Tasting Wines with George


Vineyards from across Virginia offered samples during the Spring Wine Festival.


The lawn at Mount Vernon is packed Friday, May 15, with people enjoying the Spring Wine Festival.

Visitors enjoyed cool spring evenings and samples from 16 Virginia wineries this past weekend at Mount Vernon’s Wine Festival & Sunset Tour, celebrating the history of wine in Virginia and special evening tours of the Mansion and cellar, appearances by "George and Martha Washington," and live music on the east lawn of George Washington's Mount Vernon home overlooking the scenic Potomac River.
