Join us on the expansive estate of Ken and Kavelle Bajaj
as we travel around the world via 26 wines representing each letter of the alphabet from A-Z – most of which you’ve never tasted before and will likely never taste again. Grapetionary A-Z is equal parts discovery and decadence. 

Jason Tesauro, author, speaker and head sommelier at Barboursville Vineyards hosts this high-impact event fit for seasoned oenophiles and beginners alike. Guests will also enjoy a sublime, multi-course meal prepared by renowned Chef Nicholas Stefanelli. It’ll be “Masseria in MD” as Stefanelli closes the restaurant and brings his entire team to us. Check out the quick promo video of Jason and Nick as they plan the menu.

Attendees will walk away with a lifetime of wine knowledge and forge new relationships with some of the top decision-makers in the region. It’s a bucket list event with the best of class in wine, food, fellowship, spirits and cigars. Because Grapetionary A-Z is a celebration of the fine things that come with success and hard work, it is a perfect environment to entertain a client or reward an outstanding employee. We encourage you to bring your team and tout your brand with one of our sponsorship packages. 

See you at A-Z!

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Medstar Georgetown University Hospital.

Grapetionary A-Z is an interactive wine tasting event curated by sommeliers and hosted by Jason Tesauro of Modern Gentleman. Based on Master of Wine Jancis Robinson's monumental tome, "Wine Grapes: A Complete Guide to 1,368 Vine Varieties, Including Their Origins and Flavours,” attendees taste varietal wines representing each letter of the alphabet from A-Z. 

But you won't find Chardonnay or Merlot in this line-up. Our letter C might be Coda di Volpe, Charbono or Cornali. And M could be represented by Magliocco, Mencia or Moschofilero. Grapetionary is an engaging social affair and an enlightening bucket list event suitable for any level of oenophile from novice to Master Sommelier. Beginners are wowed by the breadth of discovery; experienced tasters are impressed with the impeccable curation and quality.
