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:
Nashville Wine Auction is invested in the health of our guests and the overall community. All guests of Nashville Wine Auction events have the option to wear a mask anytime they are indoors. Please do not attend a Nashville Wine Auction event if you are not feeling well or have symptoms, irrespective of your vaccine status. If you have a condition that weakens your immune system or take certain medications, you may need to take extra precautions even if you are fully vaccinated, as instructed by your doctor. We care deeply about our community of supporters, cancer survivors, volunteers, and staff, and encourage everyone to take the necessary precautions for their health.
Harlan is a name synonymous with the upper echelon of Napa’s finest. When Bill Harlan first set out to develop the estate, he based his techniques on his time in Europe where he visited some of the great European estates, all the while taking copious notes. He fell in love with Bordeaux and was taken in with the quality and consistency of the wines from these estates. Bill Harlan has achieved his goal of becoming California’s First Growth, based on the quality, price and status his wine has in the marketplace. All that, and they sell futures too!
Attendees will enjoy Harlan wines from the cellar of Pam and Steve Taylor, including vintages 2002-2013 to be poured FROM MAGNUM, along with The Maiden from 2001-2010. For style points, there’s a Krug Brut to
start and a 1986 d’Yquem for dessert.
You’d think that would be enough for us, but we just had to kick it up one more notch. Preparing the pairings for the evening will be none other than the Maestro of Pasta himself, Scott Conant. You may recognize him as the host of The Food Network’s 24 Hour Restaurant Battle and Chopped or from his notorious cooking at Scarpetta, L’Impero, and the recently-opened FUSCO. If you’ve been to NYC, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, or Miami, chances are you’ve heard of him.
