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:

Now You’ve Dunn it! Dunn Wine Dinner at Josephine

March 18 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

SOLD OUT

If you’ve ever been to one of our events, you know that we have an affinity for Dunn. And for good reason. Randy Dunn, Winemaking Rebel, has been making some of the best Napa Valley Cabs for over 30 years. One of the original pioneers in defining the area’s reputation, complete with cowboy hat, Dunn pours his ferocity and style into the essence of his wines. His love for Howell Mountain even led him to be instrumental in establishing it as a sub-AVA of Napa Valley. His son Mike handles the bulk of the winemaking these days, and the father-son duo continue to produce some of the most adored, age-worthy Cali Cabs out there.

Dunn wines have an amazing capacity for aging. In general,  the Napa bottling can drink well on release, but will really start strutting its stuff after 3-4 years, and age gracefully for 15-20 years in most vintages. The Howell Mountain bottling, conversely, is often more tightly wound in its youth. While drinkable with the right foods, it loves 5-7 years to start hitting its stride, and in the best vintages should be able to age 30-40+ years.

In fact, most of the early Howell Mountain Cab vintages are still going strong, and some of these wines are considered some of the greatest Cabs ever produced in Napa Valley! Dunn’s 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Trailer Vineyard is a small bottling made from a historic vineyard that was once a central component of the Howell Mountain Cabernet from the early days up until when it was replanted following the 2013 harvest. Its drinking window is projected for 2022-2042.

Guests will enjoy these wines from the impeccable cellar of Elise and Harvey Crouch and a culinary treat from Chef Andy Little of Kimberly and Jim Lewis’s Josephine.
