Chesapeake Wine Festival

The Chesapeake Rotary Club hosted the 8th Annual Chesapeake Wine Festival.  Everyone enjoyed unlimited tastings from 23 premier Virginia wineries, along with live entertainment by 504 Supreme & Lewis and Kayce McGehee. Proceeds from this annual event benefit charities of the Chesapeake Rotary Club, such as the Chesapeake Care Free Clinic and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Virginia. Now that's something to toast!
