For too long, the world of wine has been reserved for certain folks. That's so 20th century.
Join a group of easy-going experts, led by Patrick Evans-Hylton, at Norfolk Festevent's 28th Annual Town Point Virginia Wine Festival on Oct. 17 and 18 for fun -and informative - somm-inars.
Grab a glass and learn how to swirl to open up the bouquet, inhale the fragrance in the glass and take note of the subtle nuances, and sip topick up the myriad of flavors as they dance across your palate. All the while, ask questions and take notes in the provided field guide so you can learn to quaff with the best of them.
There are several somm-inars each day covering a variety of engaging topics that will make you fall in love with Virginia wine all over again.
