If there’s one thing Richmond knows how to do best, it’s festivals! This weekend is the 8th annual Virginia Wine Expo. Instead of having all of the events crammed into one tired looking white room in the convention center, the Expo has been spread across a variety of locations all around town involving various restaurants, chefs and other businesses.
This Saturday and Sunday, February 21-22 from 12-6pm and 12-5:30pm, is the Grand Tasting at the Richmond Convention Center. Sip and sample wine from all over Virginia as well as this year’s guest region- South Africa. There will be specialty foods, such as cheese, chocolate, oils and vinegars, nuts, smoked meats and more to sample. Tickets are $42 in advance, $52 at the door, or $75 for a 2-day pass.
