VA Wine ExpoNever thought I’d be saying this but it looks like I’ll be attending the Virginia Wine Expo for the first time this year.  In their great wisdom, the Expo has added Burger Blast to their schedule Friday February 22nd from 5 – 10pm.  Burger Blast will feature artisan burgers with samplings of Virginia beer and wine.

  • Samples of craft beer from Virginia and the U.S.
  • Samples of Virginia wine
  • Live music
  • Riedel crystal wine glass (used for wine & beer)
