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:

Cinema Paradiso: An Italian Movie Night at Nicky’s Coal Fired

May 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm


Goodfellas, Roman Holiday, The Big Night, Cinema Paradiso… What do all these movies have in common, aside from being Italian theatrical classics? They will be featured as inspiration for Nashville Wine Auction’s big dinner party for 70 lucky bidders at Nicky’s Coal Fired.

Located in the trendy up and coming neighborhood of West Nashville and nestled into The Nations, Nicky’s Coal Fired opened in December 2016. The much awaited Italian restaurant made its debut serving red and white pies to hungry crowds of Nashvillians. Tony and Caroline Galzin certainly knocked this one out of the park! If you haven’t already looked it up, this might be the time to pull out your smart phone and do so (trust us, you’ll like what you see). On Friday, May 19, 2017, the Galzins are opening their restaurant for the winners of this lot, and they’ve invited a few of their friends to help with the festivities.

You know what they say about “too many cooks in the kitchen?” Well sometimes, that just isn’t the case. At least we don’t think so! The four, family-style courses will be designed by Galzin with movie-themed inspiration, but he’ll be helped by some crazy talented guest chefs including:

Matt Bolus, no stranger to the NWA scene, has taken Nashville by storm with his numerous accolades and star-studded 404 Kitchen. Guest Chef #1 is certainly a winner.

Next up are James Peisker and Chris Carter of Porter Road Butcher. Voted best butcher in Nashville, these two know a thing or two about meat – and cooking for that matter. These Chefs-turned-butchers noticed that with Nashville’s growing food scene, there was a lack of good, local meat, so they decided to open the city’s first ever whole animal butchery in East Nashville.

The cherry on top of this fabulous lineup of chefs is Leigh Omilinsky, famed pastry chef of Nico Osteria, who will be coming in from Chicago just for the occasion. Her reinvented tiramisu is legendary, and we are thrilled she is joining the team for this all-star night.

With wine from the elusive Nashville Wine Auction cellar, 70 folks who love to have a good time, and food that will be talked about for years, this party is sure to be just like Goodfellas, Roman Holiday, The Big Night and Cinema Paradiso… a classic!

All 70 seats available for this dinner sold at Pairings 2017 Auction.

Donated by Chef Tony Galzin, Nicky’s Coal Fired, Chef Matt Bolus, Chef James Peisker, Chef Chris Carter, Chef Leigh Omilinsky
