Start Your Weekend With Happy Hour at District Winery
Perched right on the banks of the Potomac, it’s no wonder why District Winery is a popular wedding spot. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the private event space also wrap around to the main dining room—so you can experience the stunning views even if you’re just there for happy hour.
The oenophiles in charge of District Winery actually craft their vino in-house, which allows them to promise a perfect pour every time. They collaborate with vineyards all across the country to source the best grapes for their wines, then follow a painstaking process to ferment and cellar-age the booze before it hits your glass. You’re welcome to take a tour of the wine-making area, but you can also just enjoy a drink and a bite at the in-house wine bar. Share upscale small plates like fried Brussels sprouts with seed brittle, honey, and rosemary or house-made pork sausage sliders with caramelized onions and barbecue aioli. For the final course, indulge in the fresh strawberry compote with pastry cream over a puff pastry.
