This Memorial Day weekend is a big weekend at Barrel Oak Winery in Northern Virginia. They will be celebrating their 5th anniversary of their opening. At the same time they will be supporting the Red Cross in its efforts to help Oklahoma victims.
We first met Brian and Sharon Roeder, the owners of Barrel Oak Winery, before the winery was built. We’ve enjoyed watching the progress of the winery and vineyards from the very beginning.
They chose an ideal location for the winery just off of frequently traveled Interstate 66. This makes it easy to stop by while traveling or easy to get to and spend the day. After five years the winery has acres of vineyards surrounding the beautiful facility.
In celebration of their 5th Anniversary they have several groups providing live music.
Friday: Michael Stephenson 5:30-8:30pm
Saturday: The Folsom Prisoners 5:30-8:30pm
Sunday: The Electeds 1-5pm
Sunday: The Karl Stoll Power Trio 5:30-8:30pm
Monday: Steve Hudson: 1-5pm
In addition, wine lovers are welcome to bring picnic baskets, children, grandparents and dogs. Wine tasting experiences at the John Marshall Tasting Experience will be 25 percent off.
In light of the tragic tornado in Oklahoma, Barrel Oak Winery is donating two percent of its gross proceeds from wine sales over Memorial Day Weekend, from Friday thru Monday, to the Red Cross to help the victims of the devastating tornado.
Support of charities is nothing new for Barrel Oak Winery. Throughout the year they have a variety of special events for a variety of charities.
When visiting Barrel Oak Winery this weekend be sure to buy a bottle of wine to help support Oklahoma.
