Belle Grove Wine Fest
August 24 @ 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Join us on Saturday, August 24 from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. for Belle Grove’s Annual Wine Fest!
The highlight will be tastings from Virginia’s vibrant wine, cider, mead, beer, and spirits industry.
Guests with tasting tickets will receive a souvenir tasting glass and be able to sample from all participants as well as make purchases by the bottle or case; some vendors will also sell their products by the glass.
There will be live music throughout the day by Robbie Limon, who will play acoustic classic rock hits from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The Critton Hollow String Band folk trio will be on the stage from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. Guests may bring chairs and pop-up tents to enjoy the music on the lawn.
There will be an array of artisan and merchandise vendors, and the event will also include 30-minute cooking demonstrations in upper level of the Beverley B. Shoemaker Welcome Center.
Food will be available for purchase from Shaffers Barbecue and Market (Middletown) serving its famous BBQ and 0 to 60 Energy Café (Winchester) serving gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, cheese plates, wraps, smoothies, and coffee treats.
The Massanutten Antique Tractor and Gasoline Engine Club will also attend the event and will have tractors on display.
