What could be more fun than cupcakes and wine together? Join us for this spectacular wine tasting event with both sweet and savory selections.

Join us at this inaugural event at Barrel Thief featuring wines from Walnut City Wineworks paired with the cupcakes of new Patterson and Libbie neighbor, Pearl's Cupcake Shoppe. Entertainment will include live music by the Folk Rock duo of Misty Ridge.  Special VIPs will be at the event to share words of inspiration regarding Diversity and the RVA Community.

The Gay Fathers Community of Richmond is celebrating their 21st anniversary and bringing Richmond together to celebrate community, diversity and fatherhood. Partnered with Virginia Pride, Diversity Richmond, and Stonewall Sports, we are looking forward to an evening of great wine, delicious cupcakes and cool music.

Barrel Thief Wine Shop and Cafe is Richmond’s premier wine store where you can eat and drink. Barrel Thief features over 400 small production wines and has become the best place in Richmond to taste, drink, and purchase great bottles from all over the world. Select wines from Walnut City Winemakers, from the Williamette Valley in Oregon, will be showcased at this celebration.

Pearl's Cupcake Shoppe will bring their award winning cupcakes specifically paired with the featured wines for you to enjoy. Pearl's is excited to sponsor this event with their new neighbor Barrel Thief to celebrate their move to their new location at Patterson and Libbie.

This event has a ticket price of $20 and includes a wine tasting of 3 featured wines, a glass of one of the featured wines, a cupcake pairing, live music, and a charitable donation to a great cause. Tickets may be paid online through Eventbrite. Tickets are limited, and will sell out, so purchase in advance. If tickets are still available, the cover charge will be $25 at the door.

All proceeds for this event are considered a charitable contribution and will go to fund the Gay Fathers Community of Richmond, a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization.
