Centered_LogoWhen I heard about the bottles of wine being sold at the Telluride AIDS Benefit Auction this weekend, I became green with cellar envy.

Saturday March 1, 2014 models will strut down the runway showcasing the bottles of wine with their designer duds. The moment the last model walks, a live auction ensues and the bidding begins!

Every bottle is special and wine-collector worthy. The wines are almost too good to drink… I said, almost. All of the wines being sold have had a wine score of between 94-100 points! There are interesting sizes of bottles being sold such as Magnums and Jeroboams.

A taster of the caliber of wine being sold:

  • Chateau Margaux 1986
  • Tenuta dell’ Ornellaia:Masseto 1996
  • Chateau Haut Brion 2005
  • Chateau de Beaucastel: Chateu Neuf de Pape 2010 (Magnum)
  • Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2004

The auction also showcases other items aside from the magnificent bottles of collector wines.

Since 1994, Telluride AIDS Benefit has donated over $1,800,000 toward HIV/AIDS education, advocacy, clinical care and NGOs.  That is a cause worth collecting fine wines for, wouldn’t you agree?

What TAB stands for:

“Telluride AIDS Benefit (TAB)  is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to fight HIV/AIDS by heightening awareness, as well as generating financial support for educational programs and client care.
