Danny Goodson Band. Rock and Roll in the Barn! $10/person cover charge. Current Wine Club Members $5/person. Bring a chair.

Food will be available from Pure Eats. Pure Eats is dedicated to providing the highest quality, locally sourced food in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere. Our approach is very simple. Our legendary burgers, for example, start with the best ground beef in the world, which happens to come from our Rockbridge County neighbors, the Potter family of Buffalo Creek Beef and Donald's Meats. We then cook it to order with great care, and serve it up in a setting that is comfortable and friendly. The result is maybe just a hamburger, but it's important to us that it be the best.

No Outside Alcohol other than Rockbridge Wine.
