Wine Crush 2020, Home Edition!

We don’t know what the next several weeks may bring, so for the safety of the community, we have reimagined Wine Crush 2020.  Wine Crush Home Edition will feature an online auction May 10-16, 2020.  Daily livestreams with local celebrities will highlight auction items, sponsors and more.  On May 16th, we will livestream the end of the auction, as well as the drawing for the raffle.  We are partnering with local chefs that evening to provide gourmet boxed dinners, complete with suggested wine pairings, so that individuals can participate in Wine Crush from the comfort of their homes while we close out the event.  We are exploring new ideas every day to make this online event as interactive as possible, so stay tuned for updates!
