The annual “Amazing Grapes Fine Wine and Entertaining Auction” is one of two major fundraising events benefiting the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses every year, and as per usual, the evening sold out for an illustrious event of auctions, edibles and more.

Chaired by Ann Koppel Schreiner and Christy Kane, the signature wine dinner celebrated its 25th anniversary this past March and boasted more than 300 attendees.

Funds raised at both this and the fall companion event, “Historic Houses Society 2014,” suport the educational programs of the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses.

Host Loews Hotel provided edibles, including passed hors d’oeuvres and a seated three-course dinner, while Trinchero Family Estates generously donated large amounts of wine. Ruthie Winston served as auctioneer while the live and silent auctions occurred throughout the night featuring items such as a bottle of 1986 Chateau Margaux, a historic brooch from Waldhorn & Adler’s, jewelry, wine, hotel stays, artwork from local artists Alexis Walter and Tim Trapolin and much more.
