Wine Tasting in the Vineyards of Providence

Saturday, October 2nd, 3:30 pm
Home of Judy and Arnold Baker
2825 Rosemary Lane, Falls Church, VA

See for yourself how Virginia wines stack up against their French counterparts in this special event to benefit the Providence District Democratic Committee. PDDC Member Paul Jameson of the Jameson Wine Experience will lead you through a tasting at the only vineyard in the Providence District – in the Baker’s back yard!


Wine Tasting

In the famous “Judgment of Paris,” depicted in the movie Bottle Shock, French judges rated a group of California wines higher than their French wine counterparts.  Now you can see for yourself how Virginia wines stack up against their French counterparts in this special event to raise money for the Providence District Democratic Committee.

PDDC Member Paul Jameson of the Jameson Wine Experience will lead you through a tasting comparing four Virginia wines matched with their French counterparts.  The wines will be served “blind”- meaning, you won’t know which glass has the French and which has the Virginia wine.   We’ll give you hints of what to look for in tasting the wines, and your job is to guess which is which and decide which one you like best.

The tasting will be held at the home of Judy and Arnold Baker, 2825 Rosemary Lane, Falls Church, on Saturday, October 2nd, at 3:30pm. The Bakers have the only vineyard in Providence District (or so we believe), right in their own backyard.

This is your chance to learn more about Virginian (and French) wines while contributing to Providence Democrats at the same time!  Ticket price is $50/person.
