Barboursville Wine Dinner @ The Fearrington House
Jun 22 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join Beverage and Service Director Paula de Pano in hosting Barboursville Vineyards’ winemaker, Luca Paschina, and Broadbent Selections’ Maximilian Kast, for a wine dinner at The Fearrington House Restaurant.
With over 25 years of expertise at Barboursville Vineyards, Luca and the winery are now considered pioneers of quality winemaking in Virginia, if not the entire United States. Originally from Piedmont in Italy, Luca’s perspective on the role of wine in life “is drawn from a trust in the land and humility in the exercise of their skills to elicit its finest fruits.” 
From their flagship wine, Octagon, which rivals First Growth Bordeaux, to aromatic expressions of Sauvignon Blanc and Viogniers, to savory Nebbiolos and Cabernet Francs, to even sweet wines made from Malvaxia, Barboursville Vineyards finds itself to be at the pinnacle of American Viticulture.
Tickets are $175 per person and include wine pairings, a nine course dinner prepared by Executive Chef Colin Bedford, service fee and tax. Please call 919.542.2121 to reserve.
