Do you love wine?

So do we - Please consider donating wine to the Joaquin Miller Auction

The Fall Auction is our largest fundraiser of the year, and it’s the great work of the entire JM Community that makes this event so successful for our school.

Wine is the most sought-after item at our auction, and we’d love to add your gift of a bottle (or seven) to our catalog.

The best performers are wines with “auction appeal”—well known labels, interesting wineries, large formats - or just your favorite bottle! Don’t have a wine collection at home? Vintage Berkeley is generously offering a 20% discount on all bottles purchases for the auction. They will also recommend groupings that will go well at the auction and fit your budget. For example, a tour of the Sonoma coast or Napa reds.

Vintage Berekeley is located at 2949 College Ave in Berkeley. You can contact them at 510-549-9501 or

Just make sure they know it is for JOAQUIN MILLER ELEMENTARY AUCTION and we will pick it up and take care of the rest.
If you have bottles of wine to donate, we'll have a table available at Family Reading Night (tomorrow 10/2) where you can drop off your wine,  or send an email to and we'll follow up to make your donation easy! (Minimum value $20)

For every $25 worth of wine each family contributes by October 31, you will be entered in a raffle for a free child’s outing with his/her teacher. This means you will have first dibs on a spot at a teacher-led outing...before the auction begins.
