Vendemmia Da Vinci is one of the premier Italian American Wine & Food festivals on the East Coast.  Each guest has the opportunity to sample great wines from every region of Italy, great Italian beers and restaurant specialties from over 25 area restaurants.  Guests also enjoy four hours of professional entertainment featuring opera, classic Italian and contemporary music.  Vendemmia Da Vinci will once again hold its annual Home Made Gravy contest, as well as one of the largest Home Made Wine competitions on the East Coast.  The competitions are open to the public.

Chairman of the Vendemmia Da Vinci Wine & Food Festival Ron Oronzio said, “Bellevue State Park offers our guests the opportunity to enjoy one of most highly rated Italian American Festivals in one of the most beautiful and natural settings in the state of Delaware.  The Bellevue State Park facility offers the opportunity to grow a premium Delaware Columbus Day weekend event to a truly regional event.”  Bellevue State park is located off the Marsh Road Exit of I95 minutes from the Delaware – Pennsylvania border with plenty of parking.

“This is a wonderful event and we are proud to host the festival at one of our most beautiful parks: Bellevue State Park,” said Director of Delaware State Parks Ray Bivens. “Bellevue Hall and its gardens provide the perfect backdrop for this prestigious event. It is my hope that this new ‘home’ provides new opportunities for the festival, as well as room to grow even larger in the future.”
