Join us for an Elevated Tasting of Super proportions!

Chef Thomas has prepared a plate of treats for you to celebrate America’s Big Game.  No matter which team you’re routing for, our take on Sliders, Bacon and Cheese Bites, BBQ Meatballs, Cookies and Chocolate Truffles will put you in the mood for some great football watching.  Each bite is paired with the perfect wine from 868 Estate and comes with our prediction on the game winner. 

(While you’re here, pick up a bottle or two to share at your watch party.  You’ll be a winner before the game even starts!)

Each Elevated Tasting includes five bites, both savory and sweet, paired with our six wines.  Reservations required for groups of 8 or more.

jefferson with wine

We know from historical records that Thomas Jefferson loved Bordeaux blends from France.  Given Jefferson’s legendary passion for making wine in Virginia, we think he’d really like our house Meritage, grown in Virginia, made in Virginia and enjoyed far and wide.  

Join us to celebrate your President’s Day holiday with wonderful wine (including our award winning Meritage), chocolate truffles, mulled wine and plenty of delicious food to snack on in our Tasting Room from noon – 5.  We look forward to welcoming you today!

Laissez le bon temps rouler!

Join us for four courses, four wines and a lively evening of food and friendship at The Vine, the monthly women’s wine dinner at 868 Estate vineyards.

Don’t worry if your Cajun French is rusty: “laissez les bon temps rouler” (pronounced “Lay-say le bon tom roo-lay”) just means “let the good times roll.” Now you know.
