How does the bidding work?

Bidding Reward System

Every bid you place, win or lose, makes a difference in children’s health care! That is why we created the Bidding Reward System to track all your bids and reward you for all of the support you provide. The rewards are based on the total number of bids set and correlate to a tier level. Each level unlocks a new reward and a complimentary badge to show the community how much you care.

Bid Range: 0-7
Reward: THANK YOU! You’ve made the first step in making the difference in a child’s life. Keep bidding to ensure you attain a case or more of extraordinary wines and become a champion for children’s health care!

Custom Programs

You can arrange for proxy bidding for your account by calling us at (541) 789-5025. Bids will be in $20 increments up to your limit.

Custom Label
Many of the wines purchased will be labeled with a premier Oregon Wine Experience® label. You can customize that label for your business or family if you purchase either a minimum 10 case shares from one barrel or an entire lot.

Distribution
When your wine is released and ready for distribution, Asante Foundation or the winemaker will notify you to arrange a pick up date. If we are unsuccessful in reaching you on the first attempt, we will try at least two additional times. After one year from the date of your first notification and a minimum of three attempts, if there is still no response, the donor relinquishes the rights to the wine and it will become the property of Asante Foundation.

Lot Shipment

Sales & Payment
ALL SALES ARE FINAL! Payment is due at the conclusion of the auction.
