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:

Five Decades at the Highest Heitz

November 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm


When making a list of Napa’s most distinctive and collectible wines, Heitz Martha’s is top of the list. When Joe and Alice Heitz founded Heitz Cellar in 1961, they knew they had stuck gold. Martha’s Vineyard (owned by the May family, farming their vineyard since the early 1960s) is one of the more recognizable vineyards in all of the Napa Valley.

This vineyard has been producing high end Cabernet Sauvignon for Heitz for decades, and in 1966, Joe made the decision to bottle this wine as a single vineyard because of its own unique characteristics. He was one of the earlier Napa Vintners to bottle a single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.

Ten lucky winners will get the chance to taste through FIVE decades of Heitz. From 1965 to 2012, this vertical will take you to the highest Heitz.
