Hosted by Heart of Virginia Wine Trail, the April Fool’s Wine Festival takes place at the James River Cellars Winery in Glen Allen and brings together other vintners from locations such as Cooper, Grayhaven, and Lake Anna. During the course of six hours, visitors can sample varietals along with gourmet food pairings from Food a la carte by Gregory Grill as they mingle with craft vendors. Guests are also encouraged to set up picnics during the event, where winos can enjoy the music of Planet Full of Blues on Saturday and The Taters on Sunday.<p>
Heart of Virginia Wine Trail
Heart of Virginia Wine Trail honors its home state by guiding guests through six wineries—James River Cellars, Cooper Vineyards, Lake Anna Winery, Weston Vineyards, Mattaponi Winery, and Grayhaven Winery. Although not included with this Groupon, the wine ambassadors proffer passports that award patrons tastings at each of the wineries and encourage them to enjoy the scenic countryside while navigating the path in between. Both regular tastings and special events typically include food pairings and a chance to talk to knowledgeable enophiles.
