Virginia Wine Festivals
Want to get out and taste great wines in the great
state of Virginia? Then look for a a Virginia Wine Festival! These wine
events are a perfect way to fill a sunny Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Local Virginia wineries set up booths and dispense their special wines
for you to taste and buy. It's a great way to sample a wide variety
of wines in one fun-filled place. Virginia has several wonderful wine
and food festivals scheduled every year for locals and visitors
to enjoy. At most festivals you can expect to pay a nominal entrance
fee that then allows you to sample all the wines offered at the
event. Others sell tasting tickets that you can use at your tasting
discretion. Located in and around cities like Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, Arlington
and Woodbridge, there are wine festivals that bring you the best samplings
of VA wines. Many specialize in fine VA wines as well as national
and international wines. At every booth you can expect to find helpful
and friendly wine experts eager to answer your questions.
At festivals like Rockbridge Wine Festival in September,
The Great Grapes Wine, Arts & Food Festival in Reston in April,
or Thomas Jefferson Wine Festival in Forest in November, you may
find wines from White Hall Vineyards, Loudoun Valley Vineyards,
Kobayashi Winery, Valhalla Vineyards, and many others at Virginia
wine festivals. In addition to wine, these events can include excellent
food to sample, prepared by local restaurants and chefs. And often
you can expect music too. After all, nothing pairs better with wine
than a little Jazz, or Blue Grass music. Local musicians are out
playing their best music to accompany the wine tasting. Whether
you're visiting Roanoke, Big Stone Gap, Richmond and Norfolk you
can find a local wine, food and music festival that will perfect
your VA vacation. The most popular time of year for these festivals
are the Fall and Summer months, but they are also scheduled during
holiday months as well. Imagine sipping some great wines while watching
the annual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony! So although, you may
not have time to visit all of Virginia's
great wineries, you can taste their wines at these great events.
So get out and enjoy! As always, Wine Bar Wineries is here to help
you find exciting wine, food and music festivals near you.
