Welcome to the Wine Excursion™

Special Privileges for Highly Qualified Members of the Trade

The Richmond International Wine Excursion (RIWE) at Historic Tredegar welcomes highly qualified members of the trade. You’ll have the opportunity to sample hundreds of international and regional wines from over 150 wineries around the world. Since tickets to the three Lexus of Richmond Walk-Around Grand Tastings will be restricted to avoid overcrowding, each one of these sessions will have a limited number of tickets available to the trade. Decisions regarding admission will be made by the organizers of the RIWE based on the availability of tickets and the qualifications of the trade registrant.

You must be directly involved in the purchase, distribution, marketing, or sale of wine for an establishment on a full-time basis to qualify as a member of the trade. In addition, all of the required fields in the trade registration form must be filled out. If a required field is left blank or incorrectly filled out, your registration will not be accepted. NO EXCEPTIONS!

The Trade Registration form will ask you which of the three Lexus of Richmond Walk-Around Grand Tasting sessions you would like to attend. It will also ask you for your second choice as well.

If your registration is accepted, then you will be informed as to which session you will be permitted to enter. The trade is permitted to enter an hour earlier than General Admission ticket holders (First-Class entry). The entry times for the trade for the three Lexus of Richmond Walk-Around Grand Tastings are as follows:
