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:

Priceless Dinner With Promontory and Penultimate

January 20 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


It is safe to say that we here at the Nashville Wine Auction are obsessed with wine dinners, and we’re guessing most of you are too. With good reason… We’ve got a dinner for fifteen couples that qualifies as the pinnacle of wine dinners.

The scene? The brand new Four Seasons Hotel Nashville. The wines? Promontory and Penultimate from the cellar of Pam & Steve Taylor. The special guests? Proprietor Will Harlan, Winemaker David Cilli and a surprise special guest. The overwhelming sense of joy and excitement when attending this dinner? Priceless.

No one was surprised when one of the most historic vintners in Napa Valley, Bill Harlan, launched a new winery in 2009. He came across the stunning region of Promontory in the 1980s while hiking along Oakville’s southwestern borderlands. Thus, Promontory came to life, with hints at wildness and a vein of minerality under bright red fruit and tight layers that relax through the years. Now, Penultimate hovers near that profound character, far more than a so-called “second.” It plays a critical role of its own in relation to the pinnacle that is Promontory. In fact, in a remarkable way, it helps elevate the wine it aspires to be.

Promontory, as prestigious a Napa winery as you can get, and its younger sibling Penultimate, a standout star in its own right, are the highlights of the evening: a vertical of both wines, from very first vintage until 2018 release, flanked by Krug and Yquem. The chef at the Four Seasons will prepare a fabulous meal to pair with the lineup, set within the walls of Nashville’s swankiest new hotel. Now we certainly can’t forget our special guests for the evening. Will and David will bring all the Promontory and Penultimate expertise, ready to lead everyone through the incredible tasting.
