More Information

10th Annual Thomas Jefferson Wine Festival
Saturday, November 17 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Eat, drink, shop and explore a piece of American history when the Thomas Jefferson Wine Festival returns to Poplar Forest. The festival, which celebrates Jefferson’s legacy as the father of Virginia Wine, features tastings from over a dozen of Virginia’s finest wineries. Funds raised by the festival support the ongoing restoration and preservation of the Founding Father’s secluded Bedford County retreat.

Jefferson VIP Wine Festival passes—which include access to a private tent, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a private audience with Mr. Jefferson himself, a special tasting and more—and general admission tickets, which include tastings and a complimentary Poplar Forest wine glass, will be available for purchase online after September 1, 2018.

Sponsored in part by Bank of the James, The News & Advance and Progress Printing Plus.
