Welcome to WineLover's Auction

WineLover's Auction is a signature event reflective of the extraordinary people who populate the Palm Springs area and the wines they love to drink. Just as the Coachella Valley draws fascinating people from all over the world, the superb wines presented at the annual WineLover's Auction come from all over the United States as well as from France, Italy, Chile, Argentina, Australia and more.

Guests who attend the WineLover's Auction are able to bid on wine travel packages and wine dinners, golfing events with wine, wine storage and wine accessories – everything an oenophile could ask for. Many of the exceptional wines that are available for bidding hail from private wine cellars and provided a spectrum of rare types and vintages.

And best of all, the 2018 WineLover's Auction takes place again at the renowned Thunderbird Country Club in Rancho Mirage, a location synonymous with the desert lifestyle, whose inspired culinary team will prepare delectable appetizers & an exquisite meal for a wonderful, fun and entertaining evening.


All proceeds from WineLover's Auction go directly to supporting Coachella Valley Volunteers In Medicine, the only no-charge medical and dental clinic in the Coachella Valley serving adults, who for whatever reason, cannot get medical care anywhere else.

Thunderbird Country Club will open its doors on February 17, 2018 to WineLover's Auction guests, welcoming them to this much anticipated evening with a spectacular Sparkling Wine & Hors d'Oeuvres Reception as bidding starts on a wide selection of coveted items in the Silent Auction. Doors open at 5:30 immediately followed by reception and silent auction.


Get ready for another exciting auction. Last year's auction had some amazing offerings that kept bidders competing to take home the prize. Great varietals from wineries such as Cayuse, Nickel & Nickel, Leonetti and Ste. Michelle Estate and rare bottles of Bordeaux from iconic names such as Chateau Lafite-Rothchild, Chateau La Mission Haut Brion, Chateau Leoville Barton and Chateau Margaux kept bidding paddles flying high in the air.


WineLover's Auction, the perfect pairing of a wine auction and charity, is made possible in part by the support of our WineLover's Auction Sponsors who embrace the mission and efforts of Coachella Valley Volunteers In Medicine.
