In addition to the regular tasting that go on around Richmond every week, this February two of the larger wine events in the state happen.
First up is the Washington DC Wine Expo, February 14th and 15th from 2:00 – 6:00pm each day at the Ronald Regan Building and International Trade Center. Sample over 800 wines with one admission price. The wines presented are from across the globe and not from one region – over 200 wineries from around the world including Argentina, Germany, Greece, Spain, Italy, France, New Zealand and the United States.
I attended last year and hope to attend Saturday this year as well. It was a great event, but try to get there early as it gets quite crowded.
Tickets are $85 per day.
At the end of the month right here in Richmond at the Convention Center will be the Virginia Wine Expo. Running from Friday February 27th – Sunday March 1st, the event will feature over 300 wines from 50+ Virginia Wineries. I didn’t get a chance to attend last year, but hope to make it this year on Sunday.

Tickets range in price from $35 – $75 as well as many packages that encompass a lot of the weekends events.
