NYIWA Grand Finale ~ 09.25.2021

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 grand finale 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/

“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.”
