Top Chefs to Appear at 2016 Epicurience

This year’s Epicurience Virginia may be in a different location and a different time of year—Oct. 15 at One Loudoun in Ashburn—but there will be many familiar faces.

Top Chef and Top Chef Masters alum Bryan Voltaggio heads the line-up of talented chefs at the food and wine festival. Joining him will be Matchbox Executive Chef Jim Drost, Market Table Bistro Chef Jason Lage, Salamander Resort & Spa Chef Chris Edwards, and many more.

After being held at Morven Park, the wine and food festival moves to The Barn at One Loudoun in the community’s central park this year.

“We are thrilled to host Epicurience Virginia this year at One Loudoun,” Miller & Smith Vice President and One Loudoun Managing Director Bill May stated, adding the historic barn will be a perfect backdrop for the festival.

Event founder Visit Loudoun will again be the presenting sponsor. Sponsor Integrus Holdings and its subsidiaries Sterling Restaurant Supply and Fortessa Tableware will again provide Schott Zwiesel etched wine glasses for each attendee, and also host the popular Chef Demonstration Stage.

As a founding sponsor of Epicurience Virginia, Integrus Holdings President and CEO Scott Hamberger said his companies are proud to continue their support of the festival, and he predicted   One Loudoun would be a great location as the event continues to grow.

The festival runs from 1 to 7 p.m. General admission tickets are $75, which allows patrons to sample award-winning wines and local cuisine, as well as to watch the chefs cook up tasty creations, enjoy live entertainment and participate in sessions in the wine education tent. Their ticket also covers parking and the free keepsake wine glass.
