2 Days, 50 Wineries
The Biggest Virginia Wine Meet-Up Ever
Join winery fans across the state for the first Virginia Wine Love Weekend.
Fifty wineries are reserving a VIP table on May 13 and/or 14 to welcome their biggest fans: you, and the entire community of Virginia Wine Lovers! Each winery will put its own spin on the weekend with customized tastings, guest hosts, and lots of surprises. Pick a winery—pick a bunch!—and stop by to meet kindred souls, share favorite winery stories, and trade travel tips.
Here's a quick list of all 50 participating wineries, and here they are on a map.
You can find all the details here, including:
Winery Activities. Dates/times each winery is participating and what fun they have planned, including special tastings, games, prizes, tours, guest hosts and more.
Escorted Tours. Want someone else to do the driving? Book an escorted tour, complete with transportation, lunch, and tastings.
Road Trip Recommendations. Want to try some new-to-you wineries? Check out the growing list of stay & dine recommendations from participating wineries. Book early!
AND...to show their appreciation for all your #VAWineLove, wineries are giving back... to you!
Virginia Wine Loves You Back GIVEAWAY. Each time you check in at a winery's "Reserved for VA Wine Lovers" table on May 13 & 14, you'll be entered into a statewide drawing of winery prizes. See the growing prize list here. All prizes will be announced on May 22.
Share the love.
How do I participate? Is there a cost? Do I need a reservation? Can I bring friends?
Mark the dates on your calendar - May 13 and 14.
Pick some participating wineries you love and/or want to get to know, and, yes!, invite some friends.
Check details here to see which days wineries are participating, what activities they're planning, if there's a cost, and whether any advance reservations are required.
Join the Virginia Wine Love Group on Facebook to keep up with all the late-breaking news and additions (optional)
I have the 2023 Virginia Gold Medal Trail Passport app. Are any of the Gold Medal wineries on the Passport participating in Virginia Wine Love Weekend?
Why Virginia Wine Love Weekend? Because wine builds community. Notice how you can't help but strike up a conversation at winery tasting bars? What's your favorite winery? you ask. Where you headed next? they ask. It's a universal truth: wine brings people together.
This this very first Virginia Wine Love Weekend is a chance for the 11,000+ members of the Virginia Wine Love Facebook group and all Virginia wine fans to meet up, geek out over wine country stories, and share some #VAWineLove.
