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:

Super Tuscan Showdown: Ornelliaia vs. Sassicaia

March 18, 2017 @ 6:00 pm


Held at the home of Sharon and Bill Piper, this will be an exquisite vertical tasting of Ornellaia and Sassicaia with wines provided by Pam and Steve Taylor. Combined with an incredible dinner prepared by Chef Hal Holden-Bache of Lockeland table, this event is rare indeed.

First, the incredible Sassicaia. One of the most sought after wines in the world. A beautiful representation of Tuscan wines and big robust flavors. So what better to taste alongside these Sassicaia wines than the formidable Ornellaia? Obsessed with perfection, this wine is another incredible attention grabber, and its reputation speaks for itself within each bottle.

Truly an event, Chef Hal Holden-Bache will enhance the tasting with a luscious dinner. Lockeland Table focuses on the community it comes from as does Chef Holden-Bache’s cooking. Fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients will round out this dinner from start to finish.

In this Super Tuscan showdown, Sassicaia and Ornellaia wines from the years 2001 through 2012 will be tasted side by side.
