    Montpelier Wine Festival

    Sample wines and ciders from Virginia wineries at the 27th Annual Montpelier Wine Festival on the grounds of James Madison's Montpelier, located along Route 20 just south of the Town of Orange.

    The Montpelier Wine Festival is a great place to bring the whole family.  Spend the day tasting wine and enjoying distinctive arts and crafts, enjoying live music, specialty food vendors, participate in the Most Marvelous Hat contest and challenge your friends to a corn hole game!  Children will enjoy kite making classes,  kite flying demonstrations, petting zoo and barrel train rides.  Mansion tours are available and begin at the Visitor's Center. New for 2017, discover the new vendor area to highlight the talents of local artists.  The Artist's Corner is sponsored this year by Orange Pharmacy and the Orange County Chamber of Commerce.
