Fall Wine Events
Crystal Palate takes a look at upcoming Hampton Roads wine events

Harvest is in full swing across Virginia. There’s nothing like the cool, crisp autumn air and beautiful fall foliage paired with great company and a delicious glass of wine.

There are plenty of events to choose from this fall throughout the region including some great wine classes to take your knowledge to the next level, a can’t miss charity auction event, wine festivals featuring Virginia vino and events celebrating Virginia’s Eastern Shore Wine & Brine month in November.

Let’s toast the new season in style by enjoying one of these great fall wine events, classes or festivals. Cheers!
