16 May Mount Vernon’s Spring Wine Festival & Sunset Tour
Mount Vernon’s Spring Wine Festival & Sunset Tour celebrates the history of wine in Virginia with exclusive evening tours of the Mansion and cellar, appearances by “George and Martha Washington,” and live jazz on the east lawn overlooking the scenic Potomac River. Visitors brought a blanket and relaxed on the east lawn as they sample wines from 20 Virginia wineries.
During tours of the Mansion, interpreters will discuss Washington’s attempts at creating a vineyard and highlight various wine-related items inside the Mansion, including the basement’s brick vaults where Washington stored his wine.
All proceeds benefits the ongoing preservation and restoration of Mount Vernon and its educational programs.
