The historic Hermann-Grima House opened its doors for wine tasting in the courtyard.
Co-Chair Dr. Jenny and John Charpentier
Illuminated by festoon lights, the beautiful Hermann-Grima Courtyard’s citrus trees, antique roses and camellias set a delightful backdrop for a night of great wine and food. The funds raised at “Amazing Grapes” directly supported the museum’s educational programs, ensuring the museum’s doors remain open and educational programming is presented to Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses’ ever-growing audience. Dr. Anne Long and Dr. Jenny Charpentier served as Event Co-Chairs.
This year, HGGHH hosted its first “Super Happy Bubbly Hour” Patron Party. Patrons enjoyed glasses of bubbly and sparkling wines in the charming Hermann-Grima Courtyard until the start of the main event.
New Orleans native and owner of Krewe Du Bizou Wines, Dr. James Moises, provided the delicious wine for the wine tasting. Food was provided by Broussard’s Restaurant. The Peter Gustafson Trio played the entire evening.
The auction included 142 lots. Highlights included: Dom Perignon Champagne, a bottle of Old Rip Van Winkle 10-Year Bourbon, Jerobam of Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label Champagne, a private whiskey tasting for up to 24 people, two grand suite tickets to The Avett Brothers at the Saenger Theater, a mixed-media collage by Warren Irwin, 10 tickets to the Krewe of Orpheus Ball in 2018, a Limousine Livery ride and a dinner at Mosca’s.
