l’Eté du Vin Auction Winners Enjoy Dinner with Troy Gentry

On September 29th, eight lucky guests arrived at the beautiful home of Troy and Angie Gentry for an exciting culinary treat. This dining experience was won by Bill and Cyndi Sites during the Live Auction at l’Eté du Vin 2012.

Troy Gentry is a part of country music’s superstar duo Montgomery Gentry. One of country music’s favorite bands, Montgomery Gentry has produced more than twenty chart singles on the Billboard Hot Country Song charts. They have scored a Grammy® nomination, won awards from Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music, were inducted in the Grand Ole Opry in 2009 and released their latest album, Rebels on the Run, in 2011.

When Troy isn’t busy touring, he enjoys spending time with his family in Nashville. He and his family sat down with our Auction winners and 8 of their friends for a lovely evening with elegant pairings of wine and fine cuisine. This exceptional dinner was created by Chefs Ashley Quick (Executive Chef, Miel) and Cole Ellis (Chef de Cuisine, Hermitage Hotel). The delicious wines were provided by Sandy Taylor of Taylor Family Vineyards of Napa Valley’s Stags Leap Wine District.

 “The food and wine pairings were excellent,” says Sandy Taylor. “I couldn’t have chosen more appropriate pairings myself.”

For guests interested in the exciting l’Eté du Vin experience, please save the date for Nashville Wine Auction’s next  l’Eté du Vin on July 18-20, 2013.
