    The festivities on Saturday begin with "porktail hour" hosted by event founders and Co-Chairs Valerie & Mike "ChiChi" Thompson, followed by a spirited outdoor cooking competition among winemakers, BBQ enthusiasts and great chefs. The evening continues with a silent auction and concludes with a "kicked-up" live auction featuring one-of-a-kind private wine estate experiences, collectible wines, luxury travel expeditions, fine jewelry and custom artwork.

    Throughout the evening, exclusive wines are poured by the winemakers for over 200 attendees.
