Tailgate Thursday Returns May 25 – Aug 31

Tailgate Thursday Returns May 25 – Aug 31

Our Tailgate Thursday summer music series continues through Thursday, May 31! We’ll continue to fire up the grills and host live music on the patio every Thursday from 6 to 9 pm. Bring your own food to grill and enjoy a fun, laid back night at the vineyard. With free admission and live music on the patio, it’s the perfect way to start your almost-weekend. Don’t forget to pack lawn games and picnic blankets, and children and leashed dogs are welcome! Meat from Free Union Grass Farm can be purchased and thawed by calling ahead. General thaw times are 20 to 40 minutes. For larger cuts and whole chickens, calling a day in advance is suggested.

Severe inclement weather may cancel the event – follow our facebook page to stay on top of updates and weekly lineups. *Please note that due to VA ABC regulations, the only alcohol that can be consumed on the property must be wine purchased from the tasting room during the duration of the event.*

Food & Wine Magazine Lists Charlottesville Wine Region as “best and most underrated” – Top Wineries Include Stinson

Food & Wine Magazine Executive Wine Editor Ray Isle lists Charlottesville, Virginia as his vote for “the best and most underrated wine region in the US” in his October 2016 Your Urgent Wine Questions, Answered column. He elaborates: “It’s absolutely gorgeous, and the top wineries (such as Barboursville, Stinson, Michael Shaps and King Family) will impress even the biggest wine snob”. Bonus points for shout outs to Fleurie, one of our favorite local restaurants, and The Farmhouse B&B at Veritas.
