What the heck does AhSo mean?!
An AhSo is a tool used to open a bottle of wine, when a corkscrew may not do the job. It is often used for older bottles when the cork may crumble if tackled with a corkscrew.
If food enhanced by wine (or vice-versa) is your thing, you will fit in just fine at AhSo. What we call “Micro Wine Dinners,” a small, themed tasting menu with beverage pairings that can be enjoyed by as few as two guests or an entire table, will always be on the menu. This allows us to really take advantage of the products we source, as well as the great wines the world has to offer.
We feel lucky to be in this region: Where else in the world do you have a marine ecosystem (Chesapeake Bay), thousands of acres of fertile agricultural areas, stellar wine-growing conditions and a major metropolitan city all within less than 100 miles?! With these resources at our fingertips, sourcing at AhSo will be paramount. We will use locally sourced product whenever possible, and the growing conditions in Virginia make that easy and often. The menu will change as often as our creativity and the supply from land and sea allow.
We look forward to seeing you at AhSo!
