Join Mount Vernon for its most popular event of the year! Sample wines from Virginia's finest wineries while enjoying spectacular views at the estate. Celebrate the history of wine in Virginia with exclusive evening tours of the mansion and cellar and appearances by George and Martha Washington. Bring a blanket, relax on the east lawn overlooking the scenic Potomac River and sample wines made in Virginia. During tours of the mansion, visit the cellar where Washington stored his wine and learn about the successes and failures of our Founding Father’s endeavors with wine. All proceeds benefit the ongoing preservation and restoration of Mount Vernon and its educational programs. The event takes place rain or shine and all sales are final.
