museum, a 501c3 nonprofit, presenting exceptional exhibitions and educational programs about art, history and the environment, and preserving 15,000 items in our permanent collection evidencing the history, geology, and cultural legacy of our region.
Why let your wines gather dust in your cellar when these “liquid assets” can fund the cultural enrichment of our community?
Plus – it’s a great excuse to buy more wine! 
Help us turn the artistry of winemaking into art on our walls.
