The United Bank Bloomin' Wine Fest begins at 3:00 pm on Friday, April 27th at the Old Town Mall in Winchester, VA.  Fifteen vineyards will be participating this year.  There will also be food vendors throughout the both days.

The downtown walking mall will become the storefront for 30 artisans and vendors providing their creations.  If you're in the market for some one of kind jewelry, bags or pottery, this is the place to be.  There will also be local artists showing and selling their works on the Mall. 

The gates open at 3:00 pm on Friday and closet at 10:00 pm.  Wine tasting ends at 9:30 pm, but there is good news.  You can take unopened wine home by the bottle or by the case all the way through the event. 

There are two wine gardens providing live entertainment throughout both days.  Tickets are available at the official festival store at 15 Weems Lane in Winchester, VA, or you can pay at the gate.  Advance day tickets are $15.00, or you can buy a two day advance ticket for $25.00.  You can also pay at the gate for $20.00 for the day or $30.00 for both days. 

This is the official launch of the 85th Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival.  Come and join us for a bloomin' good time.

They started the wine fest a couple years ago as a start of the Apple Blossom Festival.  It caught on and off we go.  We do have a couple later in the year.  Hey, we're just a straight drop down the coast.  Come on down.  8-)

I'm uncertain, Cal.  My wife is a pianist for the local Conservatory.  Some of students are doing a performance Friday night, and she has committed me.  8-)

Mike, I went to one of the wine festivals one year while living in Northern Virginia.  It was a great time and we did buy some bottles of wine to take home....also consumed a lot :)

Hi Mike, too bad Jody is on nights! The Apple Blossom Festival/the Wine Fest would have been great events to come back for a visit! I don't think we could squeeze it in before dinner...

Well, we'd always love to have you visit.  So, come on over whenever you can.  There is a nice event in the park over May 5-6.  It starts early.  There is a circus too.  The little ladies would love that.  

I think so, David.  A nice glass of wine at the end of a day or with a great dinner is just the ticket. 

Thanks, Conrad.  It gets crazy around here.  Have a great Friday.

Thanks, Scott.  It's always a big success.

Kris, they have non-alcohol passes as well.  The vendors and artisans make the day worthwhile.  There are also two stages of entertainment going throughout the event.
