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:

Once-in-a-Lifetime Evening with Château Figeac

October 26 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm

SOLD OUT

Here’s a little more about how truly exceptional this experience will be. Château Figeac is a leading light of Right Bank estates. While most of Saint-Émilion is situated on clay and limestone, leading to a Merlot driven blend, Figeac’s vineyards are planted on three gravel hills, allowing for a high proportion of Cabernet in their blends. The estate grows three varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot, and because of the three varietals and three terroirs, Figeac handles climate extremes well. The terroirs adapt to each vintage.

Frédéric Faye has transformed the estate’s winemaking techniques to produce a wine that is consistently amazing, regardless of the curveballs of each vintage. His winemaking techniques… well, we’ll let him divulge those secrets at the dinner.

And instead of including the tasting notes for each of the wines in this vertical, we’ve just invited a very special guest, Antonio Galloni, wine critic extraordinaire and creator of Vinous to offer his thoughts, wisdom, and ultra-exquisite tasting skills to the evening’s already stacked festivities. Antonio’s fondness for Figeac’s epic wines is obvious from his consistently praiseworthy, nearly perfect scores, so it will be quite a treat to sip alongside this legend while he shares comparisons and offers expertise.

The vertical lineup of wines is beyond exceptional including top vintages from Figeac’s recent portfolio alongside iconic vintages: 2018, 2016, 2015, 2010, 2009, 2005, 2000, 1995, 1989, 1982, and 1961. This is a unique opportunity to experience the power of the terroir and the development of these age-worthy wines. As a special treat, a lineup of Château Figeac’s delicate sister estate Château de Millery will round out the evening’s tasting.

The brand spanking new Virgin Hotel is the perfect setting for this spectacular evening. After dinner, guests will finish the night with a guitar pull featuring some of Nashville’s top songwriters in a private space within Virgin Hotels Nashville.

 If your mind hasn’t exploded yet, Château Figeac has upped its own game. In addition to a kick-ass dinner in Nashville, this lot ALSO included a jeroboam (5L) of 2009 Figeac.
