Barrel to Barrel – Grand Auction

November 12, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

For over 30 years, the Memphis Wine + Food Series has been the premier fundraising event for Memphis’ art museum. Held annually, the series unites hundreds of art, food and wine lovers in support of the Brooks’ world-class education programs.

This year, the Memphis Wine + Food Series is making a comeback as Barrel to Barrel, a single party and grand auction celebrating not only fine wine and food but also craft bourbons, and – of course – art.

2022’s Barrel to Barrel will bring together renowned chefs, prominent vintners, outstanding distillers, and highly collected artists. Leading collectors and some of the world’s most prestigious wineries and distilleries donate spirits from their private cellars as highly prized auction items.

Attracting hundreds of wine, bourbon, and food enthusiasts and industry tastemakers, Barrel to Barrel is designed to appeal to a diverse audience of affluent consumers of luxury lifestyle goods and services, as well as to guests who care about expanding arts education in the community. Featured Wineries

For our inaugural Barrel to Barrel, the Brooks is delighted to spotlight Ink Grade Estate and Burgess Cellars, two of the distinguished Napa wineries in the Gaylon Lawrence portfolio.

Rooted firmly in the Napa Valley, Ink Grade makes single-vineyard wines of remarkable intensity and grace. They are the product of rugged terrain perched atop the VacaRange, on the east side of Howell Mountain.

It is a heritage that defines special wine estates and inspires our founders, Master Sommelier and ManagingPartner Carlton McCoy and the Lawrence Family. Established in 2020, Lawrence Wine Estates tells the stories behind family-owned wineries and honors their legacy.

Burgess Cellars is the culmination of 150 years of farming tradition on the vertiginous slopes of Howell Mountain. From the Swiss-Italian ancestors who first planted our Estate Sorenson Vineyard to now, we strive to create wines of elegance and finesse that honor our roots in the Napa Valley.
