April 2024 | 12th Annual Tom Tom Festival
Eight Winemakers, Eight Stories, Eight Minutes With Each: A Virginia Wine Tasting Experience

April 17, 2024
Eastwood Farm and Winery

Enjoy an intimate wine tasting as you move in small groups around the room to visit each winemaker table. At each table, you will have the opportunity to share a glass of wine and discussion with the winemaker before moving to the next table.

There’s a lot happening in the Virginia wine scene. Wine Enthusiast magazine recently named the Monticello Wine Trail the Wine Region of the Year. The region is a hotbed for innovation and the home of many independent winemakers. We look forward to bringing some of these independent winemakers together in one room for an evening of wine tasting and conversation.

Last year, we hosted a panel discussion in conjunction with the Tom Tom Festival, entitled “The Many Faces of Virginia Wine.” Panelists shared their stories and discussed increasing opportunities in the Virginia Wine Industry and the importance of building our collective future in a diverse and inclusive way.

This is an exciting follow up to that event. This year, we look forward to a new format designed to increase opportunities for conversation, wine tasting, and community. Guests will have an opportunity to participate in small groups, spending time with each winemaker and seed stage entrepeneur to learn about some of the growing pathways to ownership, diversity and inclusion.
