Flutter: An Art Installation at 868 Estate
Aug 3 – Sep 5 all-day

flutterflutter 3

Come see the butterflies at 868 – both wild and artful!  As we enjoy the butterflies in our Monarch Waystation, in our incubators and and in our fields, Art DIrector Andrea Cybyk has filled the outside of the Tasting Room with hand-painted, one-of-a-kind mylar butterflies in our art installation “Flutter!”  

These mylar butterflies will be fluttering around 868 Estate and Grandale until September 5th. You can invite them to your house and support Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy by making a donation of $25 for 5 assorted and colorful butterflies to be mailed to you when we’ve taken them down.click to donate

The Vine: Cruising the Mediterranean in Wine and Food
Aug 24 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

sold out

This event has sold out.  Plan ahead for September and October – get your tickets now!

Each flavor brings a different memory to mind – an evening watching the sun set across the sea from a cliffside restaurant in Italy, the sound of crickets in the afternoon in Provence as we poured yet another glass of rosé, the smell of the wood fire where the evening’s roast lamb was slowly being turned by an elderly man tending the spit in Greece…

From Spain, to Italy, Croatia, and Lebanon, we’ll take a trip around the area and celebrate the flavors of this very special region of the world.

Tickets and more info

Tickets are $55/pp and include four wines and a delectable four course gourmet meal. 

The Vine is a monthly women’s wine dinner served at 868 Estate Vineyards.  Four courses, four wines, door prizes and more!  Join us in the welcoming environment of Grandale to drink carefully selected wines, eat wonderful food from Chef Author and enjoy the company of lively women.

cancer ribbonIn honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, jewelry boutique Kendra Scott will be set up before the dinner at 6:30 with a shopping opportunity.  20% of the proceeds from tonight will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and when you buy a piece of jewelry, Kendra Scott will send a piece to a woman currently going through cancer treatment.  You’ll also have the chance to write a note of encouragement to accompany the jewelry gift.

 

We’re heading south of the equator tonight where it’s spring and bud break is just beginning.  Our meal takes us on a jaunt through Argentina.  Malbec, anyone?  But, wait!  There’s more…   In a land so diverse as to host both howler monkeys and penguins, both tropics and icy archipelagos, the wine is equally diverse.  Come discover something unexpected tonight!

Please note that shopping begins at 6:30 and that dinner will begin at 7:00 as usual.
