2018 Featured Vendors

We are excited to announce that Virginia, New Zealand, Australia and Oregon wines and Virginia distilled spirits will be sampled and, in many cases, sold at the Saturday and Sunday Walk-Around Grand Tastings (March 3-4, 2018) - the biggest and most popular events at the Expo.    Please scroll down to review all wineries, distilleries, specialty food and other vendors that will be represented at the 2018 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.

Please note that some of the wines from the list of Virginia wineries and almost all of the wines from the Guest Region wineries (Oregon, New Zealand and Australia) will be represented and poured by our knowledgable volunteers and will not be available for sale.

Attendees will be permitted to sample and buy most of the Virginia wines by the glass and by the bottle, but the bottles are only for off-premise consumption.  Virginia spirits may be sampled and bottles may be 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.

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.
