The Gloucester County Chamber of Commerce to Host Gloucester Wine Festival Oct. 26
The 4th annual event will feature 10 award winning wineries from across the state.
The 4th Annual Gloucester Wine Festival will return to Brent and Becky’s Bulbs on Oct. 26 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., featuring 10 Virginia wineries.
“Each year, we’ve grown the wine festival and are thrilled to bring this event to the Middle Peninsula community,” said Gloucester County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Makalia Records. The Chamber hosts the wine festival each year.
“This event is more than about wine. It’s about celebrating a growing industry in our state, bringing our community together and showcasing what Gloucester has to offer.”
The wine festival will feature wine tastings, wine educational seminars, live musical entertainment, an assortment of vendors and fine food.
Confirmed wineries this year include Good Luck Cellars of Kilmarnock, Saude Creek Vineyards of Lanexa, James River Cellars of Glen Allen, Vault Field Vineyards of Kinsale, Notaviva Vineyards of Loudoun County, Athena Vineyards of Heathsville, Trump Winery of Charlottesville, Mattaponi Winery of Spotsylvania, Chateau Morrisette of Floyd County and DeVault Family Vineyards of Concord.
“There’s a reason Virginia has been called one of the top up and coming wine regions in the world – we have talented winemakers creating incredible wines from grapes grown right here in the Commonwealth, often in vineyards not far from us here in Gloucester,” said Dayton Wiese, President of the Gloucester County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
“Winemaking is part of our history, dating back to Jamestown settlers, and part of our future. I think we can all cheers to that!”
Jessica’s On Main, VA Blue Crab, AGORA (The Greek Market), Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Juan’s Mexican Café and Riverwalk / Water Street Grille will be on site throughout the festival offering a range of cuisine.
Brent and Becky’s Bulbs is located at 7900 Daffodil Lane.
