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.

“Sure there's great food and wine in a wonderful location for a most worthy cause, but the reason my wife and I don't just send in the check is the people who are associated with the event: the Arc Herkimer staff, the NYIWA team, the attendees, and, of course, the people for whom this event is held. They all come together to create a very special experience.”
