    6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join us Thursday, January 26th, as Chef Jacques and Team proudly welcome’s legendary winegrower Jim Law of Linden Vineyards to L’Auberge Chez François. Law founded Linden Vineyards on 76 acres of long-abandoned apple orchard in the Blue Ridge Mountains about 70 miles southwest of Washington D.C., in 1983 after several years of looking for vineyard land with high elevations and east facing slopes. This was the first modern winery in North Virginia, an ever since Law has pioneered growing fine European grape varieties in Virginia’s challenging conditions, while mentoring a number of winegrowers who went on to found properties like RdV, Glen Manor and Delaplane. He has continued researching and tweaking his methods, leading to improvements not only in the quality of his own wines, but Virginia wine more generally.

Still, Law says he isn’t done innovating. “The great joy of my life has been experimenting and trying to discover what this new terroir is truly capable of,” he says.
