About Walk-Around Grand Tasting: General Saturday Evening
If you attend only one of the Virginia Wine Expo's 28 events, make it the Walk-Around Grand Tasting - the heart of the Expo, perfect for both passionate wine enthusiasts and novice drinkers who enjoy tasting and learning about fine wine, spirits and food. Virginia's wine world gathers at this marquee celebration held at beautiful and historic Main Street Station, where you can spend an entire evening strolling from table to table tasting hundreds of wines from Virginia, 'Regions of Emphasis' Italy and Oregon and other regions, Virginia spirits, ciders and mead, and specialty foods. We're devoted to properly educating you about the drinks you taste, which is why we insist that every beverage is poured by knowledgeable representatives - whether they be winemakers, distributor representatives, proprietors, or experienced volunteers - capable of explaining about the drinks they are serving you. While the Expo features wines from many regions of the world, Virginia wine is always emphasized along with two guest regions, which change each year. In 2024, the two guest regions will be Italy and Oregon. Additionally, wines from other highly regarded wine regions will be available to taste. Additionally, we will offer an enhanced presentation of natural and biodynamic wines from Austria, California, France, Oregon and other regions of the world. The Walk-Around Grand Tasting has seating and many cocktail tables. Also, there is a wine check service that will hold your wines and other purchases until you are ready to exit the event.
