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.

“The New York International Wine Auction runs flawlessly every year, but only because of the extensive—and mostly unseen—preparation done in advance. Much of that work goes into choosing the courses of the gourmet dinner and the fine wines to match with the food. Having participated in the preliminary tastings and the rehearsal dinner, it’s clear that the pairings for this year’s auction dinner are as good as any we’ve experienced in our more than 10 years of attendance. If you like delicious food, expertly paired with the finest wines, served in the midst of an organized frenzy of auction excitement, you must attend the 2013 NYIWA!”
