Auction Lots

Washington Wines

This bottle auction is all about variety. You will find bottles from familiar wineries such as L’Ecole 41, Betz Family Winery and Leonetti Cellars, and from some that may be new to you, such as Klipsun, Damsel Cellars and Three of Cups. You will find horizontals, verticals, library wines and packages offering wines from “then and now”. It is a fun way explore some of your favorite wineries or try something new!

AWW Cellar

Once again, we are raiding AWW’s cellar to bring you some of our most precious and holiday-worthy Washington wines. We have included one-of-a-kind wines offered at our invitation-only Private Barrel Auction, festive-sized Commemorative Magnums from past galas, and some unique bottles and verticals we have been saving for a special occasion.

Buy-In Dinners and a Pool Party

Yes, this is a bottle auction, but we are bending the rules to include these incredible experiences! You still have a chance to secure your spot at The French Connection, an intimate dinner with Christophe Baron and Thierry Rautureau, or Dinner with Charles, a private meal at the lakeside home of Charles Smith accompanied by rare wines from his cellar. Maybe a VIP Party by the Pool with Macklemore is more your speed? Maybe you want to attend all three? Go ahead and splurge, we won’t judge!

Cabernet is the most famous grape in Bordeaux and in Napa Valley and it’s on the rise as Washington’s number one wine grape as well, surpassing Chardonnay and Riesling. But so many varietals grow well in Washington that one grape has never defined the industry. Join Karen and three visionary winemakers, as we talk about Washington’s past, present, and future.
