  • Bluestone Vineyard’s “Beau”, a golden sweet white wine, a Vidal Blanc-Traminette blend
  • Bluestones Vineyard’s Cabernet Franc – One of Virginia’s most popular red wines. Light in character and easy to drink, it is fruit forward and soft on the finish. Cherry on the front, oak and pepper tastes are very light without being overpowering.


Warfel’s Chocolates, “Aleppo Turkish Chili Chocolate” handmade in nearby Dayton, Virginia. The mild heat from the chili creates an unexpected chocolate experience!

Or Warfel’s Chocolates, “Chocolate Sea Salt Toffee” – A thin layer of buttery toffee, spread chocolate and topped with coarse sea salt.
