Nashville's 39th Annual l’Eté du Vin
2019 Dates TBA
Each year Nashville Wine Auction brings together wine enthusiasts and collectors to fund the fight against cancer during the annual l’Eté du Vin or A Summer of Wine. The 2018 event celebrated Women in Wine, with seven guests of honor including a California winemaking expert, a President of one of Napa's most highly respected wineries, and a Barcelona-born winemaker, author, and ambassador. All of the women are making their mark on the wine industry, and it was an honor to celebrate them. The festival weekend in August kicks off with the Vintners' Tasting, followed by the Patrons' Dinner, and last l’Eté du Vin where guests experience excitement with a wine auction and dinner at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel as the wine community comes together to support a multitude of beneficiaries including hospitals and organizations whose purpose is directly related to the treatment, patient assistance, and eradication of cancer.
