Spiraling bids, frothy bubbly and a smattering of confetti are expected to keep pace with the fast-talking auctioneer at Sunday's Sonoma Harvest Wine Auction. The live auction will be at Chateau St. Jean winery in Kenwood. Here's a peek at the auction lots expected to be the most hotly contested:

- Dan Kosta and Michael Browne of Sebastopol's Kosta Browne Winery are offering a World Cup lot. The winners will travel with Kosta and Browne in 2014 to Brazil to witness the action first hand.

- The Gallo family will host a "Denim and Diamonds Party" at the MacMurray Ranch in Healdsburg. Kate MacMurray and Gallo family members will be on hand with a feast grilled by sausage pro Bruce Aidells.

Phil Coturri of Enterprise Vineyards in Sonoma and Robert Kamen of Kaman Estate Wines in Sonoma have put together a magnum collection of wines from vineyards Coturri has farmed. These wineries include Amapola Creek, Lasseter Family Winery and Stone Edge Farm, among others.
