35th ANNUAL RARE & FINE WINE AUCTION SPONSORSHIPS

The Rare & Fine Wine Auction begins with a sparkling auction lot preview reception where guests are welcomed with wine selections from our Featured Winemaker. Directly following, guests are seated for an elegant four-course dinner, accompanied by an impressive wine selection presented by a team of Austin’s best sommeliers. The highlight of the evening is the electrifying live auction where spirited bidders compete for rare and fine wines as well as other luxury packages, all in support of the work of The Wine & Food Foundation of Texas.

All fundraising efforts from the event are used towards supporting the professions that provide our community with dynamic experiences - many times, through scholarships, travel stipends, and professional development opportunities.
