5 Ways To Celebrate The Season At Virginia Wineries


1. Nibble on seasonal goodies

Get into the holiday spirit by satisfying your sweet tooth. Wineries are offering cookie decorating or even an entire weekend dedicated to s’mores. Have more of a savory tooth? Try a traditional winemaker dinner instead.

2. Find the perfect gift

It’s important to support local, small businesses, so drink local and shop local at the same time. Find dealsunique gifts, and even see Santa while enjoying a glass of Virginia Wine.

3. Get crafty

It’s a busy time of year and it’s important to take a deep breath and make something for yourself. A wreath-making class or painting class with wine in hand can help you relax during this holiday season.

4. Holiday open houses

Not up for planning your own holiday get-together? Gather a group of friends and head to a winery to enjoy a cozy day together. Several wineries are hosting open houses to celebrate the season with Virginia Wine lovers.

Clink your #vawine-filled glasses together and celebrate the end of the year with music, a murder-mystery dinner or a masked ball. Cheers, and we look forward to seeing you in 2019!
