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 November 2, 2019 at Marsh House, a veritable Judgment of Paris dinner is going to take place. It’s France versus California in a six-course face-off that will go down in history books.
The full vintage lineup is below, but here’s a short recap of what the evening will entail:
The bubbles course is, plot twist, Rosé. Pol Roger versus Schramsberg in the battle of the pink bubbles. Next up is Chardonnay, where Fevre, Marcassin, and Aubert are bringing in their big guns to battle Bouchard’s Corton-Charlemagne. We move into the Pinot Noir challenge where it’s Clos de Vougeot from Nicolas Potel against Marcassin’s Marcassin Vineyard Pinot.
Course four is the Rhône varietals, with two contenders from Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Paul Avril and Vieux Telegraphe) versus Saxum’s James Berry and Shafer’s Relentless blend. Rounding out the reds is the Bordeaux blends. It’s Château Angelus and Mouton against Duckhorn and Opus One.
We’ll round out the evening’s competition with Yquem ‘96 and Dolce’s Late Harvest Semillon.
With each course accompanied by Marsh House’s unique southern seafood cuisine it’s bound to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
