At the SoVA Winter Wine Fest, held on February 16 from 12-6 p.m., twelve different vineyards collect more than 60 varieties of wine for visitors to sample under one roof. They also arrange for gourmet snacks to sate hunger and live music to tickle the eardrum.
Southern Virginia Wine Fest
A coalition of nine different wineries founded Southern Virginia Wine Fest in 2009, and it continues to introduce visitors to the finest vintages crafted by local residents. Although the festival has expanded to include 12 growers, it still provides the opportunity to chat personally with winemakers and vineyard owners about the process behind making their bottled beverages. The participants peruse more than 60 different wines, complementing the libations with specialty foods and live music throughout the day. The festival even offers a specialty passport tour, which includes visits to all 12 vineyards and stops at notable sites, local eateries, and Dionysian temples along the way.
