This weekend I spent some time at the Virginia Wine Expo here in good ol’ Richmond, Virginia!
Over 40 wineries set up shop in the Richmond Convention Center while we (and thousands of fellow thirsty wine lovers) sipped and sampled our way through the venue.
I was expecting to be sardined in the Convention Center, but I was pleasantly surprised, as we never had to wait more than a few minutes for a tasting. In fact, tastings were so readily available, that things got a little “silly” pretty quickly.
Cory and Jamie were more adventurous than I, as I stuck to tasting mostly whites, but I was convinced by several vendors to try “training wheels reds” and I was never disappointed!
I absolutely fell in love with one vendor, though. To start off, the Bluestone Vineyard booth was staffed by the friendliest women. At one point, we went back for seconds, and they remembered us!
Friendliness aside, their Estate Grown Moscato is hands down the best Moscato I’ve ever tasted. It’s peach and honey flavor reminded me of summertime, and I instantly fell in love. Jamie did, too.
It was so great seeing so many friends drinking wine in one place! This was my first year at the event, but it certainly won’t be my last!
Let’s chat – When it comes to wine, are you a red or white kinda person?
