This week’s Buzz Bites begins with an inaugural inclusive wine festival on the lawn of the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center this weekend.
Two Up Wine DownTwo Up Wine Down will put wine professionals of color in the spotlight from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday at the Jefferson Center.
Members of the Oenoverse Club and the Veraison Project will be there. Your hosts include Titus Green, Matt Harmon, Tasha Durrett, Reggie Leonard, Lance Lemon, Chauncey Jenkins, Jason Becton, Zohna Jones and PK Ross.
Oenoverse is a movement using conversation and community to increase equity, ownership, inclusion and diversity within Virginia’s wine industry.
Look for Just Be Picnic and foods from Royalty Eats and Vegan Comforts. DJ Double U will provide the music.
Everyone is welcome at the rain-or-shine event, but you’ll need to be 21 or older to drink. Tastings tickets are $25 at the gate and come with a complimentary souvenir wine glass. Wines will be available to enjoy by the bottle and the glass — and to take home.
