Virginia is for Lovers

Eat and Drink What You Love in Virginia

Autumn is one of the most spectacular times of year to visit Virginia. Local farms transform into family playgrounds with harvest festivals, corn mazes, and hayrides through pumpkin patches. Winemakers celebrate the harvest at more than 300 wineries, and Virginia’s scenic roadways show off the state’s bursting fall folliage.

This fall, Virginia is for Lovers is celebrating its rich culinary offerings – as it’s the most wonderful time of year to do so. After all, fall is the season for oysters, wine, cider, apples, and everything pumpkin.

So put on your coziest sweater, pull on some boots, and join us for the most. Delicious. Fall. Ever.

EAT.

The food served across the state by acclaimed chefs in charming local eateries is rooted in more than just good taste; it provides a story of the land you’re standing on.

Virginia offers culinary delights for every palate – from vine-ripened produce picked fresh from the rich fields of the Shenandoah Valley to the sustainably farmed Chesapeake Bay oysters. So dig in to the incredible flavors that Virginia has to offer and experience our world-class food scene.

DRINK.

Just like our food, Virginia-crafted beverages have a deep history dating back to our country’s first settlers. Our wine, brews, ciders, and spirits are more than 400 years in the making.

Taste internationally-acclaimed vintages with backdrops ranging from rural mountain estates to the coastal plains of the Eastern Shore. Experience our many craft beer towns that come alive with live music and local food trucks. Sip seasonal ciders and crafted cocktails at our local orchards and distilleries all across the state. So raise a glass and toast to Virginia, home of some very fine drinks!

LOVE.

Food is meant to be shared with the ones you love, from family meals made from scratch during the holidays to luxury dinners at the finest Virginia restaurants. In addition to extraordinary selections of things to eat and drink, the Commonwealth has a wealth of foodie events, tours, and festivals that make for unforgettable memories with your loved ones. Add an extra helping of LOVE to your plate this fall with an authentic Virginia food experience.
