Our wonderful friendship with Cave Ridge Vineyard will pick up right where we left off back in 2019. This quality, family-owned and operated vineyard and winery, located in the foothills overlooking the Shenandoah Valley, has been the Festival's exclusive wine vendor for many years. Their location features low rainfall and deep rocky soils which makes it ideal for growing the highest quality grapes used in Cave Ridge wines.
Outstanding wines will be offered for sale once again this year, featuring a variety of wines including award-winning Chardonnay and red wines. Wine will be sold by the glass and the bottle. Visit www.caveridge.com or their Facebook page for more details.

Welcome Bunnyman Brewing to the Burke Centre Festival's Wine & Beer Garden! What makes this so great is that Festival fans have been requesting the addition of beer for years, and our neighbors, the folks at Bunnyman, are the ones who made it happen. The community is really excited about this and we can't wait!
According to their web site, Bunnyman Brewing was born from an Urban Legend. It is owned and operated by locals Sam Gray and Eric Barrett, who both grew up in Fairfax County just miles from the brewery location. They met a few years ago at their kids' sporting events. Conversation on the sidelines uncovered a mutual passion for well-crafted beers and good company sharing a local story or two.
A common theme in those talks was just how few breweries are in Fairfax County compared to surrounding counties. Those conversations turned into a friendship and the vision of opening a brewery to fill the underserved area they are from was born.
