The auction raised $769,800 donated by generous philanthropists who attended the event in Piedmont and in New York City.

They will be marked with a numbered label, created by the international artist Michelangelo Pistoletto.
In addition to that, another 10 subscribers won more than 1,200 fine bottles of Barolo and Barbaresco – subdivided into 10 lots on the basis of the municipality of production – that 70 producers donated for the auction with the intent of contributing to fundraising for the Alba Wine School.
