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:

When we talk about serious wine, Bordeaux is a SERIOUS wine. The paradigm for Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this region of France is world class, both for its quality and its impact on the wine world. We’ll taste through Left Bank Bordeaux (predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon) and Right Bank Bordeaux (predominantly Merlot) and give you a basic breakdown of the region. And if you want to know the perfect steak wine – it’s Bordeaux!
WHAT IS #WINETALK?
Nashville Wine Auction is pleased to present #WineTalk, a tasting experience where you learn all about wine from one of Nashville’s foremost wine experts. Whether you are just beginning your interest in wine or are a seasoned expert, you will be in good hands with Elise Loehr, Advanced Sommelier and Beverage Director of Table 3. Every tasting will have a specific theme, so you can pick your favorite or attend them all. You’ll be sure to come away from #WineTalk with a better understanding of wine and new brands to explore.
These tastings are meant to be ALL about the wine. We’ll taste and we’ll talk. Where do the wines come from, who makes them, what’s special about the region and what are the similarities and differences between the wines? You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions to further your wine knowledge. If you are interested in wine, we know you will have fun. So, come join us for #WineTalk!
WHO IS THE EXPERT?
Elise Loehr, Advanced Sommelier and Beverage Director of Table 3. Elise knows a lot about wine and she’s great at teaching us about it too! She has attended some of the wine industry’s most challenging programs, and achieved the Advanced Sommelier Certifcation from the Court of Master Sommeliers. Elise has currently passed two of the three portions of the Court’s Master Sommelier Diploma, a certification so rigorous that less than 250 people worldwide have earned the title since its creation in 1969. She’s one of those people that can see a wine blind, smell it, taste it and tell you it’s a 1985 Red Burgundy from Gevry-Chambertin. So, you know she’s good!
