New Zealands Oldest Charity Wine Auction

Each year skilled winemakers craft unique lots exclusively for the Midland’s Hawke’s Bay Charity Wine Auction. These fine Hawke’s Bay wines imbued with the generosity and spirit of their creators reflect the success of the event which over the past fifteen years has raised well in excess of a million dollars for Hawke’s Bay’s Cranford Hospice.

The graciously renovated Hawke’s Bay Opera House provides the perfect backdrop to such an auspicious event. It is here on June 3rd 2007 that wine, food, art and good company, lead by the enigmatic Willy de Wit, will combine to create an exciting day benefiting Cranford Hospice, one of New Zealand’s leading palliative care facilities.

This year we welcome back guest auctioneer Andrew Caillard MW from Australia’s Langton’s Fine Wine Auctions. – This important event not only raises much needed funds for Cranford Hospice but also shows off the sheer diversity and quality of Hawke’s Bay wines, not to mention the generosity of all those involved

We strongly recommend you reserve your seats and tables to the Midland’s Hawke’s Bay Charity Wine Auction immediately as tickets are limited.
Tickets: $140 per person
