Welcome to the Whitefish Wine Auction website where you'll learn about Montana's premier public wine event! After six consecutive years, we are taking a break in 2016 from the Wine Auction!


Once we make our plans for 2017, we'll let you know on this website and through other communications. Until then, here's a recap of the 2015 event.


We were pleased to welcome back wine sponsor, Foley Family Wines, with premier vineyards located throughout the finest wine growing regions in California, the Pacific Northwest, and New Zealand. Our guests enjoyed delectable Foley wines selected to accompany fantastic hors d'oeuvres, as well as extraordinary auction lots from the Foley Family Wines portfolio. The Whitefish Lake Institute gratefully acknowledges past board president Greg Lane and vintner/Foley Family Wines founder Bill Foley for their generous ongoing support of the Whitefish Lake Institute and the community of Whitefish.


Sponsorship and support from Montana distributors Fun Beverage, Inc., George's Distributing, and Intermountain Distributing have helped to make the Whitefish Wine Auction the premier wine event in Montana!


Please visit our sponsor page to see all of our 2015 sponsors.  We hope you will visit our many local and out of area sponsors to enjoy their offerings and thank them for their support of the Whitefish Lake Institute.
