Virginia Wine & Dine Month, with its Love by the Glass promotion, is a celebration of Virginia wines at more than 500 participating restaurants and wine shops across Virginia making March the perfect month to explore Virginia wine.
Visit Virginia Wine’s Wine & DineÂ site to find special events, restaurant offerings and retail promotions. Here’s a sample …
- Restaurants: The Roosevelt in Richmond’s Church Hill neighborhood features 17 state wineries on its list. Emilio’s in Staunton is featuring 13 Virginia wines by the glass this month. 2100 Prime in DC has 5 wines by the glass on offer (unfortunately they are the only DC restaurant participating).
- Events: Barrel Tastings at Paradise Springs WineryÂ in Clifton throughout the month
- Hotels: Even hotels are getting involved. Keswick Hall outside of Charlottesville, a perfect jumping off point for exploring Virginia’s Monticello Wine Trail, has a Love by the Glass package, as does The Jefferson Hotel in Richmond.
Virginia Wine’s website is a great place to find your closest of Virginia’s 200+ wineries to visit this month.Â And if your local restaurant or retailer isn’t carrying Virginia wine, March would be a great month to suggest they get in on the fun.
Cheers to Virginia wine!
