Music City Harvest Party

October 14, 2022

The inaugural Music City Harvest Party brings you a taste of South America featuring wines from Argentina and Chile. The evening begins with a Wine Sampling Reception at 6:00 pm featuring wines from South America, followed by an Autumnal Harvest Dinner and a spirited Live Auction with 15 Fantastic Lots. Make sure you Bring Your Own Wine to share at dinner.

The Late Harvest Party begins at 8:30 pm with more wine from our featured South American vintners, Live Music, Bourbon & Whiskey Tasting, Late Night Snacks and more! This all takes place in the beautiful outdoor space at Cedarwood, so dress for an outdoor celebration of the harvest, “Nashville style.”  Boots are welcome and encouraged. We don’t care what you wear, as long as you bring your generous spirit with you! 

Transportation provided by Gray Line Tennessee will be available departing from the Nashville Wine Auction office; however, space is limited and will be available on a first come first serve basis. Reserve your seat when you register for the event.

Featured Vintners

While South America is most famous for Malbec, the wine industry in this country produces many other exceptional wines. This is not surprising since Argentina is the 5th largest producer of wine in the world and Chile is 9th, just behind Portugal. Between Mendoza and Santiago lies more than 100km of the largely impenetrable Andes mountain range which provides a spectacular backdrop to these wine regions. These mountains also help create unique, ideal terroirs for growing several grape varietals including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere and more. We have invited these wineries to share their incredible wines with our Nashville friends, so we hope you will join us to celebrate and explore these South American treasures.
