Enjoy live blues and spectacular views of the Potomac River while sampling wine from 16 Virginia wineries. Visitors learn about the successes and failures of our Founding Father’s wine endeavors, enjoy live blues music, and meet “George and Martha Washington” on the Mansion's piazza.  Guests experience an evening tour of the Washingtons’ home and are invited to visit the basement where he stored his wine. 

Here are some helpful hints to make your evening more enjoyable:

  • Remember to bring a lawn chair or blanket - this is a casual relaxing evening on the lawn 
  • This event is held rain or shine so come prepared 
  • Concessions by the Mount Vernon Inn are available in the tasting tent (Cash and Credit Accepted). 
  • Remember to bring a valid photo ID for entry.
