The HIGH Museum Atlanta Wine Auction is back! Get Tickets

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

Get Involved

Not only is becoming a Benefactor the only way to ensure that you’ll be a part of this great event, your contribution does so much more—it supports 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 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 artworld and a beacon in the city of Atlanta.

Benefactor packages for the 2021 Wine Auction are available now. Review our 2021 levels below and click here to purchase yours today!

Volunteer!

The Wine Auction relies on the support of over 300 capable volunteers during the course of the long weekend. With a variety of events and jobs available, this is the perfect way for budding food and wine lovers to get involved with the Wine Auction and contribute to the High Museum’s largest fundraiser.  Volunteer registration opens in early 2021 for the 2021 High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction.

Donate Auction Items

Rare and collectible wines not available at retail, large format bottles, and unique food and wine events, trips and experiences are favorites among our bidders. Our winery friends and partners have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and the California wildfires, so this year we are looking for more individual donors.  If you’d like to make a little more room in your cellar or host a dinner party with your favorite chef and winemaker AND have it be 100% tax deductible, we’d love to hear from you!
