The Conscious Collection, an auction to raise money for restaurants and bars in need, will be held by Zachys on Friday. It includes more than 100 lots of exceptional wines, spirits and over-the-top experiences like dinner for eight at Château Margaux, another with Christian Moueix at Dominus, three bottles of 2016 Screaming Eagle, and truffle hunting for four in Piedmont, Italy, with a stay at the Ceretto estate. Sponsored by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits and Wine Spectator, the auction will donate the money to the Barstool Fund for hospitality-industry applicants, administered by the nonprofit 30-Day Fund, which has been raising money nationwide. Online bidding is open, and the live (virtual) auction will begin on Friday at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Absentee bids must be submitted by 5:45 p.m. on Friday. For most of the lots that involve travel, winners will have a year to fulfill the experience, unless specified otherwise. So far, bidding has started at about $500. To participate, bidders must first register.
