April 14, 2014. The annual Blue Ridge Wine and Food Festival was held in Blowing Rock April 10-13, a weekend of beautiful weather and sunny skies. The four-day festival featured wines from all around, with plenty of excited wine lovers ready to taste them all. 

All throughout town, tents were set up for wine tastings, food tastings and filled with excited chatter. 

This year’s sponsors were the Town of Blowing Rock, Hendrick Northlake Luxury Auto Mall, The Blue Ridge Mountain Club, Blowing Rock Tourism Development Authority and the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce. 

This year’s festival featured more than a dozen individual wineries including Grandfather Vineyard and Winery, Hanover Park Vineyard, Childress Vineyard and Winery and many more.
