Snapshots from the 2017 High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction

The High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction returned for its 25th year this March, bringing top wines and winemakers from the West Coast and beyond to the tents at Turner Field. Some of my favorite wineries from years past returned to share their latest releases.

This year’s event raised more than $2.6 million for the High Museum and its programs.

Here are snapshots from the 2017 High Museum Atlanta Wine Auction.

Wines ready for tasting as guests arrive at the Vintners Reception at the High Museum Wine Auction.
The best way to start a tasting — with champagne! Billecart Salmon is always delicious.
Consistently delicious and always a must-taste, Pinot Noir from Sam Lando.
Co-founders Michael Browne and Dan Kosta were among this year’s guests of honor. Their Pinot Noir is always excellent.
Longtime favorites, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. They had a lovely Sauvignon Blanc as well.
Von Strasser, from Napa Valley’s Diamond Mountain.
New to this year’s Wine Auction, Stoller Family Estate from Dundee Hills in Oregon. I particularly enjoyed their reserve Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Also new to this year’s event, Rudd from Oakville in the Napa Valley.
Wines from noted Napa winemaker Luc Morlet.
The auction begins!
