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:

Italian Wine Lover’s Dream Dinner at Giovanni’s

March 25 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm


If there’s any country in the world that knows how to throw a dinner, it’s Italy. From the wine to the food, everything vibes in seamless conviviality and passion for gastronomical delight. The lucky winners of this lot will join Anthony and Pamela Cmelak on Friday, March 25 at Giovanni’s for seven courses of expertly paired Italian wines. From start to finish, the evening will have you travel through Italy’s finest wine-growing regions and taste from top producers. It’s all that and a box of cannolis.

One of the best Italian restaurants in Nashville, Giovanni Ristorante is in a house resembling a Tuscan villa with genuine Italian flare! In addition to the ambiance, your Italian dream will explode with the authentic cuisine overseen by Chef Giovanni Pinato. So, the food pairing? Bellisimo!
