WFAE Auction

Events to Support Arts Education

Concerts at Wente Vineyards

Since 1986, Wente Vineyards has hosted The Concerts at Wente Vineyards, bringing world-class performers to the Livermore Valley. Before each concert we take a few minutes to conduct a quick auction to raise money for The Wente Foundation for Arts Education. We auction large-format bottles of wine signed by the artists who are performing that evening. Thanks to the generosity of our performing artists and our winning bidders, we have raised nearly $300,000 with these auctions, giving students access to instruments and teachers that may otherwise have been unavailable due to budget cuts.
