See you there!

We are honored and excited to welcome Chef Dylan Fultineer and team of Richmond's Rappahannock Restaurant, and Tracey Brandt of Donkey & Goat Winery to Manakintowne! Since the first time Chef Dylan brought his team out to see where some of their fantastic food is raised, we have shared a vision for just such a meal. 


Rappahannock says:


Guests will enjoy a magnificent spread amidst the fields. Chef Dylan Fultineer has designed a menu to highlight the wines of Donkey & Goat Winery and the early summer produce of Manakintowne and other Virginia farms. 

Prior to the dinner, beginning at 5:30, guest can enjoy a walking tour of Manakintowne, to include three different food and wine stations. Then, at 7:00, guests will be seated for dinner.


From day one, Chef Dylan Fultineer has striven to conceptualize dishes that highlight the excellence in Virginia meat and produce. A key factor in this has been his eagerness to expose his staff to the food they serve; from its origin (the farm), to its end (the plate). Rappahannock Restaurant and Richmond staple, Manakintowne Specialty Growers, want to share this experience with you.

Assisting Chef Dylan is Hosea Roberts, Rappahannock's certified sommelier. Hosea's passion for wine actually began with a passion for food--he started working with Rappahannock as a line cook when it opened in 2012. This double-edged passion led him to seek wineries that took their agriculture as seriously as their wine-making. Donkey & Goat does just that, and has paved the way for the Natural Wine Movement in the U.S.

As summer approaches, the efforts of Chef Dylan Fultineer, Rob and Jo Pendergraph of Manakintowne Specialty Growers, and Tracey Brandt of Donkey & Goat Winery will combine for this very special Farm Dinner.


Join Us!


Tickets: $150

Tasting and tour begins at 5:30 pm, followed by an open air, sit-down dinner at 7:00 pm amidst the spectacular fields of Manakintowne farm.
