Held from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m., Grape Arts XVII is an exciting and energetic afternoon of art & wine. There will be four silent auctions and one mini-live auction where guests will be able to bid on hundreds of original artworks, unique items and gift certificates for area restaurants & businesses.
In addition to the silent auctions, there are two different and unique types of wine tastings presented throughout the afternoon: from 2-4 p.m. fifteen wineries & wine merchants pour wines for guests during our Informal Tastings; then, from 4-5:30 p.m., guests are directed to the main event ballroom where they are seated at tables of nine. Guests are then treated to Formal pourings wherein they will have the opportunity to taste international, national and regional wines poured & presented by wine aficionados, vintners, wine merchants, restaurateurs, and collectors.
