RWT Beverage Showcase

September 10th, 2023

This Inaugural Richmond West Trail Craft Beverage Showcase hosted at Dover Hall was unlike any other tasting event in Virginia. Guests indulged in the finest craft beers, wines, ciders, and spirits from local purveyors in Goochland and Powhatan, featuring our very own 7 Lady Vineyards wine. This fundraiser event aimed to promote the libations of 12 artisan-led small businesses on the Richmond West Craft Beverage Trail. Those who attended this showcase not only treated themselves to an unparalleled tasting experience but also supported the growth and development of these small businesses. The ticket sales also went to supporting two local non-profits: Goochland Cares and Arms Wide Open Childhood Cancer Foundation. VIP guests were welcomed into the magical Dover Hall to indulge in exclusive tastings, gourmet cuisine crafted by Executive Chef, Leah Randolph, and self-guided tours of our opulent first floor. VIP patrons then joined the General Admission guests in our brand-new Glass Hall for more beverage tastings, live music by Dead Letter Officers and James River Junction, and tasty bites from River City Wood Fire Pizza, Saltys Lobster, and Westray's Finest Ice Cream.
