ShuttleCork 2023

Celebrate a Decade of Fine Wine & Fine Art

It’s our tenth anniversary, which means ShuttleCork is pulling out all the stops to make sure this year’s event is one you’ll never forget! Join us for two stellar nights of food, wine, and fundraising, supporting education, community, and access for all, at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. You will meet vintners, taste fine wines and food, and participate in the live auction featuring rare wines, luxury travel, and one-of-a-kind experiences.

Choose your ShuttleCork experience: Join us for both nights, including Thursday’s Winemaker Dinners in private homes, plus Friday’s Grand Tasting, Live Auction and ShuttleCork After Dark. Or, simply attend the Friday-night event only.

Whichever choice you make, we appreciate your support. We look forward to seeing you at the museum’s largest fundraiser of the year!
