2018 Featured Vendors
We are excited to announce that Virginia, New Zealand, Australia and Oregon wineries (plus a smattering of wineries from other wine regions), Virginia distilleries, independent restaurants, artisan food producers, and other food and beverage vendors will be sampling and, in many cases, selling their products at the Saturday and Sunday Walk-Around Grand Tastings (March 3-4, 2018) - the biggest and most popular events at the Expo.
These exhibitors will be presenting their products at the spectacular, world-class, recently revitalized Main Street Station in historic Shockoe Bottom in downtown Richmond, Virginia.
This list below will be updated periodically, since it is expected that additional exhibitors will make commitments in the weeks leading up to the Expo. Also, most New Zealand, Australia and Oregon wineries will not be recognized on the vendor list seen below. Non-winery exhibitors are listed below the list of wineries.
Attendees will be permitted to sample and buy most of the Virginia wines by the bottle and the glass. Virginia spirits may be sampled and purchased for off-premise consumption. Some Virginia wines will only be available to sample. All non-Virginia wine (New Zealand, Australia and Oregon wines included) will be available to sample but not purchase per Virginia ABC rules.
Also, bottles of Virginia wine may be opened at the event for immediate consumption or purchased to go.
Hundreds of bottles of top-scoring, outstanding wines and spirits will be available to taste.
Wineries will have knowledgable representatives—in many cases the owners and winemakers—on hand to showcase and discuss their wines to enhance your tasting experience.
NOTE: The vendors below are from the 2017 Virginia Wine Expo. The 2018 vendors will go live at the end of January.
