Stars Under the Stars, An Evening with Nashville Edit took place last Friday evening at 7:00 pm, at the Woodlea Rooftop of the Kimpton Aertson Hotel in Midtown. The event was held outside with great views, and the breeze made the evening comfortable despite the warm weather down below. Attendees enjoyed a performance by local band Temecula Road. These super-talented, young and poised musicians charmed and entertained the wine-loving audience. Wines of the evening included Chateau Potelle Chardonnay VGS Mt.Veeder 2014, Merry Edwards Flax 2014, Back by Black Cabernet Sauvignon, Williams Selyem Sonoma Coast 2013, among others. Attendees purchased the tickets to this event during the live auction at “Pairings” in February earlier this year.

Nashville Wine Auction’s mission is to unite the wine community to fund the fight against cancer. Throughout the year, Nashville Wine Auction hosts four major events – Pairings: The Ultimate Wine and Food Weekend, l’Eté du Vin: The Country’s Longest-Running Charity Wine Auction, Champagne & Chardonnay: A Sparkling Evening Just for Ladies and The Men’s Event: Honoring the Life and Spirit of Billy Ray Hearn.
