Welcome to the Whitefish Wine Auction website where you'll learn about Montana's premier public wine event! You'll have access to information about the two evenings of activities and be able to purchase tickets on line. Join us for one or both fun and exciting evenings with chances to bid on unusual wine lots, getaway packages, recreational trips and more. And—of course—there will be a fantastic assortment of wines for tasting on Thursday night, and wines paired with our four-course family style dinner on Friday night.

 

Back by overwhelmingly popular demand, our special guest MC and Auctioneer will be Missoula Mayor, John Engen. He brought the Friday auction to lively heights in 2013. Guests joined Mayor John Engen and the Whitefish Lake Institute as we unveiled our "Keep it Blue" theme. We're getting the word out early this year to celebrate the them in your own style—(hint: blue attire is welcome!).

 

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 wines during our Thursday lakeside wine tasting, a special selection of excellent wines paired with our Friday evening four course family style dinner, and some extraordinary auction lots from several Foley Family Wines vineyards. The Whitefish Lake Institute gratefully acknowledges past board president Greg Lane and vintner/Foley Family Wines founder Bill Foley for their generous support of the Whitefish Lake Institute and the community of Whitefish.

 

We are most excited about the Lodge's new chef, Jeff Hobart, who promises a delectable on-time meal this year.

 

We also welcome back Montana distributors Fun Beverage, Inc., George's Distributing, and Intermountain Distributing who help make this the premier wine event in Montana!

 

Please visit our sponsor page to see all of our 2014 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.


Mark your calendars for next year: July 17 & 18, 2015
