Wine Spectator's Wine Experience

The WINE EXPERIENCE consists of extensive tasting's, lectures by noted authorities, special lunches hosted by winegrowers from around the world, and a black-tie banquet with star-studded entertainment. This event, attended by Wine Spectator readers and wine-industry professionals, is the largest of its kind and is sold out every year. Funds raised benefit the Wine Spectator Scholarship Foundation, which underwrites wine industry research and has awarded more than 400 student scholarships to date.

The Grand Tastings

The GRAND TASTINGS are two evenings of amazing wine tasting's that are part of the Wine Experience. On these memorable nights, more than 200 of the best wineries/châteaus from the world's top wine growing regions pour their wines for America's wine consumers.

Grand Tour

The GRAND TOUR, which takes place in cities around the United States, provides a unique opportunity to experience the world's finest wines. Two hundred of the world's most prestigious wineries pour one of their best wines at each stop. Tasting's include wines that are hard to find and many of Wine Spectator's top-scoring selections.

The NAPA MAGNUM PARTY is held each year before Auction Napa Valley. It includes an evening of music, dancing and dining at Tra Vigne, plus magnums of new and classic wines. The nearly 1,000 attendees include California winemakers, vineyard owners and generous participants of Auction Napa Valley.
