A four-course dinner with Chatham Vineyards wine pairings awaits you on Friday, June 11.
Normally known for living life in the fast lane, Richmond Raceway Complex is taking a step back and “wining” down Friday, June 11, for the first Wine Maker’s Dinner in the luxurious Torque Club—the modern, night club-like enclosed venue overlooking Richmond International Raceway. The event features the wines of Chatham Vineyards and a four-course dinner provided by Americrown—the exclusive caterer of Richmond International Raceway.
