About Us

Vintage Albuquerque Image Gallery (82/151)It’s hard to believe, but 2017 is Vintage Albuquerque’s 26th year!  What started in 1992 as a small fundraiser for the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra has grown into the largest wine auction event in the southwest. In 2010, Vintage Albuquerque became an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to supporting much-needed art education programs and outreach activities focused on K-12 students in the city and state.

Vintage Albuquerque Image Gallery (119/151)Each year, a leading figure from the wine industry serves Vintage Albuquerque as its Honorary Chair.  We are pleased to have Christopher Howell of Cain Vineyard and Winery  Chris Howelljoin us for the 2017 festivities.  Past chairs have included Chuck Wagner of Caymus Vineyards, Harrison Heitz (Heitz Cellar), Lucciano Castelli (Castello Banfi), Harry Peterson-Nedry (Chehalem) , Jim Clenendan (Au Bon Climat), Peter Mondavi, Sr. (Charles Krug), Dan Duckhorn (Duckhorn), Mireille Guilano (Clicquot), Richard Ponzi (Ponzi), Roberto Stucchi (Badia a Coltibuono), Michaela Rodeno (St. Supery), Craig Williams (Joseph Phelps), Beth Novak Milliken (Spottswoode), Justin Baldwin (Justin) and Merry Edwards (Merry Edwards).

Vintage Albuquerque Image Gallery (121/151)From its early years, Vintage Albuquerque has been a venue for creative expression —fine wine, music and related art forms. Integral to Vintage Albuquerque is the designation annually of a featured artist who donates a work of art, that is sold during the live auction. Vintage Albuquerque 2016 is pleased to feature the work of the talented Paul Murray.
