Based in Portland, Oregon, the Classic Wines Auction, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to producing the Classic Wines Auction and related food and wine events to raise funds for local charities benefiting children and families. Recognized as one of the top ten charity wine auctions in the country by Wine Spectator Magazine since 2001, the Classic Wines Auction has raised over $36 million for Portland-area charities since its inception in 1982. Attended by an affluent guest list of more than 900 wine and food enthusiasts from around the country, the gala auction includes a pre-dinner wine tasting, a five-course culinary feast prepared by top guest chefs, selected wines from both national and international wine ambassadors, and a silent and live auction. At the exclusive Ambassador’s Dinner on Friday evening before the auction, up to 200 special guests join wine ambassadors to dine on an elegant meal prepared by a pair of celebrity chefs. The week leading up to the auction includes intimate winemaker-hosted dinners pairing Portland’s finest chefs along with top domestic and international winemakers.
