I received the email from Castel but did not really get what the auction was. Then I received another email and looked into it and this looks like a great opportunity to get some art and/or wine and make a difference for at-risk Jews in Israel. They have set up a GREAT site:http://castelartandwine.com/
About the Auction
Domaine du Castel is proud to sponsor a Charity auction of Israeli art and a Limited Edition of Castel Grand Vin 2009 with special labels of the same artwork. The benefit will go to the “Threefold Cord” – a non-profit organization which cares for at-risk youth in Jerusalem.
Domaine du Castel and the Ben-Zaken family are long time supporters of the “Threefold Cord”.

Arie Azene, Nissim Ben Aderet, Amnon David Ar, Yair Garbuz, Ori Gersht, Menashe Kadishman, Michel Kichka, Ofer Lellouche, Philip Rantzer, Jan Rauchwerger, Gideon Rubin, Eran Shakin, & Yigal Tumarkin.
For each label, Domaine du Castel produced one Imperial, one Double Magnum, one Magnum, a case of 12 x 750 ml bottles and a case of 6 x 750 ml bottles.
Also, two complete sets of 18 bottles with all the labels will be auctioned.
The Limited Edition bottles will be exhibited alongside the original artwork from June 6th to June 13th at Tavi Gallery, Neve Tzedek,Tel-Aviv.
