You have the chance to win 50 varied and superb bottles of wine while supporting the Asheville Symphony’s Music in the Schools program in our 2023 Asheville Amadeus Wine Raffle!

This remarkable collection from the cellars of Asheville Symphony’s supporters has a market value of more than $4,200 and includes a variety of whites, reds, rosés, and sparklings from Bordeaux, Burgundy, Tuscany, and California’s Sonoma Coast & Anderson Valley, among other terroirs.

Standouts include a half case of Bordeaux selections from Château Pontet-Canet, a 2013 Rivers-Marie Therriot Vineyard Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (valued at $251), and a half case of Turley Wine Cellars’ blockbuster Zinfandels from across California. You will be prepared for a momentous celebration with several bottles of Veuve Clicquot and a Champagne Christian Gosset Brut Grand Cru. 


Proceeds from the Wine Raffle will go towards Music in the Schools, which serves second, third and fourth graders in Asheville City and Buncombe County School systems. Orchestra members of brass, woodwind and string quintets hold a school program where they demonstrate their instruments for the students.

Raffle tickets are $50, and proceeds go towards ASO’s Music in the Schools. 


The winner will be drawn at random during the Asheville Amadeus Gala on May 19, 2023. You must be 21 years old to enter, and you do not need to be present to win. If you are not present at the drawing, you will be notified by phone or email with details on how to claim your prize! See the full wine list here.

The raffle winner will be responsible to pick up the wine at the Asheville Symphony offices, 27 College Place, Suite 100, Asheville, NC, 28801 after May 24th, 2023. The winner should contact the ASO to schedule a pick up time.
