Vintage & Vine, the fine wine and food festival and silent auction, is the main annual fund-raiser for Strawbery Banke Museum. Scheduled for 5-7:30 pm (4 pm admission for VIP) on Saturday, September 10th, the event is championed by the Board of Trustees and takes place when the museum is at its finest, burnished to perfection by the season and the thousands of visitors who’ve put Strawbery Banke at the top of the TripAdvisor list of ‘things to do.’

Stroll the historic neighborhood when the gardens are at their high-summer peak
~ Sample and order wonderful wines
~ Savor the culinary delights of the Star Chefs and restaurant partners
~ Shop the products and services showcased by raffle and silent auction donors

Vintage & Vine is one of the harbingers of the harvest season and offers a full evening of entertainment under sparkling September skies. Premier wine vendors Horizon Beverage Company and Perfecta wines lead a group of fifteen other wine distributors to offer dozens of wines to sample and to order. Star Chefs from Atlantic Grill, Blue Mermaid Island Grill, Demeters Steakhouse, Poco’s and Portsmouth Brewery present innovative bites from grills at “center-stage” while dozens of the seacoast’s best chefs present their best “grazing” specialties. The wine raffle and silent auction of items ranging from trips to ‘behind the scene’ tours to shows and home décor, add to the excitement of the evening – and the funds raised for Strawbery Banke educational programs and preservation efforts. Cuppa Joe provides the musical accompaniment of jazz and blues under the September sky.

“Vintage & Vine helps ensure the continued success of Strawbery Banke for schoolchildren and daily visitors, the skaters who enjoy the outdoor rink, and all who benefit from the Heritage House Program,” said Lawrence J. Yerdon, president & CEO of Strawbery Banke. “As the single main fund-raiser for the museum, Vintage & Vine brings life and energy back to the Puddle Dock neighborhood.”

The Vintage & Vine Auction and Raffle features selections ranging from vacations and sporting events to fine art. Special auction items include gift certificates from some of the Seacoast-area’s finest restaurants, spa packages, children’s parties, “behind the scenes” tours with Seacoast celebrities, fishing excursions, Red Sox tickets, golf at area clubs, landscaping consultation, artwork, antique maps, tickets to performing arts events and a one year parking pass for the Strawbery Banke lot. The Auction offers selections suitable for groups of friends, family, as gifts and for personal relaxation. The Vintage & Vine Raffle offers the chance to win a tower of fine wines and a bouquet of lottery tickets.
