A Toast for the Gold Coast, Buy-A-Spot California Wine Dinner

August 17 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm


When Pamela and Tony Cmelak decide to pluck perfection from their cellar to create the epic California wine dinner, your ears should perk up, your mouth should water and your paddle hand should start itching.

This collection of Sparkling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and more will take you on a grand tour of California without having to board a plane. Eleven (11) lucky couples will join Pamela and Tony for dinner at E3 Chophouse on Saturday, August 17, 2024, to try this fantastic lineup of bottles paired with mouthwatering fare.

Longtime supporters of Nashville Wine Auction, the Cmelaks have never shied away from generosity, and always bring their A game to each dinner they host. Abundance flows with the bottles, food, and merriment when they are in the host seats. Now is the time to dip into this Pairings tradition and visit the Cmelak cellar through one of their specially curated dinners.
