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 Occidental Tourist

March 18 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Raise your hand if you consider yourself a fan of any of the following things: California Pinot Noir. Steve Kistler’s wines. Pam and Steve Taylor’s endless generosity. Parties hosted by Loren Chumley & Scott Peterson. The cuisine of Chef Kevin Ramquist.

Great, now that all hands are in the air, we’d like to tell you about a fantastic dinner that combines ALL of the aforementioned wonderful things. On Saturday, March 18, 2023, our CEO and Party Hostess Extraordinaire is hosting 20 fun-loving winning bidders in her beautiful home for an Occidental Pinot Noir evening. They’ll travel through three Occidental vineyards, becoming a bona fide Occidental Tourist!

Steve Kistler, King of California Chardonnay, has another incredible project: World-class Pinot Noir from unique sites on the coastal headlands in the Freestone-Occidental area. The Occidental Pinots are crystalline wines with vivid aromatics and intense red fruit flavors. They have a wonderfully chiseled quality, layered with savory and mineral character. Occidental requires an insane amount of work, grown within the challenging conditions on the western edge of where Pinot Noir can be grown successfully in California. To farm the Occidental vineyards requires skill, experience, and tenacity, while the Occidental wines need a most delicate touch. That’s exactly what Catherine Kistler, Steve’s daughter, does as assistant winemaker.

While everyone knows of Steve Kistler’s remarkable Chardonnays, I believe his Pinot Noir will ultimately prove even more historic. -Robert Parker, Jr.
