The Nashville Wine Auction’s Pairings event is the ultimate wine and food weekend happening February 25-27. For three days the finest chefs will collaborate with the best winemakers to provide unique tastes like you’ve never tried. This year’s theme is Austin, as in Austin Texas, referring to the all-star lineup of Austin chefs coming to Music City to participate. The fun begins with the Private Vintner Dinners February 25, followed by the special Wined Up event February 26, and finishing with Pairings February 27. Clear the palate and get ready for a taste bud adventure you won’t forget.
By the way, Nashville Wine Auction raises money to benefit American Cancer Society, Make a Wish Foundation, Pearl Point, Saint Thomas Health, Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center, and Gilda’s Club Nashville.
