Justin Trabue, owner of Ward Four Wines, and Erica Christian of Empowering the Diner and Satiated, are coming together for one night of witchy vibes and delicious wines! We present, The Witch, the Vine, and the Wine, a fundraiser to support Erica through the current medical crisis she is navigating.
Erica has worked through the severe pain and extreme difficulties associated with both illnesses she navigates: Ankylosing Spondylitis, an inflammatory disease and autoimmune disorder, and Fibromyalgia, a chronic musculoskeletal pain disorder.
After losing access to her medication because of poor healthcare practices, she can no longer work consistently. She needs financial support as she seeks treatment plans and care that allows her to thrive beyond survival and get back to the work she loves.
MEET THE WINEMAKER
Our favorite Head Wine Witch is coming home to DC to pour and talk about Ward Four Wines. She'll be pouring 2oz tastes of two of her beautiful wines: 2022 Barbera and her 2022 Mouvedre!
MEET THE BOTTLE ARTIST
Local multimedia artist Rhythm Bowers will be present to talk about the design for the bottles and her artwork! Meet her, get your bottle signed, and check out her art!
VIBE WITH DJ XSA
DJ Xsa will be there to set the witchy and lifted vibe as she spins to bring it all together! She's a sensory queen and perfectly connects sonics to the moment.
