Come in this weekend and visit with us!

The Wines
Kunde Magnolia Lane Sauvignon Blanc
Magnolia Lane has long been a signature wine for Kunde Family Winery and a go-to wine for our guests and Wine Club members. This wine offers a bright crispness, beautiful citrus notes, and a pleasant flavor that lingers just a bit. I recommend drinking this wine with a little chill on it. Our Sauvignon Blanc is best accompanied by fresh oysters or light cheeses on the patio with friends.
Mount Eden Estate Chardonnay
The full-bodied Estate Chardonnay displays fine underlying acidity and a long finish. Hints of cardamom, anise and hazelnut add interest to the core lemon, mineral flavors. Of all Mount Eden’s estate-grown wines, the Chardonnay is most in need of further bottle aging at release, requiring an additional two to four years to fully reveal its true character. Many vintages are still fresh and enjoyable after fifteen years, explaining why Mount Eden Estate Chardonnay is considered one of California’s longest-lived white wines.
Etude Rose of Pinot Noir
Etude produces Pinot Noirs in the new world’s most renowned Pinot-producing regions, including Santa Barbara County; this Rosé continues that exploration with a crisp, bright and elegant wine.

Fighting Chance Pinot Noir
Fighting Chance Pinot Noir, with rich red cherries and blood plums with hints of earthiness and balanced smokey oak. Fantastic.
Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep red in color the Atlas Peak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of red cherry, currants and licorice on the nose. Robust and full-bodied with supple tannins and dense blackberry fruit. Flavors of mocha, molasses, blueberry, and pepper dominate with back notes of plum and graphite on the finish.
Pair with salt-crusted beef tenderloin, classic rib-eye roast, herbed potatoes, simple sautéed mushrooms with chives, hard cheeses.



The Beers!!
5:00 -8:00
Welcome Brewdog!
In 2007 James and Martin started BrewDog with a mission to make other people as passionate about great craft beer as they were. In April 2007, in a godforsaken industrial estate in north east Scotland, BrewDog came howling into the world.
BrewDog was born with the aim to revolutionise the beer industry and completely redefine British beer-drinking culture.
With the launch of our Columbus, OH brewery in 2017, BrewDog USA continues the mission to make other people as passionate about great craft beer as we are. Every beer we make, everything we do, ties back to that. We are committed to putting the passion, the flavor and the artisan craftsmanship back into people’s glasses. We want to change the world of beer forever and introduce people to new dimensions of flavor they never knew existed.

For the first time in Virginia - Brewdog!

BrewDog Lost Lager
Lager is one hell of a beer if you make it right. Lost Lager takes back the ground lost over decades by lager monoliths. This is a dry-hopped Pilsner made with classic German Saphir hops, giving vibrant citrus and stone-fruit notes. Built from Bavarian yeast, it has a crisp clean taste. This is lager like it was, like it should be, like it will be. Lager is back! 4.7% ABV

BrewDog Punk IPA
Punk IPA is the beer that kick-started it. This light, golden classic has been subverted with new world hops to create an explosion of flavor. Bursts of caramel and tropical fruit with an all-out riot of grapefruit, pineapple and lychee, precede a spiky bitter finish. This is the beer that started it all - and it’s not done yet... 5.6% ABV

BrewDog Hazy Jane
East Coasts collide and crank it up for this new New England IPA retuned in Scotland. Brewed with oats and wheat and left unfiltered for a hazy appearance and super smooth delivery. Dry-hopped for a full-tilt fruit hit with pineapple, mango and a hint of zesty lime. Low on bitterness, high on haze, heavy on hops. 7.2% ABV Hazy Jane - embrace the opaque.
