Lakers Kyle Kuzma, and more.  About the Event Produced by Jason and Christina Wise (SOMM Documentary Films and SOMM TV), the 75-minute live event and auction will be hosted by Master of Wine Vanessa Conlin, Head of Wine at Wine Access, world-renowned auctioneer Fritz Hatton, as well as Jameson Humane and 750 Wines Founders Monica and David Stevens; and will be broadcast on SOMM TV, merging the excitement of a live auction with pre-recorded auction lot content.
