Treat yourself to an evening of Virginia wines at the historic 1740s home of John Ball, colonial farmer and miller, relaxing under a pergola bearing a 100+ year old wisteria vine. There, you will be treated to a tasting and talk on Virginia wines, guided by a Virginia wine expert from Wine Pro Tours. Enjoy more wine and light refreshments on an after-hours tour of John Ball’s colonial cabin–an Arlington Historical Society museum and on the National Register of Historic Places. Remarkably, the cabin has survived for over 260 years–evolving from an isolated yeoman’s farm adjacent to George Washington’s Forest and Four Mile Run into an island of colonial history on a plot of land that was once part of the Virginia Colony, then Fairfax County, Washington, D.C., Alexandria County, and finally Arlington County–the cabin remaining little changed all the while as the neighborhood grew up around it. Come visit, relax and explore, and enjoy our Wine & Wisteria evening! Tickets now available via Eventbrite at Wine and Wisteria.
Proceeds from the event go to support the museums and mission of the Arlington Historical Society, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization. Additional donations gratefully accepted.
