Hello vinNEBRASKA!

2023 will be the 33rd year that Stu has been the auctioneer for one of the Midwest’s most distinguished charity wine auctions: vinNEBRASKA.

The event takes place on March 31 and April 1. The Grand Wine Tasting, Dinner and Silent and Live Auctions on April 1 is based at the Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District.

In 1989, the vinNEBRASKA Foundation was founded to make the Omaha community a better place through shared appreciation for fine wines and the great state of Nebraska. Today, what was once a small group with a common goal has blossomed into a grand celebration of premier wines, internationally recognized winemakers, generous philanthropy, and scholarship opportunities. To date, vinNEBRASKA has raised over $7 million for local charities. This year guests’ generosity will support the Stephen Center, a combination shelter, rehabilitation facility, and soup kitchen—one of the most impressive and effective organizations in the Midwest.

Smith-Madrone’s lot will be a set of four etched magnums of Cabernet Sauvignon from 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005 and a dinner at the winery, located at the top of the Spring Mountain District in Napa Valley.

No such drama here, just hopefully some provocative fun.
