Mount Vernon’s Spring Wine Festival & Sunset Tour celebrates the history of wine in Virginia with candlelit tours of the Mansion, including the rarely-open basement where Washington stored his wine, and live music on the east lawn overlooking the scenic Potomac River. Guests can sample wines from 16 Virginia wineries, learn about the successes and failures of our Founding Father’s wine endeavors, and meet “George and Martha Washington” on the Mansion's piazza.

Friday night tickets are $40 per person; Saturday night $46 per person; Sunday night $36 per person; fruit and cheese boxes are $26 each.
