Vermont Wine Festivals
Want to get out and taste great wines in the great
state of Vermont? Then look for a a Vermont Wine Festival! These wine
events are a perfect way to fill a sunny Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Local Vermont wineries set up booths and dispense their special wines
for you to taste and buy. It's a great way to sample a wide variety
of wines in one fun-filled place. Vermont has several wonderful wine
and food festivals scheduled every year for locals and visitors
to enjoy. At most festivals you can expect to pay a nominal entrance
fee that then allows you to sample all the wines offered at the
event. Others sell tasting tickets that you can use at your tasting
discretion. Located in and around cities like Burlington, St. Albans, Montpelier
and Lyndonville, there are wine festivals that bring you the best samplings
of VT wines. Many specialize in fine VT wines as well as national
and international wines. At every booth you can expect to find helpful
and friendly wine experts eager to answer your questions.
At festivals like Stowe Wine and Food Classic in
June, Food & Wine in the Mountains in Jeffersonville in October,
or Vermont Life Wine and Harvest Festival in Wilmington in September,
you may find wines from Boyden Valley Winery, North River Winery
At Stowe, Fresh Tracks Farm Vineyard & Winery, and many others
at Vermont wine festivals. In addition to wine, these events can
include excellent food to sample, prepared by local restaurants
and chefs. And often you can expect music too. After all, nothing
pairs better with wine than a little Jazz, or Blue Grass music.
Local musicians are out playing their best music to accompany the
wine tasting. Whether you're visiting Rutland, Bennington, Brattleboro
and White River Junction you can find a local wine, food and music
festival that will perfect your VT vacation. The most popular time
of year for these festivals are the Fall and Summer months, but
they are also scheduled during holiday months as well. Imagine sipping
some great wines while watching the annual Christmas Tree lighting
ceremony! So although, you may not have time to visit all of Vermont's
great wineries, you can taste their wines at these great events.
So get out and enjoy! As always, Wine Bar Wineries is here to help
you find exciting wine, food and music festivals near you.
