A Weekend of Wine in Sun Valley
The Sun Valley Center Wine Auction unfolds over three glorious, activity-filled days
The 37th Annual Sun Valley Center Wine Auction, hosted by The Sun Valley Center for the Arts, runs from July 19 – July 21, 2018. This year’s selection of top vintners, chefs, sponsors, entertainment and auction lots are bound to deliver on the auction’s reputation as one of the 10 best charity wine auctions in the country and one of the Valley’s premier summer season events.
The Wine Auction celebrations begin with the Vintner Dinners. These intimate gatherings with some of the country’s top winemakers are held in beautiful private homes around the valley, delivering an extraordinary experience. Both locally and globally renowned chefs prepare these unforgettable wine-paired meals.
The Wine Auction Gala is renowned for its fabulous entertainment, stellar cuisine, special winery-hosted tables with designated stewards and impressive auction lots. The 2018 Live Auction includes extraordinary experiences and exclusive wine lots, while the Silent Auction will feature premium and hard-to-find wine and wine experiences.
An incredible menu of multiple gourmet courses, all prepared with Idaho flair will anchor this sellout-event. Gala attendees will have the opportunity to support The Center by bidding on exceptional silent and live lots: travel, once-in-a-lifetime experiences, extraordinary wines and so much more.
The Wine Auction extravaganza culminates in the signature Vine & Dine event at Dollar Mountain Lodge—a lawn party with great wines, tasty food, live music and dancing. Gifted local chefs present tapas-style specialties while wineries showcase their best varietals for guests to enjoy.
