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:
Join Us! In addition to our three main events, the calendar below also outlines some of the dinners, parties, and wine events sold at our auctions. You may discover a few openings at these wine experiences available for purchase. If you want to know more about us and our events sign-up for our event emails
PLEASE NOTE: Due to Nashville’s Safer at Home initiative in response to COVID-19, we are in the process of rescheduling all April, May, June, July & August events.
Ten guests will have the rare opportunity to taste the wines of Sting and his wife Trudie Styler. Sting and Trudie bought the Il Palagio estate in 1999 and have transformed the rundown property into a respected vineyard.
In the late 1700s, the Martelli family purchased the property and as their wealth grew, so did the estate. In 1819 they sold to the Countess Carlotta Barbolani of Montauto, the widow of the Duke of San Clemente and it remained in this family’s hands for some 150 years. When Sting and Trudie first came across the estate in 1999, it had by then fallen into a state of disrepair. They set about the task of lovingly restoring the house, the outbuildings and the land to their former glory.
Il Palagio’s Tuscan wines are fruit forward, pure and uncomplicated. They are modern, well made and have received rave reviews from publications such as Wine Spectator. Many of the wines are uniquely named after Sting’s songs.
On Friday, November 1, 2019 ten people will enjoy an elegant evening hosted by LaRawn Rhea, Marsha Simoneaux, and Beth Molteni of The Manning Condominium project (Richard Rhea-Developer).
If you know these women, you’ll know this dinner party will be exquisite.
Your wine host for the evening is Tony Sasa, head of global sales for Il Palagio. Sasa will tell the stories behind the wines created by Sting and Trudie while you enjoy the beautiful Crater Hill setting in the home of John Lutz.
Sting and Trudie are pleased to partner with Nashville Wine Auction. This is a rare opportunity to get to know Il Palagio and might lead to an invitation to the Tuscan estate.
