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:

V.I.P. (Very Into Port) Dinner at Kayne Prime

April 14, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm


The stellar lineup of vintage Ports come from Robert “Port Master” Richards’ cellar. Robert is a veteran of the Wine Auction circuit, having chaired the Grand Teton Music Festival Wine Auction in Jackson Hole for many years. Also, he is what we in the business call a Port Nerd, having visited the Duoro and Oporto several times and collected Port for almost 40 years. Last year he hosted a slam dunk Pre World War II Era Port dinner, and this year Robert has come back for more with some whoppers from his cellar. Namely two ports from each of the following vintages: 1924, 1935, 1945, and the infamous 1927.

The 1924 Porto vintage was a low volume year that produced an excellent
vintage. It’s drinking well now, so this should be quite a treat.
• Warre’s 1924
• Dow’s 1924

The 1935 vintage is a high tannin port with rich fruit; this is a classic
Vintage Port. It is aromatic, refined, and firmly structured.
• W & J Graham’s Vintage Port 1935
• Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port 1935

The 1945 vintage was a superb year, declared by the major houses. It’s a
classic vintage, superlative quality, and concentrated.
• W & J Graham’s Vintage Port 1945
• Robertson’s Rebello Valente Vintage Port 1945

And the 1927 vintage… well that one is notoriously the finest Vintage Port.
Superb concentration; balanced. The chance to drink this is truly a special
• Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 1927
• W & J Graham’s Vintage Port 1927

Chef Robert Grace from Kayne Prime is preparing perfect Port pairings for
the occasion. It’s no easy feat, but if anyone can do it, it’s Robert Grace.
