2024 Participating Wineries

Washington State is one of the world’s most dynamic wine regions, rooted in a semi-desert climate with extended sunlight, a shorter growing season and superior terroir. Winemakers take a hand-on approach at crafting one-of-a-kind wines available for bid at the Private Barrel Auction. This year we are thrilled to welcome a select group of Washington’s top wineries.
