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:

On Saturday, October 12, 2019, ten of the most FANatical bidders will be the envy of all of Nashville. They’ll dine with hosts Eric Decker, NFL football player (Broncos, Titans, Patriots) and his fabulous wife, country singer Jessie James Decker, at this once in a lifetime California Cult wine dinner. With such preeminent hosts, it’s only fitting that the details of this dinner receive equal FANfare.
We’ve cultivated quite the lineup of wines for this dinner, donated by some of NWA’s rockstar collectors. These wines are the crème of the cult, if you will. They’re big, audacious, nearly impossible to come by, and perfectly suited for this FANtastic dinner. On the white side, you’ll be treated to a Marcassin and Ghost Horse Chardonnays. On the red side are some of the biggest names in the biz. Schrader, Bryant, Harlan Estate, Colgin, Scarecrow, Screaming Eagle, and even a very highly regarded Grenache from Sine Qua Non.
Check out this FANtasy lineup:
> Ghost Horse Chardonnay 2016
> Marcassin Chardonnay 2009 (98 RP)
> Araujo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard 2011 (98 JS)
> Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
> Colgin Cellars IX Estate 2005 (98 RP)
> Dana Estates Lotus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 (98 RP)

Chef Tim Kohler will take on the valiant task of creating a menu to pair with these unbelievable wines. There’s truly no one better suited for the job… we are all fans. For a decade Kohler worked for national restaurant tycoon and CNBC’s Billion Dollar Buyer, Tilman Fertita. Working with Fertita, he was able to implement his love of culinary art, restaurant design, development and restaurant operations in a multitude of concepts and takeovers in markets such as Houston, Las Vegas and Manhattan. After earning numerous national accolades, including a Michelin Award, Kohler relocated to Nashville where he helms Ludlow & Prime and other hospitality ventures.
From Harlan to SQN, Ghost Horse to Screaming Eagle… This dinner has got heavy hitter after heavy hitter, not to mention a seasoned chef and Nashville’s “It Couple” as hosts. Whatever you are a fan of, this dinner will tickle your FANcy.
