The record-breaking HB Wine Auction took place this year on Saturday 28th November, and was held at Hawkes Bay’s newly-opened Toi Toi – HB Arts & Events Centre, it was a fantastic re-entry to post-Covid life, and raised $303,000 for our Cranford Hospice!
WineWorks has continued its sponsorship of this auction, as it is the only event we sponsor that supports everyone we touch: Our amazing winemakers, our own team, most of whom have a personal experience of this great charity, and our community.
We consider this our most important ‘give-back’ to the community. It’s huge fun to attend, and to put together a syndicate.
Here is a behind-the scenes video of how we assist the wineries who run the auction, where we hand-bottle one of the special lots, and help Annabel put it all together .
Here’s our esteemed Plant Manager Steve White kicks off the festivities by slinging some healthy reparteee at the crowd and at our Tim Nowell-Usticke! (see pic):
