A celebration of wine, A benefit for the arts.
About the Sun Valley Wine Auction
Founded in 1981, the Sun Valley Wine Auction began as an intimate fundraising event for what was then the emerging arts organization that was to become the Sun Valley Museum of Art. Over the years, the Wine Auction has grown to become the oldest and longest running charity wine auction in the country and vital to arts programming in the Wood River Valley. Since the founding, and consistently ranking in Wine Spectator’s annual Top 10 Charity Wine Auctions, the festival brings together both small and large and always distinguished vintners, celebrity chefs, and wine lovers for a celebration of wine, food, friendship all in support of the arts. Proceeds from the Auction provide a significant source of funding for the Museum’s exhibitions and educational programs. The Wine Auction fuels SVMoA’s free year-round arts integration programs, reaching 4,000 student participants in the Wood River Valley, and supports our annual Scholarship Program, which has awarded more than $1,000,000 to continued arts education since its inception.
