Très Bonne Année is a self-sustaining, nonprofit, charitable corporation which exists solely to raise funds for nonprofit organizations and to advance the arts, culture and education in Central Pennsylvania thus enhancing the region’s quality of life and economic vitality.
The organization’s primary focus is a series of wine-related events and activities. All activities operate within a framework of social and educational events, thereby stimulating an environment of “natural giving” by those who love and appreciate wine, food and the arts.
Toward that end, Très Bonne Année cultivates participation by the domestic and international wine communities to work in conjunction with business, restaurant, entertainment, and communication forums and individuals united in the common goal of advancing the arts.
Très Bonne Année, French for “a very good year,” is a series of wine and food events held annually in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Très Bonne Année has become one of the largest wine auctions for charity on the East Coast. The auction proceeds exclusively benefit Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts. Every year, a great wine personality is honored. Très Bonne Année is the first of its kind for Central Pennsylvania. Events include gala wine tastings, parties and dinners attended by nationally recognized food and wine authorities and enthusiasts.
With events designed for every level of knowledge and interest, you do not have to be a wine connoisseur to enjoy Très Bonne Année. The Vintners’ Tasting is the perfect place for novice enthusiasts to join experienced collectors for an educational event. The serious collector and world traveler will be excited to attend the Gala Auction and Dinner.
The Très Bonne Année events target individuals who enjoy wine, food and the arts!
