Jazz and Wine - a perfect pairing

Posted on July 29, 2011

Few things go together as well as jazz and wine........maybe peanut butter and chocolate or Jimmy Choos and my feet!  We celebrate and enjoy our long cultivated relationship with fine wines sipped slowly while enjoying jazz standards of yesteryear.  In this era where time is at such a premium, nothing is more enjoyable than not having to rush - to take one's time, enjoy the company of another and relish the taste of a hearty glass of vino.

Located here in Richmond VA, we are lucky to be in the heart of VA Wine country.  To our west is the lovely Cooper Vineyards with their brand new tasting room.  This modern architectural feat is completely Green and is LEED certified to prove it.  You can sip, relax and look out over the countryside while enjoying the sounds of their grand piano.  Yes - a grand piano!!!  A singer's dream!

We always go home with a bottle or two of the Coopertage in both red and white.  Their Viognier is especially delicious as well as the Petite Verdot.  Plus this winery is dog friendly (with a special fondness for poodles which is dear to my heart!) so bring your furry and non-furry friends out and spend the afternoon with us.  We'll be back on Sundays from 1:30 - 4:30 pm thru the end of the year.  Join us Aug 7, Sept 4, Oct 2, Nov 13 and Dec 11.  See you there!
