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:

The Obsession with Antinori Continues Dinner hosted by Tom Black

April 9 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm


It is no secret we are obsessed with Antinori wines, and we’re guessing you’re harboring the same feelings. But we will let you in on a little secret: the Antinori celebrations don’t have to stop after l’Ete du Vin… The obsession continues for ten lucky Buy-A-Spot bidders who acted fast at l’Eté du Vin.

On April 9, 2022, in Carmen’s Cellar at the 505 Building in the heart of Downtown Nashville, Tom Black is pulling some incredible Antinori bottles for a fabulous dinner for ten. He’s bringing in Nashville Wine Auction’s favorite chef, Kevin Ramquist, for your culinary pleasure.

Guests will taste through iconic vintages of Tignanello, Solaia, and Guado al Tasso.

TIGNANELLO:  The first Sangiovese to be aged in barriques, the first contemporary red wine blended with untraditional varieties (specifically Cabernet) and one of the first red wines in the Chianti Classico region that didn’t use white grapes. Tignanello is a milestone.

SOLAIA:  The sunniest part of Tignanello’s hillside, the very best grapes from the very best vineyard. All the rest is passion, the utmost care, and research. These are the secrets of Solaia, together with the finest Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Sangiovese grapes from its namesake vineyard.

GUADO AL TASSO:  A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and occasionally a small amount of Petit Verdot to best represent the complexity and elegance of the Bolgheri terroir.

The first-ever vintage of Solaia (1978) will be a fantastic treat in addition to a 1978 Tignanello out of magnum.

Here is the complete line-up:

– Marchesi Antinori Solaia Toscana IGT 1978
