Vintage Virginia Wine Festival

On Sunday I went to the Vintage Virginia Wine Festival with three friends.  The festival was out at Bull Run Park out in Centerville, Virginia about 45 minutes away from home.

Over 30 wineries from all over Virginia were there.  You were given a wristband and a glass when you walked in. Everything was spread out in the field and under tents.  There were also additional vendors selling things like jewelry, clothes and wine accessories as well as a row of food trucks.

All at the festivalWilliamsburg was one of my favorite wineries of the day.  I ended up coming home with six bottles of wine from three different vineyards.  Most of the vineyards were running specials on select wines or offered discounts for more than three bottles purchased so I didn’t pay more than 15 dollars for any of them.
