South Boston News / April 11, 2018
First held 12 years ago, the Lake Country Wine Festival has grown to become one of southern Virginia’s most popular springtime events, and this year’s Wine Fest is shaping up to be one of the best yet.

The weather forecast is looking good for the Saturday, event: partly sunny and dry with temperatures in the upper 70s. Running from noon-5 p.m., the Wine Festival promises a great mix of regional wines, selection of craft beers, and good times on the Business 58 bridge over Buggs Island Lake in Clarksville.

For tickets, go online at (until 4 p.m. Friday), or visit the Clarksville Lake Country Chamber of Commerce office on Second Street, Clarksville, or pick up tickets at these local businesses: Galleria on the Lake, Virginia Avenue Mall, Century 21 on the Lake and Cooper’s Landing Inn & Traveler’s Tavern. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the gate, and include a souvenir wine glass. For non-taster/DD tickets, the advance price is $12, $15 at the gate. The event is for those 21 years and over only; it is a rain/shine event.
