What better way is there to celebrate Spring than to taste wine? Each Spring, Montpelier opens its gates for their wine festival, hosting numerous Virginia wineries. The festival also provides cooking classes, a cornucopia of food offerings, and a variety of live musical entertainment.
The Montpelier Wine Festival is a perfect opportunity to introduce yourself to a selection of Virginia wines without having to travel all over the state. Because I am unable to attend the Blackburg Fork & Cork Festival (a really fun Festival that I am sad to miss) this year, I am planning to attend the Montpelier Wine Festival as a way to kick off Spring!
The festival will feature 24 wineries this year including:
Barboursville Vineyards, Burnley Vineyards and Daniel Cellars, Cooper Vineyards, DelFosse Vineyard & Winery, Democracy Vineyards, Foggy Ridge Cider, Gabriele Rausse Winery, Glass House Winery, Horton Vineyards, Jefferson Vineyard, Lake Anna Winery, Lazy Days, Mattaponi Winery, Narmada Winery, New Kent Winery, Old House Vineyards, Peaks of Otter Winery, Prince Michel Vineyards, Reynard Florence Vineyard, Rockbridge Vineyard, Stone Mountain Vineyards, Trump Winery, Villa Appalaccia Winery, and Well Hung Vineyards.
