Celebrating all things wine, the annual spring fundraiser “Amazing Grapes” is hosted by the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses. This event helps to sustain its educational programming; these programs are tailored to the individual classroom curriculum of each school and offer uncommon perspectives on the diversity of life in 19th-century New Orleans.

Executive director Mamie Sterkx Gasperecz; vice president of trade relations Barry Wiss and regional manager Keith de la Gardelle for Trinchero Family Estates; and co-chairs Holt Kolb and Cara Ogg hope that you’ll join them on Friday, March 1, at the Westin New Orleans Canal Place hotel.

The event will kick off at 6 p.m. with a patron party featuring an exclusive patron auction board. The official start to the gala will be at 7 p.m. with a cocktail hour featuring heavy hors d’oeuvres and the start of a silent auction. Immediately following cocktails, guests will have the opportunity to participate in a very “spirited” live auction, as well as a three-course seated dinner accompanied by pairing of wines from Trinchero Family Estates.

For more information and to purchase tickets, call 525-5661.
