The New York International Wine Auction is a premier wine and culinary event that serves as a major charitable wine auction for Arc Herkimer, located in Herkimer, NY.

NYIWA attracts wine enthusiasts and from all over the United States. The auction features wines from every major growing region of the world--bidders at NYIWA are consistently given the opportunity to obtain the best names in wine. Large format bottles, verticals, and rare acquisitions have become the standard for the event. In addition to the great wine up for auction, NYIWA also offers for bid — trips, jewelry, and other fine lifestyle items. Each year, a wine tasting occurs during the silent auction. Following the tasting, guests can experience a five-course gourmet dinner paired with outstanding wines, a fabulous live auction, and lively entertainment.

NYIWA Auction Staff are inspired each year by the continuing generosity of the top wineries and individuals in the United States to support the work the human service agency does on behalf of people with disabilities. Proceeds are used to cover the cost of vital programs, which are not reimbursed at either state or federal levels. From its beginnings in 1996, NYIWA has enjoyed great success, and will go out on top for the event's 25th Anniversary and final celebration!

Arc Herkimer is a not-for-profit organization that serves and advocates for over 700 individuals with disabilities and their families each year. http://www.archerkimer.org/

“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 Arc Herkimer.”
