A Wine & Roses Garden Party @ The Glebe House

There is nothing more enchanting on a summer evening than to enjoy a glass of your favorite vino in an elegant and historic garden. With this concept in mind, the Glebe House on Hollow Road in Woodbury is hosting a garden party on June 5 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The highlight of the event of course is the beautiful garden designed by famed English gardner, Gertrude Jekyll. It is the only extant garden designed by Jekyll in the United States. In June waves of flowers are beginning to pop in swathes of colors, patterns and textures.

Guests will enjoy a special white wine bottled by Woodbury winery, Walker Road Vineyards that is named, “Gertrude’s Garden” in honor of Gertrude Jekyll. There will also be hors d’ oeuvres as well as other wines, a silent auction and the chance to tour the museum in the evening. Tickets are $25 and all proceeds will support the Glebe House. For tickets call the museum at 203-263-2855 or email office@glebehousemuseum.org.

About the Glebe House 

Nestled in the Litchfield Hills in the heart of Woodbury, the Glebe House offers visitors a glimpse of the Revolutionary War era in Connecticut. This 18th century farmhouse is furnished as the home of the Reverend John Rutgers Marshall and his family who lived in the glebe during the turmoil of the American War for Independence.
