A hint of a chill enlivens the air, the foliage bursts with brilliant color, and glasses everywhere are raised to celebrate the harvest—the perfect backdrop for a new adventure.
Dating back to 1988, Virginia Wine lovers have embraced the season by supporting local farmers and producers, adventuring through Virginia’s vineyards and toasting to the Harvest. Even before formal celebrations, there’s always been something magical about October in Virginia Wine Country.
Harvest Party is a day for the Commonwealth to come together to toast the richness of our region. People in the city, the country, and the shore gather in restaurants, vineyards, private homes, and open fields for a feast of Virginia-grown food and wine.
October 15 marks the official day to celebrate Harvest Party, but you can celebrate all month long with events, bundles and special offerings.
With 300+ wineries and ten distinct regions spanning the state, Virginia has something for everyone. Embark on your next Virginia Wine adventure today.
