The Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses museums are committed to preservation, interpretation and education; they strive to tell the story of why we live in New Orleans, and why we rebuilt our beloved city.

A beautiful, tasty and fun way to support their works is their annual “Amazing Grapes Wine Auction” on April 23. This festive fundraising evening features auctions featuring rare and hard to find wines, luxurious vacations and fabulous art.

Thanks to Zeid Ammari, Chief Operating Officer of Creole Cuisine Restaurant Concepts; Caroline Ferguson, President of The Woman’s Exchange, the parent organization of HGGHH; Dr. James Moises, ER physician and founder of Krewe du Bizou Wines and Moises Wines; and Co-Chairs Tricia King and Stephanie November, all pictured on our cove, urge you to attend and enjoy this veritably vino-filled event.

In addition to all this, there will be six different wine tasting tables featuring five different wines at each, with each table representing a different region or country: Oregon, California, Italy and South America.
