About The Cru

The Uncorking Cru was formed in 2013 as a primary way for the next generation to be involved with 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 Fever Within: The Art of Ronald Lockett and I See a Story: The Art of Eric Carle.
