Harvest Party- Celebrate Virginia’s Bounty

As autumn falls upon the Commonwealth, it is a breathtaking time to step foot in Virginia’s wine country. With harvest coming to a close, foliage bursts with vibrant hues and a chill enlivens the region. This season beckons for celebration, and so, October marks the start of Virginia Wine Month — a tradition that began in 1988. Today, we celebrate with Virginia’s home-grown holiday, Harvest Party.

Harvest Party is a day for the Commonwealth to come together to toast the richness of our region. Where people in the city, the country and on the shore gather in restaurants, vineyards, private homes and open fields for a feast of Virginia-grown food and wine.

October 19th marks the official day to celebrate Harvest Party, but we welcome your celebration throughout the month as it suits you. There are endless ways to join in and very few rules: Virginia sourced food, gracious hospitality and bottles of Virginia Wine.
