Gala Wine Dinner and Auction

Saturday, February 8, 2014

DSC_7697The centerpiece of Wine Weekend is the Gala Wine Dinner and Auction in The Grand Ballroom at the  Renaissance Vinoy St. Petersburg Resort.

We are delighted to welcome Nicholas Allen, Proprietor of Carte Blanche Wines, Napa, California, and the great-grandson of Clarence Dillon of Chateau Haut-Brion, as our evening’s Featured Vintner and Special Guest of Honor. During the cocktail hour and seated wine dinner, guests will enjoy socializing while having the opportunity to bid electronically using their smart phones on great Silent Auction items.

Additional guest vintners include, Squire Fridell of GlenLyon Vineyards & Winery, Ron Lachini of Lachini Vineyards, Helen Keplinger & DJ Warner of Keplinger Wine, and Mike Hirby of Relic Wine Cellars.

The highlight of the evening will be the fast-paced Live Auction where passion for the cause and the fabulousness of the wines and luxury lifestyle trips, experiences and items always leads to generous and enthusiastic bidding.

The Gala Wine Auction and Dinner is included in all sponsorship packages; Individual tickets will be available, $285 per person for Saturday Night only or  $800 per person for the Party Package, which includes both the Friday and the Saturday night events.

Funds generated by Wine Weekend substantially support the Museum’s educational programming as well as its overall mission to collect, preserve and display objects of artistic interest in an inviting setting.
