Metamorphoses in Magnums


OVID. Napa Valley represents 15 acres of California's most distinctive and dynamic terroir, located atop Pritchard Hill at an elevation of 1,500 feet. Here, winemaker Austin Peterson seeks a harmonious balance between tension and intention through long-lived wines that balance warmth and generosity with nerve, power and finesse.


The winery's name was inspired by the Roman poet, Pūblius Ovidius Nāsō (known as Ovid), whose Metamorphoses-a poetic retelling of the Greek myths-celebrates themes of transformation and change:

"Partly we recovered the olde, familiar things, partly we created something wondrous and new."

This three-year magnum vertical collection, spanning the 2008 to 2010 vintages, is the first of its kind ever offered by the winery. As the winning bidder, you'll enjoy the opportunity to collect or taste through the early narrative of our flagship estate wine, OVID Napa Valley, described by Vinous as "one of the most exciting new entrants into the world of premium Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon."


In addition, as the winning bidder, you and up to five guests will enjoy a private tour and tasting at OVID with managing partner Jack Bittner and winemaker Austin Peterson.
