Lightwell Survey Takeover

Lightwell Survey is going “where no man has gone before!” Okay well a bunch of people have been there before BUT not like this!

Lightwell chooses some of Virginia's lesser known vineyard locations, feeling that these sites would produce unusual, delicious, and provocative wines, and they were right.

They hope to help establish a new model for the young and creative class of our industry, so that Virginia's new wave is collaborative, qualitative, and original.

This is a “don’t want to miss” takeover!! Open late. $10/tasting

Live Music - Moon Music

Native Loudoun County trio, Moon Music, forged a partnership over six years ago, with a signature nuanced three-part harmony vocal sound, backed by beautiful piano, and acoustic guitar.

The two then joined forces again, along with Deb Dalby, singer and percussionist, to complete the Moon Music trio. Moon Music is known for their original arrangements, of “unlikely covers” for a vocal trio – songs by Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Journey and many more.

 

Moon Music has headlined local events, and fits comfortably in all scenarios, from private parties, vineyards and tasting rooms, weddings and anniversaries, to pubs, backyard events, restaurants, and just about any spot you can squeeze in a couple of instruments and a triad of long, lean folk!

Live Music - Emma Rowley with Phil Kuhn: Gentle Jazz Live

Emma Rowley is a 23 year old recording artist, producer and songwriter from the Leesburg/Purcellville area of Northern Virginia. After spending four years in Nashville, TN as a full time student, she gradutaed from Belmont University in May of 2017 with a Bachelor of Music in Commercial Music concentrating on voice and songwriting.

Before entering into the world of popular music, Emma was cast in two Broadway shows in New York City as a teenager (Lupone Gypsy – 2008 & Bye Bye Birdie – 2009). These opportunities opened the door for her to perform as a guest of the New York Pops Orchestra at Carnegie Hall on two occasions. This was just the beginning of her professional career. After discovering her knack for songwriting, Emma began pursuing country music, leading her to work with producers Dan Hagen and Bryan White in Nashville. Today, she focuses on her newly developing pop style as a full time musical artist.

Emma will be returning to the Northern Virginia music scene during the summer of 2017 after spending the month of May singing on her second run at The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. She is excited to connect with more music lovers and local businesses. Her entrepreneurial spirit drives her in building a brand from the ground up through real relationships with real people who share her passion for music.

Wines in Motion

Wines in Motion

Join us in the midst of harvest season as we explore wine (and grapes) as they follow the path from picking to bottling.  While most of us are experienced with tasting wine, Wine in Motion is a tasting from a winemaker's point of view - different grapes, juice, fermenting juice, and finished wine.  This is a great opportunity to see (and taste) the process of harvest and fermentation, and to understand what a winemaker looks for with ripe fruit, and what decisions are made in the cellar. If you have always wanted to know a little more about the wine making process this is an excellent opportunity.   

We will taste and discuss with our wine maker the several different processes that grapes go through, including a tasting of benchmark wines which we strive to emulate with our vineyards.  This will be an interactive event so bring on the questions and curiosity! Light fare provided.
