About TBA

Très Bonne Année is a self-sustaining, nonprofit, charitable corporation which exists solely to raise funds for nonprofit organizations and to advance the arts, culture and education in Central Pennsylvania thus enhancing the region’s quality of life and economic vitality.

The organization’s primary focus is a series of wine-related events and activities. All activities operate within a framework of social and educational events, thereby stimulating an environment of “natural giving” by those who love and appreciate wine, food and the arts.

Toward that end, Très Bonne Année cultivates participation by the domestic and international wine communities to work in conjunction with business, restaurant, entertainment, and communication forums and individuals united in the common goal of advancing the arts.

Très Bonne Année, French for “a very good year,” is a series of wine and food events held annually in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Très Bonne Année has become one of the largest wine auctions for charity on the East Coast. The auction proceeds exclusively benefit Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts. Every year, a great wine personality is honored. Très Bonne Année is the first of its kind for Central Pennsylvania. Events include gala wine tastings, parties and dinne rs attended by nationally recognized food and wine authorities and enthusiasts.

With events designed for every level of knowledge and interest, you do not have to be a wine connoisseur to enjoy Très Bonne Année. The Vintners’ Tasting is the perfect place for novice enthusiasts to join experienced collectors for an educational event. The serious collector and world traveler will be excited to attend the Gala Auction and Dinner.

The Très Bonne Année events target individuals who enjoy wine, food and the arts!

2017 HONORED GUEST

“For nearly a century, the Opici name on a bottle of wine has stood for high quality, consistency, and value. We prided ourselves on a commitment to building relationships with our customers, suppliers, and employees based on trust and common purpose. Our mission is to continue to offer the highest quality wines at the best possible prices.”

– Hubert Opici, Chairman

Opici Wines is an importer and producer with of fine wines, artisanal spirits, and craft beers from around the globe. The portfolio consists of more than 50 brands offering wines for every palate and budget, each of which represents a great value to the consumer.

Founded in 1913 and re-established upon the repeal of Prohibition in 1934, it was not until 2010 that Opici Wines began a major transformation. With long-standing, market-leading Italian brands like Cesari and Carpineto as the foundation, Opici Wines sought cutting-edge producers from Chile (De Martino), Argentina (Ruca Malen), Spain (Vivanco) and France (Notre Dame de Cousignac).

The company strengthened its position in the industry through the creation of Market Street Spirits in 2014, a spirits division which produces and imports hand-crafted spirits and beers from around the world.

Opici Wines also launched several proprietary brands, such as Auspicion and Julia James from California and LaLuca from Italy, adding to our production portfolio which includes classic selections under the Opici label, such as Homemade Barberone, Burgundy, and Chianti.

Our portfolio is represented nationally through our distributor partners.

From its inception, Opici has been family-owned and -operated.  Although the fourth-generation is now at the helm, “American Wine Legend” Hubert Opici remains actively involved.

Opici Wines was named “Importer of the Year” in 2014 by Wine Enthusiast Magazine in their annual Wine Star Awards.
