Welcome to the VWE

The press is welcome to cover the 10th Anniversary Virginia Wine Expo presented by Kroger (VWE)! This event is Virginia’s premier wine event, primarily featuring Virginia wine and the wines from our 2017 International Guest Region of Spain/Portugal and National Guest Region, Sonoma County, California.   

If you have media inquiries, please contact Alex Papajohn at 804.349.6909 or apapajohn@VariantEvents.com.

If you want to request a press pass, then please use the form below. 

Please note that a press pass includes free admission to the event, but does not permit the consumption of alcohol. Thus, as a member of the press, you will be permitted to enter and report on the event at no cost. However, if you want to consume wine, then you must purchase a drinking ticket on this Web site or at the door, if tickets are still available. This policy is consistent with Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control laws, which require a consumer to pay for the consumption of alcohol.

If your press registration is accepted, we will inform you via email.
