Winter Barrel Tasting 2020
January 18 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Step into a winter wonderland of wine and experience the intense flavors of our barrel-aged reds and whites! You won’t want to miss this chance to sample some of our future vintages in the cellar with our production team.
For our musical entertainment, we are pleased to welcome back Brad Pugh from the Washington, DC-based band, Practically Einstein. Brad will be playing a mix of covers and originals.
Light fare will be available for sale at the event from Denson’s Market. The menu will include Chili & Cornbread, as well as Fried Oysters, Cheese Plates and Mini Eclairs.
Guests may also bring their own picnic lunch. (Due to ABC licensing, no outside alcohol is allowed.)
Admission includes the barrel tasting, a regular wine tasting, Ingleside wine glass & live music. Food will be available for sale at the event.

Q: What makes our barrel tastings unique?
A: Our barrel tastings take place only once or twice a year. During this time, we allow guests to sample wines from the barrel with our production team. It’s a great way to learn more about the barrel aging process and how barrels impart flavor. Tickets also include a regular wine tasting, a souvenir glass and live music.
Q: Will this event be held indoors or outdoors?
A: This winter event will take place throughout several indoor sections of our facility. The barrel tastings will take place inside our wine cellar. Regular wine tastings will take place in our Barrel Room. Live music will be held in our indoor Pavilion, which will be reserved for event ticket holders only.
