Capital Campaign

As we celebrate the past 40 years, we are also very excited about the years to come. Since 2011 we’ve added year-round programming geared to reach people with all levels of wine appreciation – Explorers, Enthusiasts, and Experts; and, we are focused on engaging wine lovers in the “New to Nashville” set while continuing our commitment to our loyal patrons.

The Nashville Wine Auction Board of Directors has given great thought to the next decade. We are confident in our future.  To stimulate our growth and to help achieve our goals, the Nashville Wine Auction will relocate to a new office in January 2020.

This 4,000 square foot office located at 2416 21st Avenue South is on the first floor, and comes with ample parking.  Our wine cellar will double in size, and we will have a board room and reception area that tells our story.



In this endeavor, we have already experienced the generosity of individuals, businesses, and foundations.  We have received two large gifts from the Rosann and Bill Nunnelly Foundation and the Hearn Charitable Foundation. Local businesses and Nashville Wine Auction board members have given their time and professional expertise at no cost, and many individuals have already made cash donations.

The remainder of our need is $85,000. If you would like to invest in our future enabling the Nashville Wine Auction to excel in our mission to Unite the Wine Community to Fund the Fight Against Cancer, we welcome your support.

Please consider making a 100% tax deductible gift at any level to the Nashville Wine Auction Fund the Future Campaign.
