Auction Preview: Four Bottles of Turley Specialty Wines

Posted by Tall Ships America on June 9, 2011

Turley Wine Cellars, based out of St. Helena, California, has something of a cult following for their bold and balanced zinfandels. For a long time, it was impossible to get a bottle of their wine without being on their mailing list (and a two year waiting list to get on that mailing list). However, as the production has grown so has the distribution so it is relatively easier to purchase the coveted wines in retail locations. Turley Wine Cellars still maintains it’s status as an “ultra-premium producer of zinfandels” (California Winery Advisor) and their wines are full-bodied with very high alcohol. 

Turley Wine Cellars has generously donated four bottles of their wines to be auctioned off at the  Harry Anderson 90th Birthday Gam2004 Presenti Vineyard Zinfandel, 2005 Duarte Zinfandel, 2007 Hayne Vineyard Petite Syrah, and 2008 Turley Zinfandel Tofanelli Vineyard (descriptions of these bottles can be found on our Auction Preview page). Raise your glass and bid on what is widely viewed as being the best zinfandel in California!

This item and other prizes  will be auctioned off on Saturday, June 18th, at Harry Anderson’s 90th Birthday Gam, a fundraiser to establish an endowment for the American Sail Training Association and to celebrate the life of Harry Anderson.
