I could not be happier with the success of the 2010 Winemaker Wednesday series at The Frenchman’s Cellar in downtown Culpeper. When I first suggested this series to Jeffery Mitchell, owner of FC, there was no hesitation on his part. A true believer in Virginia wines and Virginia artisan food products. His shop, located within the Frenchman’s Corner, is an oasis of wines, micro-brews and artisan cheese delights in Central Virginia.
You know how I love one-on-one chats with winemakers, and I have no doubt that you also see the benefit of a visit to charming downtown Culpeper, for the opportunity to visit with an icon in Virginia winemaking.
So get your wine-loving self to FC on Wednesday, September 15th, when Luca Paschina of Barboursville Winery will be the featured winemaker. From 6pm – 8pm wine enthusiasts will have the opportunity to experience a casual, intimate setting in which to taste the highly revered Barboursville wines and chat with Luca about his approach from vineyard to bottle. The wines will be paired with artisan cheeses from the Frenchman’s Cellar’s international array.
The Frenchman’s Cellar/Corner, 129 E. Davis Street, Culpeper. Phone. 540.825.8025. Complimentary tasting paired with artisan cheeses. Of course, wine available for purchase.
