Annual Summer Sojourn: Sipping and Savoring at Barboursville Vineyards
Friday, July 19, 2019
You are invited to join the Bailliage of Greater Washington, DC on our Annual Summer Sojourn
We will be welcomed by Vice Echanson Honoraire Luca Paschina for a tasting of four reserve wines in the Piedmont Arcades overlooking the vineyards (or on the patio if it’s raining) accompanied by four assaggini from Chef Spencer Crawford. We will then savor a seated five‑course seasonal luncheon in a private room with each course paired with a wine from the vineyard. We will also have an opportunity to taste a rare older vintage of Octagon, Virginia’s most iconic wine.
If there is sufficient interest, we will have round trip transportation going from Bethesda to Barboursville with bubbly and sushi provided by Maître Restaurateur JayZ Wu and his team at Sushi Oishii in Rockville. The bus or van will leave in the morning from Bethesda and depart Barboursville in the late afternoon.
The event is on a Friday to give confrères the option to spend the night in one of the beautiful rooms on the estate or at one of numerous nearby hotels. (See the Barboursville Winery website, https://www.bbvwine.com/visiting, for more on area lodging). For those who are spending the night on the Barboursville estate, there is the option of attending the local Shakespeare Festival’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at held outdoors in the ruins on the estate on Friday evening. If you are staying at the estate and attend the play, there will be a complimentary picnic basket dinner along with reserved 1st or 2nd row seats. Please note that reservations for the rooms and the performance are very limited and will need to be made separately and directly with the Inn at Barboursville (540-832-5384 1804 or email@example.com). Rooms are in high demand and the Inn is holding the remaining 6 rooms for July 19th and 20th only until April 20th, when the rooms will be released to the public.
