10th Annual Spring Town Point Virginia Wine Festival
MAY 7-8, 2016
Town Point Park, Norfolk Waterfront
Spend a spring weekend on the waterfront in Town Point Park, tasting wine from dozens of premier Virginia wineries. Feast on gourmet foods, shop from specialty merchants and enjoy live music on the Downtown Norfolk Waterfront.
All wines presented during the festival are available for purchase by the bottle or case throughout the day.
Join a group of easy-going experts for fun and informative Somm-inars At the Spring Wine Festival. There are several each day covering a variety of engaging topics. Learn how to swirl to open up the bouquet, inhale the fragrance in the glass and take note of the subtle nuances, and sip to pick up the myriad of flavors as they dance across your palate. There is no additional fee to attend the somm-inar sessions but the experience is limited to the first 45 people for each session.
