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:

Nashville Wine Auction is invested in the health of our guests and the overall community. All guests of Nashville Wine Auction events have the option to wear a mask anytime they are indoors. Please do not attend a Nashville Wine Auction event if you are not feeling well or have symptoms, irrespective of your vaccine status. If you have a condition that weakens your immune system or take certain medications, you may need to take extra precautions even if you are fully vaccinated, as instructed by your doctor. We care deeply about our community of supporters, cancer survivors, volunteers, and staff, and encourage everyone to take the necessary precautions for their health.
An Evening with Billy Weiss and the Expressive & Authentic Wines of North Berkeley Imports
April 1 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Many wine lovers will tell you about “the” moment, where a casual interest in wine turned into an all-consuming passion. Perhaps it happened during a trip to France, at a small restaurant where the local wine was a revelation; perhaps it was a shared bottle with a character so profound it turned upside-down everything you thought you knew about the transformation of grape into wine.
North Berkeley Imports is the maker of moments. They are that crucial connection between the talented growers who toil the soil and the passionate individuals who applaud and respect their toil. In substance, they procure expressive, authentic wines and shepherd them to market; in spirit, they unite passions and palates across cultures and oceans. It just may be the best job in the world.
This exquisite affair is happening at the beautiful home of Loren Chumley and Scott Peterson on Friday, April 1, 2022. Joining in the party (and bringing the Burgundy) is Billy Weiss from North Berkeley Imports. For more than three decades Billy has been a steadfast presence in fine wine retail and European wine imports. He expanded North Berkeley’s import portfolio to include select French producers and grower Champagnes, as well as fine Italian wines from leading wine regions.
Billy’s guiding philosophy has remained constant over the years: the company’s grower-partners (more than 100 dynamic, talented growers from France and Italy) are the foundation of North Berkeley’s success. Billy divides his time between Memphis, Tennessee where he lives with his wife, Jean, and Europe, visiting producers personally in France and Italy. It’s going to be one extraordinary lineup!
Yet another favorite Chef of the Nashville Wine Auction, Joe Townsend, will create the pairings for this delectable meal. You’ve recently experienced Joe’s talents at 360 Bistro and Pairings 2020. The stars have aligned for 20 Burgundy lovers who raised their paddle and to attend.
