SlowFoodVastWine™ is a premier culinary event in the heart of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Proceeds support John XXIII Montessori Children's Center in Front Royal, Virginia.

UPDATE: Our VIP Reception is SOLD OUT

Last year's SlowFoodVastWine™ was a great success! With your help, we raised over $70,000! This year, in 2018, our goal is to raise $100,000 to benefit the children at John XXIII Montessori Center.

Each year our fun celebration of fabulous locavore food and wine is a community tradition. This year, we’re working to extend it farther than ever before by sharing Shenandoah Valley flavor and culture — and the brilliance of Catholic Montessori education — with folks from the whole Northern Virginia region and beyond. We’ll once again be at Blue Valley Vineyard & Winery. It’s a terrific location, one that gives SlowFoodVastWine™ a chance to tell its own story.

We'd love for you to join us!
