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:

Patrons may present a physical vaccination card or a photo of a vaccination card. COVID-19 tests should be dated-stamped PCR or antigen tests administered within 48 hours prior to the event. (Home tests will not be accepted.)

  • Masks are recommended when guests are not actively eating or drinking.
