Hearst Castle will be held Thursday, July 10, and the rare & Fine
Wine & Lifestyle Auction will be held at the Host Auction Venue, the
Avila Beach Resort, in Avila Beach on Saturday, July 12. The 2007
Central Coast Wine Classic reached and topped the holy grail of
charity wine auctions by gaveling over one million dollars in
auction bids, thereby placing the annual food and wine extravaganza
among the top such auctions in America. The comprehensive food, wine
and lifestyle event featured a broad spectrum of activities,
including Dinner at Hearst Castle and multiple fine wine-oriented
educational symposia, luncheons and winery dinners. The 2008
Twenty-Fourth Annual Central Coast Wine Classic intends to be
equally comprehensive and hopefully just as successful. For
