    On Saturday, April 11WFFT will celebrate their 30th Annual Rare & Fine Wine Auction at Austin’s Four Seasons Hotel. As one of the nation’s largest auctions of its kind, the black-tie event will draw 350 wine connoisseurs eager to find rare bottles to add to their private fine wine collections.

    Showcasing exquisite wines from around the world and the inspired culinary styling of top local chefs, the Rare & Fine Wine Auction will kick off with a sparkling auction lot preview reception hosted by The Donum Estate’s Anne Moller-Racke — the event’s Featured Winemaker — who will pour selections of the vineyard’s highly regarded Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. Directly following, guests will be seated for a four-course dinner featuring an impressive wine selection presented by a team of Austin’s best sommeliers. The highlight of the evening each year  is the electrifying live auction where spirited bidders compete for rare and fine wines as well as other luxury packages all in support of The Rare & Fine Wine Auction’s 2015 beneficiaries.

    “While our charity auction has evolved over the past 30 years, we remain committed to hosting an elegant gala that raises money for important causes,” comments Daniel Bleier, chairperson of WFFT’s Auction Committee. “Now the largest live auction in Austin, our event has become an institution in Austin, bringing together a community of people who share a passion for philanthropy and fine wine.”

    To kick off Auction Weekend, Austin’s legendary Franklin Barbecue will fire up its smokers on Thursday, April 9, exclusively for The Wine & Food Foundation. Join fellow oenophiles for some of the finest brisket, ribs, sausage and fixins to be found anywhere, complemented by BBQ friendly wines selected by the Auction Committee. Tickets are $100 per person and can be purchased now at this location.
