WineFest No. 14 is a one-of-a-kind, two-day epicurean celebration to benefit the internationally renowned University of Minnesota Department of Pediatrics and University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital, where physicianresearchers develop and deliver innovative treatments and cures for childhood diseases.

One of the year’s most spectacular charity events, WineFest attracts more than 2,000 guests. Since 1995 it has raised more than $7 million for children’s health research and care at the University.

This year’s event, which will be held at the Depot in Minneapolis, features an educational wine tasting, gourmet cuisine from top Twin Cities restaurants, enticing auctions, rousing entertainment, and exclusive opportunities to clink your wine glass with luminaries from Market Watch’s Wine Brand of the Year and our honorary winemaster, Chateau Ste. Michelle.

*WineFest No. 14 benefits research, education, and service in the world-renowned Department of Pediatrics at the University of Minnesota Medical School. For event details, tickets, sponsorship opportunities, and auction updates, visit
