Welcome to the 9th Annual Virginia Wine Expo!
Welcome to the 9th edition of the Virginia Wine Expo (VWE), the nation's premier single-region wine and food event!
Please join us in Richmond, Virginia - "RVA" to the locals - for a special weekend culinary experience.
The RVA LOVES R&J Festival Pairs Perfectly with the Expo
For those passionate about wine and opera - specifically Romeo and Juliet - we have a perfect pairing for you: The VWE and the RVA LOVES R&J Festival! RVA Loves R&J Festival (February 12-February 21, 2016) is anchored by major productions of Romeo & Juliet by Virginia Opera and Richmond Ballet and takes place in Richmond at the same time as the Expo. The transformative power of ballet and opera will provide provocative insight into this timeless love story.
Complete your Virginia Wine Expo experience with RVA Loves R&J and your February in Richmond will be the month to celebrate with the ones you love. Experience a perfect pairing: The Virginia Wine Expo and Romeo and Juliet!
What to Expect at the Expo
We think you'll love RVA! In fact, TRAVEL+LEISURE magazine and NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC just put RVA on their respective international lists of 'Best Places to Travel' (for amazing food, craft beverages and more) in 2016. Read all about it here and here.
We've made major improvements to virtually all of our events to enhance your experience. You're going to get more of what you love - great wine, amazing food, knowledgeable wine representatives, top-notch chefs - at next year's Expo.
Also, we have chosen Italy as the Guest Region for the 2016 Virginia Wine Expo. Please look for Italian wine to be integrated into many of the events on the schedule, including the Walk-Around Grand Tastings, SMOKED!, some of the seminars and dinners, and more.
Here's what you can expect in February:
Please note that tickets to the Walk-Around Grand Tastings are $10 less, if you buy them on this website rather than at the door. Tickets are available for sale on this website until 3 hours before the event, unless sold out. Discounted Designated Driver tickets are available for the Walk-Around Grand Tasting sessions only.
NOTE: ALL TICKETS TO THE VIRGINIA WINE EXPO ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
The Virginia Wine Expo is proud to be a Virginia Green event, which requires passing strict guidelines that minimize our impact on the environment.
