The NYIWA is one of the most unique, well-organized and – most of all – fun charity wine auctions I participate in around the country. Arc Herkimer is also one of the most well-run and impressive charity organizations I have been privileged to associate with. Arc Herkimer provides incredibly important services, and delivers them year-round. Every dollar raised at the NYIWA is going to a worthy organization to help those in need.

The wine tasting and dinner during the live auction are both not to be missed. Some of the finest limited production wines from New York and California are open during the tasting and dinner. The live auction itself contains some of the hardest-to-find, one-of-a-kind wine lots I have witnessed in charity auctions large and small around the U.S.

“My wife and I were highest bidders of the dinner and cooking class at Yono's in Albany, NY. We consider this an afternoon with a friend, who may be the best chef in the Capital district. Yono and his beautiful wife, Donna, are perfect teachers and hosts. We learned from Yono in the afternoon and enjoy their companionship and his cuisine in the evening. This is a superlative cooking and dining experience with true friends of the Arc Herkimer.”
