- Aug 28Wine Cellar Tour and Dinner
In June of 1960, the double doors of the now-fabled red barn swung wide, receiving the first guests of novice restaurateurs Thad Eure, Jr. and Charles Winston. What was this mysterious red building perched atop a hill so far from civilization? Unbeknownst to all, that June night many years ago, the southern gentlemen with no previous restaurant experience established both a landmark and a legend far outside of Raleigh where nobody else dared conceive success.
Join us for a tour of the wine cellar and a delicious dinner.
Reservations are requested by Thursday, July 23 at 9am
