The Nashville Wine Auction has a wine-filled weekend of fun coming up. There are events from Thursday to Saturday and they all raise money to fund the fight against cancer.
Starting tonight (Feb. 27), there are 11 Private Vintner Dinners. These are held in fine restaurants and homes throughout Nashville. Attendees get to meet and socialize with winemakers while enjoying multi-course meals. The dinners range in price from $150 to $300 per person and all begin at 6:30 PM. More information on those dinners is here.
The fun continues on Friday (Feb. 28) with Wined Up! at City Winery. This is a “fun, accessible wine-tasting party.” This year, the Collectors’ Showcase floor returns with 31 vintners. Wined Up! includes wine tasting, small specialty plates and a silent auction with over 130 lots of fine wines and luxury items. Tickets for this are going fast and are available here.
Saturday’s (Feb. 29) event is considered the highlight and it’s a six-course gourmet meal where talented chefs create pairings for special wines. Chef Matt Bolus of 404 Kitchen will emcee the evening.
“We are honoring these chefs for all they have done for the Nashville Wine Auction,” says Holly Whaley, President/CEO. “Because they sacrifice their time and provide amazing meals to enjoy with the wines donated by so many wineries, our beneficiaries receive much-needed funds to serve our community. They are real heroes.”
