In the midst of the dog days of summer, Early Mountain Vineyards will host an evening of local fried chicken, Virginia sparkling wine, seasonal fruit pies and ice cream, and live music and games on the lawn.
The menu features fried chicken with all the fixings from Charlottesville’s celebrated Southern eatery, The Whiskey Jar. The sustainably raised farm chicken is prepped with a blend of Virginia’s Byrd Mill flour, Bantry Bay seasonings and is fried in peanut oil. Cole slaw, slow-stewed collard greens with Kite's Virginia Country bacon, and biscuits with sorghum butter will complement the chicken.
In addition to hand-squeezed lemonade, a selection of sparkling wine from Early Mountain’s Best of Virginia partners and features will be available as part of the admission, including Veritas Vineyards & Winery’s NV Scintilla, Thibaut-Janisson NV Blanc de Chardonnay, Afton Mountain Vineyards 2010 Bollicine and Trump Winery 2008 Rosé. A sampling of ‘Muscat Fizz,’ made with Early Mountain Vineyards’ Muscat Dolce and sparkling wine will also be available. For dessert, local Charlottesville purveyor Family Pies & Ties will supply an array of seasonal fruit pies, including pecan, strawberry and peach. Vanilla ice cream will be available as a final touch.
Guests can relax on the patio and picnic areas, play bocce or cornhole, and take in the views of the Blue Ridge foothills while enjoying live music from Red and the Romantics.
Tickets for the event include admission, food, and their choice of two sparkling wines along with a take-home Early Mountain champagne flute. The full Tasting Room wine menu will also be available for purchase a la carte.
This event is limited to those who are 21 and older, and a valid photo ID must accompany each guest. Only 150 tickets are available.
