The Wine Auction weekend is Sonoma County Vintner’s second big event of the year. It brings together some of the most respected vintners, wine collectors, and inspired bidders for an opportunity to score some of Sonoma County’s top wines and once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences.
Proceeds from the auction fund the Sonoma County Vintners Foundation, for the purpose of supporting nonprofit organizations on education & literacy, health & human services, the environment, and arts & culture. The efforts of the Foundation are well respected locally, and Wine Spectator named it one of the nation’s top charitable auctions. So far, proceeds have raised 40 million dollars and support more nonprofits than any other fundraising event in Sonoma County.
Why is it so successful? Because it’s a weekend full of awesome food, wine, winning bids, laughs, and cheers!
The Wine Auction Weekend includes vintner’s dinners with winemakers and renowned chefs, the Biggest. Party. Ever., that takes place at Rodney Strong Vineyards, and culminates with the auction at La Crema Estate. Auctioneer John Curley has to be the most entertaining auctioneer on the planet!
