The 2020 Virginia Wine Expo presented by Publix is a multi-day, immersive and educational craft beverage and culinary experience featuring more than 30 carefully curated events. For six fun-filled days, you'll taste an exceptional variety of brilliant wines, spirits, ciders and high-end craft beers (at the new Ultimate Brew Fest) with Virginia's vintners, distillers, cider-makers and craft brewers, including highly sought-after top-scoring bottlings.
You'll also experience Richmond's vibrant and flourishing culinary scene, savoring delicious cuisine from some of the region's hottest chefs and pitmasters at our signature dinners, lunches, brunches and larger culinary events like SMOKED! and Bounty of Virginia Brunch, both presented by Performance Foodservice.
Most of the signature events will be held at historic Main Street Station, one of Richmond, Virginia's historic crown jewels and an absolutely stunning venue for the Expo's signature experiences.
At the heart of the Expo are the Walk-Around Grand Tastings, where you'll taste hundreds of the finest Virginia wines, spirits and ciders, as well as selections from 2020 International Guest Region Bordeaux and Loire Valley, France and 2020 National Guest Region Washington State. All Virginia wines and most wines from our Guest Regions are sourced from family-owned enterprises with a specific vision for quality wines focused on terroir. In addition, the Grand Tastings will feature artisan specialty food and products.
Most events on the schedule integrate our Guest Region wines to varying degrees. That integration along with the prevalence of Virginia wine and an emphasis on education are the most common themes of this 13th annual event.
