Discover Virginia's Vibrant Wine Festivals & Events

It's no secret that Virginia is known for its thriving wine industry, offering a variety of events throughout the years for wine lovers and newcomers. These events range from wine festivals to vineyard tours, and wine tastings to pairings with local food. There is so much wine to try and wine related activities to do across the state that I could never do it all justice in one blog post. But, with summer 2024 upon us, I thought I'd highlight a few Virginia wine happenings that you can build into your summer plans:


1. Winery Events and Tours: Many of Virginia's wineries host their own events throughout the year, including seasonal celebrations, live music nights, and wine and food pairings. These events offer a more intimate experience and a chance to explore the unique flavors of Virginia wine.

Whether you're a wine connoisseur or just looking to explore something new, Virginia's wine events offer a chance to indulge in the state's rich viticultural heritage and enjoy beautiful landscapes. Keep an eye out for upcoming events by following your favorite wineries on social media, or bookmark the Virginia Wine website and plan a visit to experience the best of Virginia wine! PS: If you love good music and dancing, don't miss out on the Special Occasions Band live at The Winery at Bull Run on Friday, May 17th.


2. Town Point Virginia Wine Festival: Happening in downtown Norfolk, both in the spring (May) and the fall (October), this is the premier Virginia wine event in the state. Buy a day-pass or pull together a group of friends for a table and sip on some of Virginia's most loved wine, cider and more. There's also great food and vendors to shop. Visit the Festevents website for more.

3. Shenandoah Valley Wine Festival: Held in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley (Winchester, VA) during June, this festival features tastings from local wineries, live music, and delicious food. It's a great opportunity to enjoy the stunning scenery while sipping on some of Virginia's finest wines. Also, make it a weekend by staying locally to get in a hike or drive Skyline to get in some stunning views. For more details, visit the Shenandoah Valley Wine Trail website.

4. George Washington's Mount Vernon: At Virginia's historic Mount Vernon, they host an annual Spring Wine Festival and Sunset Tour each May, and a Fall Wine Festival in October. There is so much to see and do at Mount Vernon, so if you have never been, definitely put this on your list of Virginia places to visit.

Whether you're a wine connoisseur or just looking to explore something new, Virginia's wine events offer a chance to indulge in the state's viticultural heritage and enjoy beautiful landscapes. Keep an eye out for upcoming events and plan a visit to experience the best of Virginia wine.
