The Northwest Wine Benefit Foundation, dba Auction of Washington Wines, is Washington state’s only nonprofit wine event that has been around for 31 years. We are ranked in the Top 3 U.S. Charity Auctions*, and have raised over $46 million since our inception in 1988. Our focus is on elevating the awareness of Washington State wines through a series of events over a weekend in August. Proceeds benefit the wine industry and local community.
