Lot 128 | Visiting San Diego with Nashville Wine Auction Faithful, Diane & Sam

The Nashville Wine Auction satellite office in San Diego is ready for business! Three lucky couples are cordially invited to visit our West Coast branch managers (and NWA faithful), Diane & Sam Madison-Jammal.

Lot Details

And just who are Diane & Sam Madison-Jammal? Well, they are wine-lovers and loyal supporters of NWA who used to live in Nashville. Diane served on the Board of Directors from 2010-2013, one of those years as Board Chair. Despite moving to San Diego, Diane & Sam have remained active in the auction.

They have planned all the details, from lodging to activities and, of course they have included a fabulous wine dinner! Transported to San Diego just for this special dinner is Nashville Wine Auction favorite, Chef Kevin Ramquist who will prepare a wine dinner for the ages. Last November they came to town for Vintage 2005 Another Monumental Tasting of Bordeaux. Needless to say, they fell in love with Chef Ramquist’s cooking and felt compelled to brainstorm this awesome lot for auction!

More about said awesome auction lot… On Friday, August 26, 2022 you’ll arrive in the land of miles and miles of pristine white beaches, and check in to the luxurious US Grant Hotel. Located near San Diego’s vibrant Gaslamp Quarter, this property provides an ideal location from which to explore the city. Iconic attractions like the San Diego Zoo, Petco Park and Balboa Park are situated nearby, providing ample opportunities for adventure.

A San Diego harbor tour is the perfect way to see the sights — from historic landmarks to marine wildlife. Which is good, because that is what you have planned for Saturday! When it’s time to hop off the boat, you’ll be hungry. Which is also good, because you’ll meet up at Diane and Sam’s house for a fantastic meal from Chef Kevin. Transported to San Diego just for this special dinner is Nashville Wine Auction favorite, Chef Kevin Ramquist.

Dinner will feature selections from the Madison-Jammal cellar, including:

Party bonus! This trip also includes tickets to the infamous San Diego Zoo. Considering it is almost a full day visit, you can choose to extend your trip to take the time to visit the zoo or try to squeeze it in on Friday when you arrive.
