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:

PLEASE NOTE: In response the current pandemic, we are in the process of rescheduling all large, in-person events from April 2020 to the end of 2020.
What makes a wine truly Old World or New World? When California wine is tasted side by side with reciprocal French wine, there’s always going to be a revelation, no matter your expectations. That’s just the nature of wine! It is constantly surprising and surpassing expectations.
This five-course dinner at Marsh House presents a unique opportunity to take part in a side-by-side comparison of Californian and French grapes. Taste first hand the difference in winemaking traditions, terroir, and vinification. With wines from Steve Taylor’s cellar (check out the list below, they’re serious business) and amazing food from Chefs John Besh and Nathan Duensing, this tasting is sure to be educational, delicious, and downright fun.
With southern seasonal seafood, stunning modern décor, and a fantastic New Orleans Chef, Marsh House is already making its mark on Nashville’s southern food empire. If you haven’t yet been to this buzzed about restaurant in the recently opened Thompson Hotel, you are in for a treat!
