Join Jay Youmans MW for a curated tasting experience featuring ten distinctive wines that showcase Virginia’s diverse grape varieties and unique vineyard terroirs. Participants will explore the history, climate, and soil types of Virginia’s wine regions, learning how these factors influence the flavors and characteristics of the wines. Perfect for wine enthusiasts of all levels, this class provides an in-depth understanding of Virginia’s burgeoning wine industry through the lens of its most representative wines.

A long-time advocate for Virgnia Wines, Jay Youmans was the director of the Virgina Governor’s Cup Wine competition from 2011 – 2023, and increased the visibility of Virginia’s wines on the international stage by leading an in-depth masterclass on Virginia wines at VinExpo Paris earlier this year.

This tasting is in person only (no virtual) and seating is limited so register soon.
