The class of classes, the sultans of seminars, the titans of tastings – these events are truly eventful. They bring together real experts in wine, food and fine living and let them unleash their talents in these engaging, informative and fun get-togethers. You’ll laugh, you’ll learn and you’ll drink great wines.
This event, new to last year’s auction, was such a mega-hit, we’re doing it again. We’re still finalizing details, but it will be ab-fab! Noted women chefs and winemakers will collaborate on an outrageously great menu in one of Atlanta’s top venues. That’s a great party already. And who knows what extras we’ll add on before we’re through. An exquisite outing for ladies only!
The best table in the house in Atlanta’s best restaurants, the finest food the restaurant can serve, the personal attention of the Chef and Sommelier AND the best wines of a celebrity winemaker who will be there to personally tell you all about them. Wow. These specially prepared meals and perfectly paired wines create amazing experiences any gourmet worth their salt will absolutely adore.
Love at first sight, first bite and first sip. Drive up (or have the chauffeur drop you off) to one of Atlanta’s finest homes, then walk across the threshold into wine and food utopia. Sample scrumptious hors d’oeuvres and a snappy reception wine and get to know your hosts, the other lucky dinner guests and a world-renowned winemaker. Then the magic truly begins. A mouth-watering meal prepared by a Southern icon chef and matching wines from your world-class winemaker (often two winemakers!) will make this a night to savor.
Anyone who likes a party is going to LOVE this one. It pretty much has it all. It starts with an elegant Champagne reception complete with its own impressive silent auction – the perfect chance to schmooze with friends and browse all the hot Lots.
Next, it’s time for a one-of-a-kind dinner prepared by a host of the most famous chefs from around the South, collaborating on one amazing meal – yours. The fab food will be complemented by winsome wines poured by our celebrity vintners – one or two of whom will be seated at the table with you – perfect dinner companions.
After dessert, dance to a smokin’ live band whose eclectic music mix will groove until your feet move, no matter what your musical vintage may be. Now, are you ready for the Crush?
Dress code is Cocktail Casual.
Anyone with a crush on enjoying great food and sampling the world’s best wines will love the opening act of the day – a simply spectacular Vintners’ Reception featuring fine wines from around the world poured by the winemakers and vineyard reps who know them best. The latest releases, special pourings, who knows what they will uncork? Accompanying these gorgeous glassfuls are a stunning array of small plate delicacies prepared by the best chefs and restaurants in the South. A gourmet’s garden of Eden. Sip, eat, chat – and get ready.
Now it’s time to turn your crush into a full blown, raging love affair. The 24th edition of the High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction has so much to desire. This year’s Live Auction will be like no other. It’s your chance to bid on magnificent trips, fabulous one-of-a-kind dining experiences, incredible original artwork, and of course, exquisite hard-to-find wines, rare large format bottles, wine excursions and any other exotic thing the Donations Committee can find. So many items, an extensive Silent Auction has to handle the awesome overflow. It’s the best party anywhere, and it all benefits the High Museum of Art and our community, so don’t miss a minute. We’ll be crushed if we don’t see you here.
