Today marks the end of Auction Napa Valley 2009. The host organization, the Napa Valley Vintners (NVV), has just posted its usual press release detailing the event. The big news is how much the event raised this year.

In 2008, Auction Napa Valley raised a whopping $10.35 million for local charities. This year, the event raised $5.7 million–a drop of more than 44% (sounds a bit like my 401K). Overall, a $5.7 million take is quite good given the current economic circumstances.

According to NVV, the top lot of Friday’s Taste Napa Valley event was from Shafer Vineyards and brought in just over $45,000 for 10 cases.
