Our friends at the Virginia Food and Wine Foundation have just announced the dates for the first annual DC's Wine Country - Food and Wine Festival. This festival will occur during the evenings of July 10-12, 2009 at the historic Whitehall Manor in Bluemont, Virginia and will highlight the fabulous wines being produced by twenty wineries in Loudoun County. Besides the $30 general admission, there are a few dining packages available. All proceeds will benefit the Virginia Food & Wine Foundation general scholarship fund which supports culinary arts and wine studies. Attendance is limited so we recommend ordering early.
