2012 ADAGIO RELEASE PARTY
Friday, October 10 • 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM
Advanced Tickets: $50 ($40 Club Member)
At the Door: $55 ($45 Club Member)

What a year 2014 has been for Adagio! The 2010 Vintage was awarded a Gold medal and a 94 pt. rating from the Beverage Testing Institute’s World Wine Championships, Gold from the International Winemaker Challenge, Silver from the Decanter World Wine Awards in London, and culminated with the receipt of the coveted 2014 Virginia Governor’s Cup as the State’s highest rated wine. The Adagio has emerged as the leader of an elite collection of flagship wines for the state of Virginia, and such an illustrious wine deserves to be celebrated.  While the 2010 Adagio is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, Winemaker Matthew Meyer, in keeping with the bold style of the wine, created an intriguing blend for the 2012 that consists of equal parts Malbec and Petit Verdot that he claims may be even better!   

Join us as we commemorate the release of our 2012 Adagio.  Descend a candle-lit staircase onto a red carpet as you make your entrance, complete with photographers, and immerse yourself in the theme of “Adagio.” Savor delectable and inspired small plates prepared by Wessex Hundred Executive Chef Ika Zaken paired with select library vintages of Adagio. Enjoy pas de deux ballet performances throughout the evening while listening to a mix of adagios and modern music as interpreted by a string trio while you stroll through the beautifully appointed lawn, sipping delicious Williamsburg Winery wine.

Guests are encouraged to wear black and red cocktail attire. Admission includes a sampling of select library vintages of Adagio paired with four small plates.This event will offer an open wine bar with select vintages of Adagio being available for purchase.
