8th Annual Thomas Jefferson Wine Festival
Saturday, November 19 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Wine was a “necessary of life” for Mr. Jefferson. Join thousands of like-minded oenophiles at Mr. Jefferson’s secluded Bedford County plantation to celebrate his vision for Virginia wine and to taste wines from some of Virginia’s finest vineyards at the eighth annual Thomas Jefferson Wine Festival.
Enjoy music from local bands, graze on local fare, shop for handmade gifts in the artisan market and enjoy the wine tastings. The Thomas Jefferson Wine Festival is held inside large, heated tents on the south lawn, rain or shine. Because this is an adult event, there are no children’s activities scheduled. Outside food and drink are not allowed. With the exception of service dogs, pets are prohibited. Admission is $25 in advance, $30 at the door; designated driver and non-drinking tickets are $10 in advance and at the door. VIP tickets and amenities are $125 per person or $225 per couple; for details visit poplarforest.org/events. House tours will also be available at a reduced cost.
