Experience Hampton Roads' most anticipated Wine Festival of the fall season along the Downtown Norfolk Waterfront. This year's fall favorite will showcase more than 30 wineries with over 200 of the Commonwealth's finest wine varieties. Festival guests can enjoy the company of friends and family along the Elizabeth River for a weekend-long harvest of Virginia wineries in Town Point Park. Budding sommeliers and everyday enthusiasts can sample and purchase premier wine vintages and enjoy live musical performances, along with gourmet foods and specialty wares.
This event is a food and wine lovers dream. Based on the concept that a wine's taste reflects the region it is grown in, or terroir, this event pairs Chatham Vineyard's wines with oysters that are cultivated in the waters surrounding the winery.
Just as wines are believed to be flavored by their region, oysters are also known for developing a distinct flavor, or Merroir, based on where they are grown. The evenings flavors will only be made more enjoyable by the beauty of the winery, which sits on Church Creek and is dotted with buildings that date to the early 1800's.
Mark your calendars now! Additional details and ticket information will be posted closer to the event date.
