This weekend, October 28th and 29th, the Richmond International Wine Excursion kicks off a world-class culinary adventure combining both international and locally-sourced wine with cuisine featuring a global flair.
This first annual event will take place at Historic Tredegar, where large, temperature-controlled tents will be in place. Tredegar, of course, is on the banks of the James River and the weather forecast is projecting a beautiful, crisp autumn day. More than 250 wines representing 12 countries and 100 of the best wineries will be poured by representatives of the wineries who will share their expertise and knowledge. Each attendee will receive a beautiful Riedel crystal wine glass as a souvenir. There’s even a Locavore Luncheon – a feast of sumptuous, locally-sourced cuisine paired with selected wines.
Whether you take in one event or more, various ticket packages are available. Tickets. For a full schedule of the events and to plan your day, check Schedule. The event opens at 6 PM on Friday, closes at 10 PM, and re-opens on Saturday at noon and runs until 10 PM. What can be better than wine, food, and a beautiful fall day along the James River?
