“An amazing experience.”
"We've been attending the Purcellville Wine & Food Festival for three years now, and every year we have an amazing experience. We're always excited to sample tastings from the new wineries who are involved year after year. "
“I can’t wait until next summer!”
The 2017 Purcellville Wine & Food Festival was one of my favorite events of the entire summer. My friends and I got a VIP table and were extremely pleased with all of the benefits we received with this VIP package. I can't wait until next summer when the 2018 Wine & Food Festival takes place!"
