The weather is starting to warm up and spring is in the air so take advantage of the wine festival and sunset tour to enjoy a warm spring evening outdoors. The best part about this event is that you get to hang out with George and Martha Washington at their Mount Vernon Estate while sipping on wine. There will be 16 Virginia wineries to sample wines from. In addition you will get a chance to tour the Mansion with exclusive look at George Washington’s basement where he stored his wine and live Jazz on the lawn overlooking the Potomac River!

Belvoir in our comfortable guest rooms. We also offer complimentary hot breakfast, Wi-Fi, 24-hour fitness center, and 24-hour business center.
