download-1Many years ago I attended a wine auction for Music and Beyond- It was great fun and I learned a lot just chatting to people.

A client of mine was there who knew what he was doing and helped me  bid on some wine – Did I know what I was doing? Nope! Was it fun? You bet!

It all went to support a good cause and to the arts in Ottawa so it was all in all a great experience.

This year I donated wine for a tax credit- so it can work in many ways.Of course drinking the fine wine is always more fun.

When the weather starts to turn and the festive season approaches I find that wine auctions are a great place to buy wonderful wines at sometimes a very good price.



Online bidding closes on September 30th at 2:00 p.m
Your online bid will become part of the live auction starting at 7:00 p.m.

6:30 p.m. – Wine and Cheese Reception and Registration / Vin et fromage reception et inscription

Add to your own collection,

Great place to start  a wine cellar,

Buy for Xmas for someone special or for the business partner.

Buy special  occasions with family or friends. (I did this one year at Christmas and we opened several bottles that I had bought at auction and it was great fun and felt very special and luxurious. 

Buy as an investment- works if you can” stop yourself from opening it”

If you  know wine or even if you don’t and just want to have an enjoyable evening out or thinking of starting a wine collection or just like to drink good wine – this is a good place to start.

Stephan Ranger  will be on hand- a true professional 


Whether you enjoy the occasional glass of wine or have an established cellar, there will be something for everyone.
