Do you have food for sale?

We do have an assortment of meats, cheeses and spreads available for purchase.  On most weekends, we host a local food vendor. 

Do you allow outside food?

Our guests are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy outside or purchase one of our charcuterie plates or a la carte offerings. We ask that “outside food” stays outside and no large coolers, crock pots, or chaffing dishes. When we have a food vendor on site, we encourage guests support a local business and purchase directly from them. Effingham reserves the right to check food bags. No outside alcohol is permitted on property.

Do you allow outside alcoholic beverages?

Virginia State Law strictly prohibits all off-site liquor, beer and wine on our property. If you have purchased wine at other Virginia wineries, we kindly ask that it remain in your vehicle. Please respect this law, as our license is in jeopardy with any violations.

Do you serve beer?

Pretty soon!   We are currently in the permit process with Virginia ABC.  Once Permitted, we will have beer from local breweries available on Draft.
