John and Kelly Delmare, owners of Rappahannock Cellars, began their careers as vintners in the Santa Clara Valley of California, but yearned for a more family oriented place to raise their twelve children. They found the Piedmont region of Virginia to be the perfect place for family and wine! We’re pleased that our family business will team up with theirs to bring you an evening of delicious food and spectacular wine. Allan Delmare will join us for this event. The cost of the dinner is $ 85 per person, exclusive of tax and gratuity. To make a reservation, please call Girasole at 540-253-5501.
