Rassawek Wine and Heritage Festival May 18 & 19

Listen for Perry and his IQ Test weekday afternoons at 4:20 for your chance to win tickets!

One of Virginia’s most unique family-friendly events, visitors will enjoy a blend of two exceptional festival experiences on one amazing property.

The Rassawek Vineyards on Route 6 in Goochland County, is home to both the Wine Festival and Heritage Show. Located in the heart of Virginia’s Piedmont, the vineyard overlooks the historic James River corridor. Enjoy a scenic drive along Route 6, less than an hour from Richmond or Charlottesville and experience a festival that has something for everyone.

The Heritage Show offers activities and demonstrations that are sure to please adventurers of any age. Take a ride on the steam train through the vineyard, listen to live acoustic music, check out the antique cars, explore a tree house unlike any other, enjoy fun activities for children, enter in the popular fishing derby, visit with the 4-H animals, sample local produce, baked goods and home-cooked food, watch artisans at work and learn about heritage traditions through a variety of cultural and agrarian demonstrations.

The Wine Festival features nine Virginia wineries, including Rassawek’s own Byrd Cellars. Sample some of the region’s best wine while strolling along one of the property’s many lakes or while relaxing on the porch of the historic Cherokee Cabin. Enjoy hand-crafted chocolate and gourmet food, the perfect complement to any wine experience. You won’t want to miss Virginia’s most unusual wine tasting room- an original greenhouse from James Madison’s Montpelier.
