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:

Feeling Optimistic About Brunch

May 20 @ 11:30 am - 5:00 pm


Join your friends for brunch on the third Saturday in May for a tour de force through the world of wine, lip-smacking seafood, and perfect pairings at The Optimist. Slurp oysters with Sancerre! Master Meursault and Mâconnais! Sip through Sicily and the Sonoma Coast! The Optimist might say it best: “Where the sunshine gladdens, the rain falls to bless, and there, beneath the blue sky, we dream of old friends and new adventures.”

Texas-born and bred Ford Fry is a James Beard Award semi-finalist and Eater’s Empire builder of the year. Chef Fry extended that empire to Nashville with several dining concepts including the beloved seafood restaurant, The Optimist, in Germantown.

This brunch will take place above the restaurant in the gorgeous Le Loup with its custom underwater mural and vintage setting. Located at the top of an unassuming staircase, Le Loup is a hidden gem.

Join your friends for this Spring brunch celebration on Saturday, May 20, 2023. Chef Zane Dearien, who built his chops at Hotel 21c in Bentonville, Gray and Dudley, and Husk, will create a mouth-watering experience for these beautiful wines.
