{Auction of Washington Wines Online Auction}

Starting on July 8, 2013 and ending July 15, 2013, Auction of Washington Wines will be auctioning off a number of fun and unique items to bid on to raise money for our organization via our online auction! These auction lots have been hand picked by Paul Gregutt and promise not to disappoint!

The online auction fundraiser will be benefiting Seattle Children's Hospital and Washington State University's Viticulture & Enology Program.

As an added bonus- many of lots feature wines created by winemakers who will be attending the August 15th, Picinic & Barrel Auction! This is a great opportunity to mix-and-mingle with our state's proud winemakers.
