From one summer’s eve in 1980 until now, we have hosted wine events and auctions in the Nashville, TN area to raise money for the battle against cancer. What started with Un Eté du Vin, “A Summer of Wine,” has grown into a successful non-profit organization known as Nashville Wine Auction.
Generosity of Spirit: The funds raised at our events are donated to non-profit organizations for cancer research, patient treatment and family support. Because we are passionate about our community, all of our proceeds stay in Tennessee. If you would love to partake in an evening of glamour, generosity, good cheer and great wine, consider one of our auction events:
Join Us! In addition to our four main events, the events calendar below also outlines some of the dinners, parties, and wine events sold at our auctions. You may discover a few openings at these wine experiences available for purchase. If you want to know more about us or receive information about upcoming events sign up for our event emails.
It’s the Battle of the Pinots: In one corner, stands the grandfather of Pinot Noir, the classic, impossible to replicate Burgundy. His calm, classic, and rounded personality make him a force to be reckoned with. In the other corner, stands the scrappy newcomer, the New World Pinot Noir. Fresh with possibility and packing quite a punch, this energetic player brings a newfound vibrancy to the competition. Fans of both contenders agree that this is a match-up worth experiencing… and 21 lucky spectators will get a ringside seat to the Pinot tasting of a lifetime!
The lunch takes place on Saturday, April 1 at the swanky Union Common, which is opening for lunch just for us. The sixteen contenders come from Pam and Steve Taylor’s renowned cellar.
