Virginians have always been rebels; we like to do things our own way. Make our own rules. So, it should serve as no surprise that we’ve made up a new celebration and deemed it tradition.

Enter the Harvest Party. October 19th is officially the day that Virginians are invited to revel in the bountiful harvest that Virginia has provided. The Harvest Party is a day to join together–be it in your home, an inspired restaurant, or at one of the winery hosted events below–the locally grown wine and food that make our region so vibrant.
