The 2nd Annual Lost Colony Wine & Culinary Festival begins on Friday, September 29, 2018 with a Vintner’s Dinner and continues Saturday, September 29, with The Grand Tasting, on the beautiful and historic grounds of the Waterside Theatre on Roanoke Island, home to America’s longest running outdoor symphonic drama, The Lost Colony.
Not only is Roanoke Island the site of America’s first English colony and our country’s oldest mystery but also the birthplace of America’s first English child, Virginia Dare.
The only silent witness remaining to these events is the Mother Vine, America’s oldest cultivated grapevine. Dated to be more than 400 years old, its myths and history is interwoven with Virginia Dare and the story of American wine. Wine, whether Old World or New World will be celebrated on the site where the New World was first explored by Sir Walter Raleigh’s colonies.
The 1st Annual Lost Colony Wine & Culinary Festival Grand Tasting took place on the grounds of the famous outdoor drama, The Lost Colony. Attendees enjoyed over 100 wines from around the world, discovered local craft beers, sampled savory local fare and enjoyed live entertainment, surrounded by breathtaking views of the Roanoke and Pamlico Sounds.
There will be no better way to spend a fall day on the Outer Banks!
