Wine & Brine

Harvest time is in full swing throughout 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 options to choose from 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 plenty of events celebrating the 2nd Annual Virginia’s Eastern Shore Wine & Brine month in November.
