Where is the festival located?
The Swine & Wine Festival takes place on our farm in Brookneal, Virginia- home to Sans Soucy Vineyards/Staunton River Brewing Co., amongst the vines in our natural amphitheater. It's a cool, laid back atmosphere, and a perfect venue for a true farm festival. No concrete pavement at this event!
What kind of bbq will be available? General admission guests have plenty of delicious options from various vendors to purchase bbq pork, chicken, bison, beef, and even seafood dishes this year, but we'll be judging for crowd favorite "Finest Swine Dish"! This year, we're excited to introduce food from Drug Store Grill, P-O-P BBQ, Gregory's Grill Catering, Melrose Bison Farm and more!
