Wine Events Calendar

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:

Celebrating the Life of a Legend — Jim Clendenen

February 19 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm


In 2021 the wine community lost a legend.  A visionary, Jim was instrumental in putting the Santa Barbara region on the map by cultivating an international reputation for fine Chardonnay and Pinot Noir since 1982. For more than 40 years his classically styled wines of balance, restraint, and longevity were countered by his larger-than-life personality. He was outspoken, articulate, intelligent, humorous, passionate and unfiltered in his beliefs. He was often the loudest voice in the room with the loudest shirts. He mentored many, influenced even more. His absence is keenly felt, but his legacy will continue.

A lifelong friend of Jim, Tom Black is honored to celebrate the life of a legend with a dinner for six at his home on Saturday, February 19, 2022. Jim was instrumental in creating Black by Black, Tom’s personal label, and their friendship was full of laughter, great wine, and shared experiences. Tom has selected exclusive wines from his cellar that represent the heart and soul of Jim Clendenen. He has invited Chef Cathy Lewis, another friend of Jim, and Chef Richard A. Bell to prepare some of Jim’s favorite foods for the occasion.

We pay tribute to Jim Clendenen: a friend of the Nashville Wine Auction, a driving force in Santa Barbara winemaking, and a true legend in the world of wine. We’ll miss you, Jim.
