8th Annual Thomas Jefferson Wine Festival

  • This event has passed.

November 19, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Thomas Jefferson called wine “…a necessary of life with me.” This November, thousands of like-minded wine enthusiasts will gather at his secluded plantation to toast the “Father of Virginia Wine” in the eighth annual Thomas Jefferson Wine Festival.

The festival will feature Virginia wineries along with artisans, local food purveyors and musical entertainment. It is held inside large, heated tents, rain or shine. Tasting tickets include a complimentary wine glass. Because this is an adult event, there are no children’s activities available. We ask that attendees refrain from bringing outside food or drink. With the exception of service dogs, pets are prohibited. Hotel packages will be available.

VIP TENT
                This special tent will be set up in the center of Mr. Jefferson’s south lawn. VIP tickets include a seat at a table in the tent, samples of French wines and heavy hors d’oeuvres that can be paired with wine.

TICKETS
Regular Admission tickets are $25 in advance (highly recommended); $30 at the door; non-tasting tickets are $10 in advance and at the door. VIP tent are $125/individual and $225/couple.

Tickets will be available for purchase online or at the Poplar Forest Museum Shop starting September 1.
