The Goddin-Taylor House Natural & Biodynamic Wine + Food Mingler in Historic Jackson Ward

The Goddin-Taylor House
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
136 W Clay St
Richmond, Virginia 23219

The stunning Goddin-Taylor House, built in 1820 and restored by the Historic Richmond Foundation, is one of the oldest houses in Historic Jackson Ward and is the uber-cool setting for an exciting mingler featuring food and wine curated and presented by Lance Lemon and Kristen Gardner Beal of Richmond-based RichWine.

You're free to explore the house, which started as a Federal style dwelling, with subsequent Greek Revival, Italianate and Queen Anne additions.  And all the while you'll savor a new natural or biodynamic wine presented every 15 minutes while you graze on sumptous bites.  The evening will culminate with full glass pours and remarks by the hosts.

Enjoy a rare opportunity to meld history, architecture, fine wine and artisan food at a social event you'll cherish for a long time to come.
