Virginia is for (Wine) Lovers!

January 25th, 2011

The Virginia Wine Expo, a three day wine lover’s paradise will begin February 25 and continue through the 27 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center.  We here at the Mansion always look forward to it- after all, we love discovering new wines for our guests!

The Virginia Wine Expo is in its third year and is the mid-Atlantic’s premier wine and food event. The Expo features seminars, walk-around grand tasting, book signings, Virginia reserve wines, gourmet food, and acclaimed chefs. The Expo will kick off on Friday with SunTrust presenting the Virginia Governor’s Cup Grand Tasting. During the Grand Tasting you will be able to taste and purchase over three hundred and fifty Virginia wines, this includes reserve wines that are only available on this day. Heavy hors d’oeuvres and signature dishes from the top regional restaurants will also be served.

Saturday and Sunday will consist of seminars and tastings lead by top connoisseurs of individual wineries. Topics include Virginia wines paired with: chocolate, sushi, cheese, Indian Cuisine, desserts, and even burgers. Who knew that there is a perfect wine to compliment your burger? During the tastings, sixty plus wineries will have their finest wines for your sampling and purchasing.

We hope that you will come out and enjoy all the wonderful wines that Virginia has to offer.
