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:

Message In A Bottle – Dinner with Wines from Sting & Trudie

November 1, 2019 @ 2:00 pm


“Wine is like a beautiful piece of music already written. An opera that the musician or the tenor has to perform. The notes are always the same, but the result is always different and often exciting. Every day I work to become a good interpreter of the grapes; grapes that with great care and sensibility are cultivated by using all the instruments, antique and modern, that allow me to express their quality.”

-Paolo Caciorgna, Winemaker

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.

About The Manning: Nashville’s most elegant condominium development, will be located on Woodmont Boulevard.  Amenities will include a wine room for private wine tastings, a full size kitchen for Chef demonstrations, a private dining room to host formal dinners for up to twenty guests, a salt water pool with pool pavilion, lush Page/Duke designed gardens, fitness and yoga areas, boardroom, guest suite, and a Concierge to make life even easier. The residences will feature 11 foot ceilings, tall windows, Christopher Peacock designed kitchens, and an outdoor kitchen on the balconies. Construction is under way and more than half of the project is sold.

Donated by Sting & Trudie Styler, Il Palagio, The Manning Condominium Project, John Lutz
