Manhattan Wine Auction

The 25th annual Manhattan Wine Auction was held on a picture-perfect day--and raised almost $1.2 million to benefit schools in Manhattan Beach, California. The event was hosted by the Manhattan Beach Country Club and featured food and wine tastings, a silent and live auction.

The food and wine tastings and silent auction items were held on four tennis courts-- where Ed and I poured our 2015 Vineyard {511} Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon.

                                                                         

The whole country club had been transformed for the event. The live auction was held on center court.

                                                                       

Chevron Corporation kicked off the live auction by announcing a contribution of $300,000 to the school district and another $100,000 to the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation. Music and dancing followed a delicious dinner. Everyone had a great time.
