You Wont Believe this Exclusive Discount Offer at Auburn James Winery!

Local Wally

Auburn James Winery in Napa - Exclusive Local Wally offer!

Local Wally's Exclusive VIP Discount Offer at Auburn James Winery in Napa

Get a Two for One tasting, a special VIP pour of their Bella Vista Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon ($125 per bottle, baby!), a cheese platter, a personal private tour, and lots of personal attention.  The tasting alone is normally $35 per person but you get two tastings and all the extras for the same price - but only for a limited time.

What?  You've never heard of AuburnJames?  That's the point! While everyone is lining up at the bar and fighting for a spot at the big name wineries you'll be casually sipping a very exclusive wine, tossing a bocce ball, kicking back and enjoying every minute. Compare this experience to what you might find at one of the big touristy wineries - you know, big crowds, fighting for elbow room at the bar, and the obnoxious guy who seems to show up at every winery you visit. Egads, get out of there and get into AuburnJames!


1.  This offer is included with your Priority Wine Pass.  To get a pass go here to order.  It will be $39.99 but you only need one pass per couple. And remember, the Priority Wine Pass gets you two for one's all over Napa and Sonoma so your savings are just beginning.

This offer is only good during Harvest 2017 but if you can get your pass and make your reservations for anytime in the next year. That's right, even if you are coming next Summer you can get this deal - as long as you buy the Priority Wine Pass now and book your reservation this Fall.

2.  Call to make reservations and ask for the LOCAL WALLY AND PRIORITY WINE PASS HARVEST SPECIAL.  That's it, easy as pie!  This is an exclusive offer that you won't find on anywhere else but you must ask for it - "Harvest Special!!"

3.  You want to picnic?  Let them know when making your reservation and they'll have a Dean & Deluca box lunch waiting for you.  No, you can't bring in your own food but who cares if Dean & Deluca is catering???

Taste inside their quaint cottage.


AuburnJames wines begin in the Spring of each growing season when Jim & Matt walk the vineyards discussing what each would like to achieve for the club membership for that vintage. The plan is then written in pencil and Mother Nature makes the changes that she deems necessary for the vintage. At harvest, fruit is carefully selected from each block within each vineyard. These relationships with independent growers throughout Northern California enable AuburnJames to enjoy the best fruit that many of the AVAs have to offer. From great fruit, and Jim’s artistry, AuburnJames has been able to produce award winning wines year over year.


Expect to spend around 90 minutes here if you do the tour, tasting, cheese pairing and VIP pours. Maybe add a few minutes if you plan to play some bocce ball or relax in the gardens. Maybe allow an entire afternoon and open a bottle and just forget about your other plans! This offer is good for Harvest 2016 and may expire without notice so get your pass and make that reservation to lock in this deal!  Tastings are at 10, 12 and 2.
