Last night, Camden Fairfax Corner hosted a fun, interactive, and educational event about wine. Two wine enthusiasts, Jayme and Lauren, visited the property in hopes to share their knowledge of wine and food with our residents. Both full time teachers and part time employees at a local vineyard, these two ladies were able to give the experience of a professional wine tasting on a teacher’s budget.
Approximately 50 residents attended this event, and some with their personal wine glasses in tow. With the assistance of our leasing staff, we were able to create the atmosphere and present an event that can cost up to $30 at a vineyard. Our event was free for all residents and their guests.
The evening started with a glass of Riesling. The wine was paired with a wheat cracker topped with gruyere cheese and a slice of granny smith apple. Second, a glass of Pino Grigio and a mini caprese kabob of cherry tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, and balsamic reduction were passed out. Moving on to reds, a Pinot Noir served with brie and raspberry jam on top of a butter cracker. Finally, we wrapped up with a Cabernet Sauvignon, and enjoyed a rosemary cracker topped with goat cheese and sun dried tomato.
Residents also enjoyed chocolate and port wine brownies as well as peach sangria.
- 1 bottle of Moscato 1.5 liters
- 1 cup peach schnapps
- 2 peaches, sliced

The night was so special and it was great to see our community get together all in the name of wine.
