West Virginia Wine Festivals
Want to get out and taste great wines in the great
state of West Virginia? Then look for a a West Virginia Wine Festival! These wine
events are a perfect way to fill a sunny Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Local West 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. West 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 Parkerburg, Point Pleasant, Morgantown
and Martinsburg, there are wine festivals that bring you the best samplings
of WV wines. Many specialize in fine WV 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 West Virginia Wine & Arts
Festival in Martinsburg in May, Festival of Food & Wines in
Morgantown in January, or Annual Appalachain Festival in Beckley
in August, you may find wines from Roane Vineyards, Robert F Pliska
& Co Winery, Daniel Vineyards, Kirkwood Winery, and many others
at West 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 Charleston, Beckley, Lewisburg
and Addison you can find a local wine, food and music festival that
will perfect your WV 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!
