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:

Voyage to Barolo and Barbaresco with the Wines of North Berkeley Imports

March 31 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


This lot is a wine lover’s dream come true – an exclusive, multi-course dinner with rare Barolo and Barbaresco wines provided by an award-winning importer.

Joining in the party is Billy Weiss from North Berkeley Imports. For more than 40 years, North Berkeley Imports has partnered with top vine-growing families in Europe to bring the finest bottles to the United States, with a special focus on Barolo from Italy and Burgundy from France.

This sumptuous evening will take place at the beautiful home of Rahel Klapheke and Jim Sloan on Friday, March 31, 2023. Billy will provide the evening’s wines, brought directly from Piedmont, Italy for this special event.

North Berkeley Imports was named “Importer of the Year” in both 2019 and 2020 Wine & Spirits magazine. The company’s rare selections are available across the country, for both private collectors and trade customers. Billy and his wife Jean and their family are based in Memphis.

We have two incredibly talented chefs: Chef Marco Rossi, the renowned Italian chef who moved to Nashville to open Tartufo Ristorante. Chef Gabriella Grady will be joining Marco in the kitchen to create incredible pairings for the wines. Both chefs currently work together at Foresta in Abingdon, Virginia, a food town mecca named the best small-town food scene by USA Today for three years in a row.
