Spring is just around the corner and so is another wine dinner! This March, we will be celebrating Virginia Wine and Dine Month with a wine dinner featuring Barren Ridge Vineyards. Located on the family’s former apple orchard, Barren Ridge is now home to Augusta County’s Premier winery. Owners John and Shelby Higgs, have been producing award-winning wines since the winery opened in 20078 and have continued to do so overt the past 10 years.
The six wines chosen for this dinner were thoughtfully selected and carefully paired to showcase the unique qualities of the wines. Please join us as we celebrate Virginia winemaking and enjoy some fantastic wines grown and bottled in our own backyard.
With wines this good and food this delicious, we are excited to share these pairings with you and hope you can join us!
