What to Expect
The Triangle Wine Experience signature event is our Grand Gala and Auction. This event is a three-part extravaganza.
At 5pm, guests will check in to register and get their table assignment, auction catalog and a paddle number.
From 5-7pm, guests will enjoy small bites of food from some of the Triangle’s best chefs (see list below), and sample wines from 70+ wineries (see list below). Be sure to arrive on time so you have the opportunity to sample our exceptional chefs and wineries.
At 7pm, guests will enter our Live Auction ballroom and find their respective tables. From 7pm to 10pm, our auctioneers will guide the guests through our exciting live auction and paddle raise. During this period, guests will sample treats on the center of the table provided by some of the area’s best restaurants and caterers (Angus Barn, Foster’s Market, Neomonde Mediterranean, Poole’s Diner), and they will also enjoy night fare including Pie Pushers pizza, Rise Donuts and Sam Jones BBQ. Wine is provided for each table, but you are welcome to bring some special bottles to share.
From 10pm-11pm, dancing commences, so join us on the dance floor. Enjoy tunes spun by our incomparable DJ, Ryan Pflum. Don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes.
