A few years ago I was introduced to the Nashville Wine Auction through their $29 and Under event, which I really enjoyed. In the years since, they’ve held other parties that I wanted to attend, but there always seemed to be some conflict with my schedule. But when my friend Vivek (who is now the marketing specialist for NWA) told me about Champagne and Chardonnay, I was pretty excited to see that my calendar was clear on October 3rd and I would actually be able to attend!

This ladies-only event will be held at the beautiful home of Kelly Pappas Crockett and will include – you guessed it-  drinking champagne and chardonnay, noshing on hors d’oeuvres, and even some shopping, all to help fund the fight against cancer.

Another reason that I am particularly interested in this event is that it’s specifically featuring champagne and chardonnay – two things that I can drink these days. What do I mean by that? Well, some pretty big news that I haven’t yet had a chance to share with you guys is that I’ve discovered I’m allergic to red wine.

I know. Tragic. For those that know me well, you know that I love a good red wine. But, alas, I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to taste one again! The pain and suffering I’ve endured after even just a little bit is completely not worth any fleeting pleasure I get from the experience.

Soooo- it’s now white wine and champagne for me from here on out. Since I haven’t spent nearly as much time drinking either of these as I have red wines, I don’t have a favorite or “go to”, but I’m hoping this party will change that. I’m looking forward to sipping, sampling and discovering!
