High Wine Auction - March 18-20: Art, Wine, & Friends: Together in Spirit

The Main Attraction

While we hoped to gather everyone together in the tents, the pandemic numbers are not in our favor. We have made the prudent and safe choice to make the Live Auction a virtual, live-streamed event.

An exciting week with a combination of in-person and virtual events are in store! The ever-popular Winemaker Dinners will take place in homes across Atlanta. Our ladies will toast to the Museum with bubbles at their luncheon and our gents will gather to celebrate with hints of oak and cigar at their own event. On Saturday, we’ll enjoy a menu created by Chef Chris Hall before logging on to watch the Live Auction stream. Auctioneer, John Curley, will be leading the charge to gather online bids on wine, trips, and more!

Although we will miss having 1,000 friends together under the tents, the co-chairs and Auction staff are excited to bring the Wine Auction community Together in Spirit as we work to raise vital funds for the High Museum of Art.

“True friends are always together in spirit.”

L.M. Montgomery,
Anne of Green Gables

A Little About Us

The High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction is the largest fundraising event for the High Museum of Art, the leading art museum in the southeastern United States. Grossing over $2.6 million in 2019, the Wine Auction is the top charity fundraising event in Atlanta, one of the largest charity wine auctions in the U.S., and the number one charity wine auction benefiting the arts. The Wine Auction has generated more than $34 million over the last 28 years!

Funds raised by the auction support the High Museum’s continuing mission to provide educational programs and various outreach efforts to local youth and to consistently deliver world-class art exhibitions that make Atlanta proud. As we work to manage the impacts of COVID-19, the High Museum needs your support now more than ever! The American Alliance of Museums reports that up to 33% of U.S. museums risk closing permanently due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The leadership team at the High Museum works hard to be sure they are fiscally responsible. In fact, the Museum has finished in the black for the past 27 years in a row. Becoming a Benefactor of the Museum’s single, largest fundraising event will have a direct impact on operations and help ensure that the High remains a leader in the art world and a beacon in the city of Atlanta.
