Party Time

The Uncorking Cru serves as the official host of the High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction Friday Fête After Party! Get your tickets for a night to remember and keep your glasses filled with selections from our fabulous vintners. You’ll dance the night away as the band cranks up the volume and the energy with a mix of tunes that will have wine lovers of every vintage shaking their grapes and squeezing every drop out of this exquisite evening’s entertainment.

About The Cru

The Uncorking Cru was formed in 2013 as a primary way for the next generation to be involved with the Wine Auction events as well as the High Museum of Art. Composed of 25 to 35-year-old wine, art and philanthropy enthusiasts, the Cru has grown to 75 members. Together, they serve as the chairs of the Friday Fête After Party and volunteer at various Wine Auction events.

Their efforts are vital to raising proceeds for the Museum’s exhibition and education plan, helping to make possible special exhibitions such as African Art: Building the Collection; Howard Finster: Paradise Garden; and Cross Country: The Power of Place in American Art, 1915 -1950.
