Chesapeake VA Wine Festival
Chesapeake Wine Festival

Virginia's wine industry dates backs nearly four centuries when early settlers started with nothing but a few English grapevines and the dream to one day rival the great wines of Burgundy and Bordeaux. Today, nearly 200 wineries flourish in the Commonwealth, and Virginia's vino is winning international and national recognition for its elegant qualities. Every October, wine enthusiasts gather in Chesapeake City Park to celebrate Virginia's wine month at the Chesapeake Wine Festival. Wine lovers will not want to miss this half-day event when area vintners offer tastings of their award-winning wines.
This festival also includes musical entertainment and sweet and savory eats from area restaurants. Whether you prefer Chardonnay or Cabernet, don't leave until you've sampled some of the Commonwealth's finest: Virginia Viognier and Virginia Cabernet Franc.
The Chesapeake Rotary Club hosts this annual event with proceeds benefiting Rotary Community Charities such as the Chesapeake Care Free Clinic, the Boys & Girls Club of Southeastern Virginia and many more. We'll toast to that!
