We value storytelling as a space for people to listen and be heard, connect with others, embrace different perspectives, examine their own lives, and explore what it means to be human.

Wine on Wheels, New York City

For the third year in a row Jermaine Stone will be the live auctioneer at Wine on Wheels, New York City’s most exciting wine event for charity. They bring together over 125 of the city’s finest sommeliers that are serving over 200 fine wines and spirits from over 75 different wine regions. We expect over 500 people to fill City Winery for a day packed with fast track seminars, exclusive tastings, a live and silent auction, and of course the Grand Tasting that everyone anticipates all year. 

Wine on Wheels has gained prestige as the only wine event of its kind with all proceeds benefiting Wheeling Forward, a New York City-based nonprofit organization co-founded by Alex Elegudin and Yannick Benjamin, a paraplegic sommelier.
