Yorktown's Wine Festival to Feature Wine Tastings, Live Music, Food Trucks, and More than 30 Vendors 

September 20, 2019
 
     Tickets are on sale for the Yorktown Wine Festival - The Best of Virginia and Beyond!  This annual event is scheduled for Saturday, October 5, from 12 to 6 p.m., and is presented by Village Events Ltd.  Proceeds benefit the York Foundation for Public Education as well as the Victory YMCA.
     The festival showcases more than a dozen Virginia wineries, cideries, and internationally featured wines for unlimited tastings! This expanded sampling is an effort to show that Yorktown shares more than just history with its sister cities Zweibrücken and Port-Vendres. In a nod to both countries, ticket holders will be able to sample Rieslings from Germany and indulge in sparkling wine from France.
