The Virginia Wine Experience

Long recognized for outstanding culinary offerings, The Omni Homestead Resort is adding to its portfolio with the Virginia Wine Experience. Located near the resort’s grand Dining Room, the Virginia Wine Experience focuses solely on the wines of the Commonwealth, showcasing the history of winegrowing in Virginia from the founding of Jamestown in 1607 through today.

Here, guests can select from distinct wine flights or wines by the glass at the Tasting Parlor, with bottles available for purchase. Each month, a prominent Virginia winery will be profiled, and guests will have the opportunity to meet with the winery owner/vintner, attend a seminar or enjoy an exclusive, private dinner which will be complemented with wines from the featured winery.

The Virginia Wine Experience will be a permanent fixture at the resort with ongoing special events, educational seminars, and tastings of some of Virginia’s most limited and unique wines. Well-known wine industry executive Fred Reno, CEO & president of Thomas Jefferson Wine Company, has been retained as the consulting project manager to curate this new initiative and connect the resort with Virginia’s top wineries.
