Industry unites behind charity wine auction

wine symposium

Celebrations for the 30th Edition of the Hawke’s Bay Wine Auction will kick off on Saturday 17th September, where great wine lots, many of which are unique to the event, and a beautiful piece of original art are offered to a room of 600+ people, and afar.

For more than 30 years the Hawke’s Bay wine community, along with its partners, has been supporting its local community by raising funds for Cranford Hospice.

100% of the money raised goes to the operational side of Cranford Hospice, directly assisting those in need of their services each day.

Ways to bid on the auction:

  1. Purchase a ticket from the website, register as a bidder and attend the auction on Saturday 17th September.
  2. If you cannot be present, register as a bidder on the website and a representative will bid on your chosen Lot on your behalf, with a pre-agreed budget. This needs to be done by Friday 16th September so we can make arrangements. The Auction will be live-streamed on the website on the day.
  3. You can be a telephone bidder. This needs to be done by Friday 16th September.
  4. Pre-register a bid for any of the lots. The Auctioneer will have this information when the Lots come up.

You can be an individual bidder or form a syndicate. See here for the 101 on forming a syndicate.

Below is the catalogue, and the website also lists the Silent Auction Lots.
