I’d like to thank you for the wine donations you have made in the past to l’Eté du Vin and make you aware of the details of the upcoming auction. The 34th Annual l’Eté du Vin will be held on Saturday July 20, 2013. Our Guests of Honor for this year’s Auction are Martine Saunier, Martine’s Wines Inc. and Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger of Champagne Taittinger, Champagne, France.  They will be honored at our Patrons’ Dinners on Friday, July 19 as well as featured at the Vintner’s Tasting on the evening of July 18. The wine selections are not final yet, but the ones we have look outstanding.

Our efforts to fight cancer succeed to the degree that we offer exciting world-class wines in our Auction. I would like to invite you to join our cause and to dig deep into your cellar to find something special for our Silent and/or Live Auctions. Popular lots include hard to find large format bottles, mini-verticals, old world reds, whites and sparkling wines, as well as other sought after new world wines.  I can assure you that the evening’s loyal crowd includes avid collectors and supporters that bid both enthusiastically and generously.

Below you will find our donation forms.  Completing these forms helps us present your wines properly at auction.  For your convenience we are able to pick up any donation items upon request. I’m looking forward to seeing what you will select.  Should you have any questions or want to discuss further, please contact me at (615) 329-1760, at the Nashville Wine Auction office.  In order to guarantee inclusion in this year’s catalog, please return your completed donation form no later than March 29, 2012.

I want to thank you for your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.
