Rockbridge Vineyard Wine Dinner

Wednesday, October 4th and Thursday, October 5th, 2017 |  7:00pm            Wine Dinner featuring local Rockbridge Vineyard    |   $60 per person   |   6 wines paired with 5 courses   |  Reservations Are Required

cornOctober brings with it crisp fall air, picking of apples and pumpkins and breathtaking colors spread across the mountains and hills.  As we welcome another beautiful autumn in the Shenandoah Valley, we will also celebrate Virginia Wine Month!  October is a time of year where we like to place award-winning Virginia wineries in the spotlight, and this year, we are proudly featuring Rockbridge Vineyard for our October Wine Dinner!

Located in the heart of VA’s Shenandoah Valley Wine Country lies picturesque Rockbridge Vineyard.  Winemaker, Shepherd Rouse, has worked in vineyards across Germany, California and Virginia since the 1970′s.  Finding the perfect synthesis of science, art and lifestyle in winemaking, Shep chose to carry out his goal of producing fine wine in Virginia.  Owners, Shep and Jame Rouse found the perfect site in northern Rockbridge County and opened what has become a successful vineyard for nearly 30 years.

With an astonishing 24 different wines bottled, narrowing down the list was quite a delicious undertaking.  It was a long tough day, but we managed to taste our way through all 24 wines and carefully selected 6 wines to perfectly pair with fall-inspired dishes for our October Wine Dinner.  We hope you will be able to join us in celebrating VA Wine Month with Rockbridge Vineyards.

Sincerely,

Ashley Esposito, Manager

Emilio Amato, Owner
