Sauvignon Blanc: An Aromatic Affair
Friday, August 7th @ 6:00 PM
Virginia's sultry summer days and nights summon Sauvignon Blanc to the table!
Few things are better than a glass of crisp, chilled, Sauvignon Blanc on a hot summer night, paired exquisitely with locally sourced food crafted by a renowned chef. To celebrate this summer favorite, Delaplane Cellars will be hosting a special evening of exploring Sauvignon Blanc wines from around the world!
Our adventure will feature wines from world-famous Sauvignon Blanc growing locations such as France’s Loire Valley, California's Napa Valley and New Zealand's Marlborough region. Guests will experience intense aromas and flavors from floral and herbal, vibrant citrus and tropical notes, and hints of smoky oak. The evening will also feature a tasting with our not-yet-released Delaplane Cellars 2019 Sauvignon Blanc.
During this special evening, winemaker Rick Tagg will guide guests through this alluring experience and provide insight into the evening's wines. Resident Chef David Dunlap will be preparing specialized and unique dishes to pair with each wine.
This intimate event will have limited seating with only 10 tables available and will be hosted outside on our tasting room deck. Reservations are required with a two-person minimum per table. Cost per person is $95.
