October 27 Noon-6 p.m.—Fall WineFest

Due to overwhelming demand from our faithful WineFest fans, the WINEFEST organizing committee has decided to organize a one day Fall WineFest on October 27th, 2018. This Wine “Cellar”bration is an opportunity to stock your wine cellar before the holiday season!

Tickets available HERE!

Discover new wines and revisit those hard to find favorites from last year.

One Amazing Venue
This Georgian style house built in 1807 by Col. Joseph Kemp, a Revolutionary soldier and hero of the War of 1812, has become the “can’t miss” venue of WineFest at St Michaels. Chef Adam Sanders, a fixture at the Kemp house, will be on hand with delicious gourmet food.

Fabulous Wines
The Kemp house will feature 40-60 carefully selected wines which have been chosen to offer something for everyone: sparkling, whites, rose’s, reds, and dessert wines. If you know Winefest and its 10-year history, you know these wines will have global appeal. The list will include both domestic and international varietals.

VIP Wines
We will offer both a regular ticket which provides tastings of 40-60 wines, as well as a VIP ticket which provides access to both the regular venue as well as the VIP tent. Those of you who have previously attended WineFest VIP events will not be disappointed by the wines that the WineFest team has picked out!
