Virginia Wine Festivals

Virginia wines are flowing at a festival near you.

chesapeakewinefestVirginia is a “Commonwealth of Wine” – with more than 250 wineries dotting the landscape. Virginia is a wine destination unlike any other with lavish scenery, breathtaking views, warm small towns and monumental historic sites.

Virginia is one of the only wine destinations in the country where visitors can kayak to a winery, enjoy bluegrass music while sipping local wines, sample regional wines at a National Park, or enjoy wine at a National Historic Landmark.

Annual wine festivals vary just as much as the wineries themselves, offering wine lovers the chance to savor the flavors of Virginia’s vintages at events big and small. Below is a sampling of some of Virginia’s most popular annual wine festivals, with many more found here.
