Limited to 50 people. Reserve today!

One of my all time favorite presenters returns.

A tasting with Jake Parrott is so much fun. It’s an interactive experience where you’ll taste a delicious Aperitif, then he’ll add something like citrus peel or dark chocolate, and have you taste it again. Suddenly the wine is on a new level and your palate is awakened to a delicious new experience. We’re so fortunate to have lured Jake to Charlottesville again. Don’t miss this.
