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:

Joseph Phelps Insignia Vertical Dinner in Memory of Phran Galante

January 15 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Phran Galante was a driving force for change. Through her tireless efforts, Phran was a pioneer in the animal welfare community, and devoted her life not only to saving animals’ lives, but to fighting for change to better Nashville at large. Recognized as a humanitarian, philanthropist and community pillar, she also devoted much of her time to supporting the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, raising money to better the lives of countless children, and the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC).

Though she passed away on September 23, 2019, after a long battle with lung cancer, Phran’s legacy and lifelong battle giving a voice to the voiceless is ever-present in the Nashville community.

“If she saw a need, regardless of what it was, she was able to either help solve the problem herself or put you in touch with somebody that could help you move along. She had a giving heart and that was her personality—she just wanted everybody to be joyous so that’s how she lived her life,” says Joe Galante, Phran’s devoted husband of thirty-five years and honored guest at l’Eté du Vin where this dinner was presented for auction.

“She said animals can’t speak for themselves, so we have to speak for them, and I think that’s always been her M.O. It could be about kids or it could be about animals; those people that can’t help themselves, that’s what we’re here to do.”

She looked inside, recognized the need and met it on its terms. It’s why she could help build hospitals, close shelters that euthanize the animals left there, make cancer patients feel safe in something so towering. And her heart was bottomless. It’s why her presence in Nashville made such a difference. It’s why there’s almost an echo in the city today, an imperceptible hollow sound where her heartbeat used to be.

This dinner honoring Phran’s life will be hosted by Sharon and Bill Piper at their lovely home with a vertical of Insignia wines from their cellar. It’s only fitting as Phran absolutely loved Insignia. The Pipers are past neighbors and longtime friends of Joe and Phran, and they’ve been planning this dinner for over 2 years now. Chef Burke Conley will prepare the food to go alongside a 12-year vertical of Joseph Phelps’ Insignia from 2006-2017.

Insignia, one of the most iconic wines of Napa Valley, has a track record of high scores and collectability, with insane drinkability alongside complexity and consistency. Though it is a wine that drinks well young, it can age magnificently. Let this dinner be a testament to that statement.
