Wine Barrel Auction

Private Label Wine for Your Foundation Members

DID YOU KNOW THAT WINE IS A TOP 5 GIFT FOR THE ADULT MARKET IN THE UNITED STATES?

How the Barrel Auction Works

From the moment your Barrel Auction is presented to your members, your members will quickly become enamored with the concept of buying part of a wine barrel. At a live barrel auction, it takes less than 4 minutes on average to raise over $20,000.

This is a chance to own a truly one of a kind wine, cultivated in Napa or Sonoma, from some of the world’s most acclaimed vineyards. Handcrafted by legendary winemakers and evaluated by an elite team of Master Sommeliers, this is a rare opportunity to taste and own a masterpiece.

A barrel auction offers your audience the ability to buy into one barrel of wine, equaling 25 cases of wine (12 bottles per case). Each case of wine can be personalized with your member’s custom label, so effectively 12 bottles can be labeled with one unique design. Our team of artists can assist your winning members in creating a unique brand of wine that they can keep for drinking at family gatherings or give away to friends or clients. Alternatively, your winning members can supply their own artwork or use one of our existing templates. We make the design and fulfillment process for your corporate branded wine gifts super easy!

Committing to one barrel doesn’t mean you are obligated to take all the wine, so if you only auction off 15 cases from one barrel, you’re only obligation is to pay for the fraction of wine that you auctioned off. Therefore, there is no financial risk involved for your organization!

Winesking Wine can handle all donation revenues or work with you on a custom platform that suits your needs.

“We have worked with Winesking Wine two different times since I became the Executive Director at the Eanes Education Foundation and we couldn’t be more grateful for their support.

At our gala this year and in less than 5 minutes, we auctioned off 2 barrels, raising over $40,000 to fund teachers throughout our district. Our Wine Barrel Auction has quickly become one of our top 5 most popular live auction items and that is saying something in one of the most successful live auctions throughout Austin.”
