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:
We’re thrilled to celebrate Women in Wine this year, and some of our favorite women in wine wanted to get in on the action!
Two powerhouses of the wine world are coming to Nashville on March 22, 2019 for one fun evening! Alessia Antinori, 26th generation winemaking legend of Marchesi Antinori, and Jamie Pollack, Global Managing Director of Zachys Wine Auctions, want you to join them for dinner accompanied by a Solaia vertical!
Solaia is one of the leading wines of the famous Tuscan winery and the great passion of the Antinori family. Coming from a vineyard with a southwestern exposure situated at the Tignanello estate, Solaia is produced exclusively in exceptional vintages and it represents a true symbol of the most prestigious Italian oenology. Born in 1978 through the family’s passion, care, attention and research, the initial blend was 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc, which was also repeated for the 1979 vintage. In the following vintages, Antinori introduced 20% Sangiovese grapes and made some corrections, thanks to the addition of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes, until reaching the current composition.
Some of the vintages included are 1997, 1998, 2005, 2009 and the 100-point 2015!
Sharon and Bill Piper’s stunning home will set the scene, and Nashville’s beloved Chef Matt Bolus will be bringing the heat in the kitchen to match all the female power in the room.
As if that isn’t enough, at the dinner, Jamie will offer one lucky guest a VIP table at one of Zachys’ next wine auctions in New York City or Hong Kong, where you’ll have lunch and an exclusive rare wine tasting while millions of dollars of wine is sold by Fritz Hatton!
