A Luxurious Evening Of Wine And Design: GM And Cadillac Sponsor 31st Annual Detroit International Wine Auction To Benefit CCS

DETROIT, Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- World-class wines, automobiles and art converge on October 20 when General Motors and Cadillac present "The Art of Wine," the 31 st Annual Detroit International Wine Auction (DIWA). The event, which benefits Detroit's College for Creative Studies, will be held for the first time at the GM Design Center.

Chairing the auction and gala are Edward T. Welburn, Jr., vice president, GM Global Design and CCS trustee; and his wife, Rhonda D. Welburn of the law firm Dickinson Wright PLLC. Organizers hope to exceed the $1.4 million raised last year to fund undergraduate scholarships at CCS and art classes for at-risk youth in Detroit.

Guests will get a rare glimpse inside the GM Design Center and adjacent Design Dome, internationally recognized for their midcentury Modern architecture.

"The College for Creative Studies is such a jewel in Detroit's creative economy, and among the premier automotive and transportation design schools in the world," said Welburn. "During GM Design's 85th anniversary this past June, we celebrated design innovation and its power to differentiate great brands. This event helps make it possible to attract, educate and retain a new generation of designers who will lead our global industry into the future."

Winemaker, Manuel Louzada of Numanthia – known for its iconic, award-winning wines from Toro in northwestern Spain – is this year's featured vintner.  The Numanthia Estate is owned by LVMH, world leader of luxury goods which also includes a unique portfolio of prestigious wine and spirits brands, such as Dom Perignon, Moet & Chandon, Chateau Cheval Blanc, Cloudy Bay, Newton Vineyard, Belvedere and Hennessy.

Numanthia's powerful yet elegant wines are produced from Tinta de Toro, a single varietal from the Tempranillo grape family.  The Numanthia Estate's first vineyards were planted in 1880, and Numanthia's Termanthia wine, for example, is produced from grapes grown on ungrafted, pre-phylloxera vines that are more than 120 years old.
