Wine Tasting & Auction
The Saturday Wine Tasting & Auction is the finale to the 32nd Annual Architectural Tour that features an extraordinary and diverse offering of homes that trace the evolution of the North Coast Style from the creations of the original architects to the current modern 'green' representations of "living lightly on the land."
Many local wineries and businesses have donated premium auction lots such as bottles of award-winning wines, wine related gifts, luxurious lodging packages, golf, kayak tours and other great items. Make what you hope will be winning bids on your favorites, knowing that the proceeds will help promote public interest and participation in the arts. You will also be able to preview our showcase raffle prizes.
The Wine Tasting & Auction begins on Saturday, May 7 at 3:00 p.m. at the Gualala Arts Center. Tickets can be purchased for $25 in advance for this event, or $5 more the day of the event. You can also use your Architectural Tour ticket as entry to the tasting.
