Food and Wine Festival

2009 July 9
by Chuck Shotton

The first annual “DC’s Wine Country – Food and Wine Festival” is this weekend, July 10-12, at historic Whitehall Manor in Bluemont. This promises to be quite a different event from the usual wine or beer event where the visitors race from tent to tent clutching an empty glass. This event will focus on 20 of the 24 wineries in Loudoun Co., each pouring their four best vintages. But the real difference is the food that will accompany the wines. A catered buffet will be available in the manor house for guests and judging from the menu, it should make for a nice evening of food and wine.

The event begins at 6 PM on Friday and Saturday, and 5 PM on Sunday. See the map below for details on the location.

An additional note, the event is looking for volunteers to help each evening. Volunteers get admission to the event and dinner in return for helping with parking and logistics. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Patrick at 703-973-9600.
