    BREAKING NEWS: UPDATE: Sheriff: Suspect in Erica Smith murder committed suicide

    DuPree to headline Epicurience

    Nathalie Dupree, one of the nation's most celebrated regional chefs, will headline this year's Epicurience Wine and Culinary Festival in Leesburg. The three-day food and wine festival will be held at Morven Park over Labor Day weekend.

    Epicurience highlights the region’s culinary offerings. Attendees taste the finest in Virginia wines, meet top tastemakers and master winemakers, and sample cuisine prepared by celebrated chefs from around the country.

    The signature event is the Grand Tasting, held on the green rolling grounds of 225-year-old Morven Park Estate.

    There are demonstrations, book signings, educational seminars, as well as exclusive events including dinners at wineries, farms or historic homes.

    Planners are hoping for about 3,500 people at this year's event.

    Dupree is a James Beard Award winner and one of the founders of the Charleston Food and Wine Festival.

    The announcement was made by Visit Loudoun President Beth Erickson at the 18th Visit Loudoun Tourism Awards on May 7.

    Loudoun County is attempting to capitalize on current trends in travel “experiences.”

    Visit Loudoun is one effort, focusing on upscale food-and-wine festivals. Forty-three wineries are located in the county.
