pairings 2013


Happy Valentine’s Day y’all!

You may have noticed that I didn’t create a Valentine’s specific post this week. I figure there are enough images of heart shaped cookies, cupcakes with red and pink icing, pizza with heart shaped pepperonis, and heart shaped carrots for soup – yes really. I’m not making this up – that I don’t need to add to the clutter. Just visit Pinterest if you want some of those tutorials.

As for restaurant recommendations for dining out on Valentine’s Day – I don’t have any of those either. Honestly, I could not tell you the last time I dined out on February 14th. Nope. Not interested. Instead, my husband and I usually choose to have a special dinner on some night shortly following the big day.

And that’s why I’m here today. I’ve got an awesome idea for those of you that are like me. That idea is Pairings! While it’s a week away, it’s still in the month of February, so if you ask me, it’s a perfectly acceptable way to celebrate your love for your honey. And, of course, there’s wine. Lots and lots of wine. And that’s something to celebrate in and of itself, right?

Pairings by Nashville Wine Auction

The Factory at Franklin
Liberty Hall
230 Franklin Road
Franklin, TN 37064

Cost: $125/person, Casual Attire

At Pairings, you’ll have the opportunity to taste over 70 different wines, and all are $30-$150 bottles being poured, so we’re talking quality stuff here. There will be awesome Silent and Live Auctions full of cool trips, luxury items and dinners/tastings (Josh Habiger cooking for 14, Lisa Donovan making dinner for 10, Matt Bolus doing a lunch for 22 people just to name a few!) that will raise money to fight cancer in Middle Tennessee.


So, all that said, I encourage you to buy tickets and participate in this special event.  Of course, you might first want to enter for your chance to win 2 tickets to the event- my Valentine’s gift to you!

Congratulations to the winner!

All you have to do is this:


1. Leave a comment telling me who the special someone is that you’d take to Pairings with you if you win. Will it be your honey, your BFF, your brother, your sister? Who loves wine as much as you do?


For up to 2 additional entries, you can do either or both of the following. Note: You must leave a separate comment for each optional entry.

2.  Follow @NashWineAuction on Twitter and tweet “Love is in the air, and wine is too! Win tickets to #Pairings2014 from @betheats! Enter here: ” then leave a comment telling me you’ve done so.

3.  Like Nashville Wine Auction on Facebook and come back and tell me you did so (or just tell me you already do if that’s the case!)


Contest ends on Monday, February 17th at 9 pm CST. Once the winner is chosen, I’ll make contact via email and post the name here on the blog. If that person doesn’t respond within 48 hours, I’ll be forced to choose another, so be sure to check your email!

    None other than my husband would join me. He’s already having a busy week at work, so this would be a nice way to relax and enjoy!
