We are excited to announce that Virginia, Bordeaux + Loire Valley, France and Washington State wines and Virginia distilled spirits will be sampled at the Saturday and Sunday Walk-Around Grand Tastings (March 7-8, 2020) - the biggest and most popular events at the Expo.  Please visit the ticket page to buy tickets to these events and more.

We will post the wineries, distilleries, and cideries that will be represented at the 2020 Expo beginning in early February on this page and Facebook.  A more comprehensive, final list will be posted on the Expo website (the Walk-Around Grand Tasting pages) towards the end of February 2020.   

Please note that some of the wines from the list of Virginia wineries and almost all of the wines from the Guest Region wineries (Bordeaux + Loire Valley, France and Washington State) 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 bottle (bottles may be consumed either on- or off-premise).  Virginia spirits may be sampled and bottles may be purchased for off-premise consumption only.  Some Virginia wines will only be available to sample.  All non-Virginia wine (Bordeaux + Loire Valley, France and Washington State) 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 and distilleries will have knowledgable representatives—in many cases the owners, winemakers and distillers—on hand to showcase and discuss their wines to enhance your tasting experience.
