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:
A Pisoni Party is happening at Loren Chumley and Scott Peterson’s house.
Mark Pisoni is coming to Nashville to showcase some of his best juice. If you haven’t yet tasted the perfect Pinot and captivating Chardonnay from this Santa Lucia Highland superstar, let us give a bit of background on this amazing wine.
“Gary Pisoni, and his vineyard, are respectively the rock star and Grand Cru site of the Santa Lucia Highlands.” –Robert M Parker, Jr.
Winemaker son Jeff and grape grower son Mark created the Pisoni label, releasing the first estate Pinot Noir in 1998. A second label, Lucia, debuted in 2000. Pisoni fruit quickly became highly prized in California and Pisoni Vineyard put Santa Lucia Highlands on the map, becoming one of California’s true ‘cult’ vineyards. Word on the street is that the original vines were cuttings from a famous Domaine in Vosne-Romanee, now referred to as the Pisoni selection or “clone.”
The Pisoni family produces just one spectacular Pinot Noir each year under their label, and total production ranges from 500 to 800 cases annually. Pam & Steve Taylor have generously shared FIFTEEN MAGNUMS of Pisoni Pinot (eleven from the estate and four vintages of Garys’ Vineyard Pinot Noir), along with four vintages of Pisoni Chardonnay. It’s going to be one heck of a lineup!
Yet another favorite Chef of the Nashville Wine Auction, Joe Townsend, will create the pairings for this five-course meal. You’ve recently experienced Joe’s talents at 360 Bistro and Pairings 2020.
This dinner features the following wines:
