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:
Rudd’s Oakville Estate is considered one of the best places on Earth to grow Cabernet Sauvignon, and, coincidentally, Sam Lewis and Mona Hart’s patio is considered one of the best places on Earth to drink it!
Sam and Mona cordially invite the winners of this lot to their amazing home on Friday, September 20, 2019 for a fun-filled, Rudd-filled evening. They will be opening an 18 liter of 2003 Rudd Cabernet Sauvignon!
The last in a series of volcanic landslides created a small oasis of land in Napa, a strip of land that Leslie Rudd was fortunate enough to procure in 1996. the soil is iron-rich, creating a structure and complexity as stunning as it is unique.
This wine’s reddish/brown label is the color of the rustic, volcanic, rocky soils found in this part of the Oakville Corridor. Composed of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot, and 3% Malbec, it boasts an opaque purple color along with a sumptuous boquet of charcoal, scorched earth (reminiscent of Haut Brion), and intense black and blue fruits. Rich, opulent, and full-bodied, this 2003 is performing even better than it did early on. (RP 95)
A seriously stunning wine, a seriously impressive large format bottle, and a seriously picturesque patio are the perfect ingredients for a perfect September evening. Add the seriously talented Chef Kevin Ramquist of the Unicorn Nashville providing hors d’oeuvres… A party not to be missed!
