Let’s raise our glasses and make a toast to all the vineyards and the hard working people that bring us the wine, so we can get together to celebrate your goodness.
The Grayson County Wine & Brew Festival is near and dear to my heart. It is in my own backyard, in Independence, Va. I love the music, the people, the wine, and of course, it supports a great cause- to help preserve the Historic Landmark. The proceeds benefit the Historic 1908 Courthouse Foundation, a non-profit with the mission of preserving the Historic 1908 Courthouse for future generations.
Here are just a few more around the state. For a more detailed list go to Virginia is for Lovers and plan your year full of spirits:
The Virginia Wine Festival which is the oldest wine festival with over 50 of Va. best wineries.
Floyd, VA, has – Black Dog Beach Music Festival.
If you want to add history, go to the Fall Wine Festival & Sunset Tour at Mount Vernon and meet “George and Martha Washington” on the Mansion’s piazza.
And in Nellysford – Hill Top Berry Farm & Winery Blackberry Harvest and Music Festival not only can you taste the wine but you can still go into the fields and pick your own blackberries.
So no matter where you are come on out, make a toast to Life, Love, Happiness, and a Great Harvest. Keep the wine flowing. As you can see we Virginians don’t miss a chance to celebrate. CHEERS Virginia!
