Mount Vernon recently hosted its annual Fall Wine & Festival Sunset Tour with safety measures in place due to the pandemic. This included the closure of The Mansion, which is typically available for tours during this event each year.
Guests arrived with blankets and had the opportunity to celebrate the history of wine in Virginia by sampling wines from 16 Virginia wineries on the east lawn, overlooking the Potomac. Fruit and cheese boxes were available for advance purchase and the Mount Vernon food truck provided concessions.
Mount Vernon's VP of of Media & Communications, Matt Briney, said, “It was great to be able to safely continue this Mount Vernon tradition. We look forward to seeing everyone for the Spring Wine Festival in May 2021!”
