Burnt Hill represents a new frontier in American wine. Though we're not inventing anything from scratch -- we're leveraging ten years of experience at Old Westminster Winery + emulating others who farm biodynamically/sustainably to make wines that inspire us. Rather than sit back quietly waiting for three years to release our first bottle of wine and saying "hey! here it is! come buy it!", we're hosting a festival to celebrate folks who inspire the way that we farm and elevate the beauty of natural wine.
The name of said festival is, “Summer Solstice”
Summer Solstice is a celebration of the best low-intervention wine producers under a giant circus tent atop a serene hillside at Burnt Hill in Clarksburg, Maryland. It's going to be a landmark gathering of the natural wine community in DC/MD/VA featuring farmers, art, music, provisions and purveyors.
This event is open to the public but tickets are sold at a first come, first serve basis.
