The 8 Best Spots for Paint & Wine in Virginia!

Nothing is more relaxing than sitting back with a glass of wine and letting your creativity run wild. Wine and paint nights, or mobile paint parties, are great distractions from everyday tedium. If you want to paint your own personal masterpiece, or just want to socialize in a fun and unique way, then check out one of the great paint and wine spots below!  

1. Heather Donis Mobile Paint Parties, Hampton Roads, VA

One of the great aspects of wine and paint parties is their versatility. So long as you have an easel, paint, and a few bottles of wine, you’re moments away from a party. Heather Donis brings the party to you. Donis, a professional artist, will travel throughout the seven cities (Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Newport News, Williamsburg, Portsmouth, and Hampton) to your celebration. She brings the paints, palettes, brushes, table coverings, and you pick the venue. Drink, paint, and be merry as she instructs you on the finer points of drunken artistry. 

2. MountainRose Vineyards, Wise, VA

MountainRose Vineyards is a working vineyard on a reclaimed surface mine in the Appalachian Mountains that hosts regular “Sip N Paint” nights. For just $30, the vineyard staff provides art supplies, light refreshments and a glass of MountainRose wine. Enjoy the beautiful view of the mountains while you paint. 

3. Monet Gogh Sip and Spa, Alexandria, VA

Monet Gogh Sip and Spa is designed for total relaxation. Enjoy the on-site spa before your painting session. Each session is approximately two hours long, and no experience is needed. Wine, soft drinks, and water are served. Sign up for a daily class or book a private session for adults or children. Check their website for regularly updated themed events.

4. Wine and Design, Multiple locations

Wine and Design is one of the bigger franchises centered on sipping and paintbrush dipping. With 10 locations throughout Virginia, including Alexandria, Charlottesville, Christiansburg, Culpeper, Fredericksburg, Newport News, Chesterfield, Stafford, Williamsburg, and Richmond, it’s a good option anywhere in the state. While any franchise might lack the charm of a mom-and-pop establishment, you know you’ll get the utmost professionalism from a Wine and Design and a remarkably consistent experience. Tons of different classes and customizations are available.

5. Pinot’s Palette, Norfolk, Herndon, Vienna, VA

Pinot Palette is a fast-growing paint and sip franchise with three locations in Virginia. One of its differentiating aspects is its “Painting it Forward” initiative. Pinot’s Palette partners with local groups and national organizations to host fundraisers and generally help whatever community they’re apart of, which makes each location a more integral part of the community. The atmosphere is somewhat upscale, but the mood is usually laid back and open to everyone.

6. 3 Little Black Birds, Chesapeake, VA

3 Little Black Birds Artisan Boutique in Chesapeake, Virginia, is a vintage antique shop, but hosts regular special events including their popular Sip and Start Surfboard Painting night. Guests must preregister online, but for only $25, guests will share in refreshments and paint their very own surfboard. The event is BYOB, but perfectly themed for the coastal area and a fun take on the sip and paint trend.

7. Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, VA

The Chrysler Museum of Art and Glass Studio hosts regular “Make-and-Take” nights, in which patrons can enjoy live music and take in the collections while sipping a glass of wine and painting their own glass to take home.  The events are usually standing-room-only, so make sure to get a ticket ahead of time. Check the website for an updated event calendar, these events are usually held on the third Thursday of the month. 

8. Sip and Spatter, Forest, VA

Sip and Spatter in Forest, Virginia, is a studio that offers group painting lessons and classes. Drinks are included in the cost of a class, and students are invited to bring their own food. New painters are most welcome. Each night has a “featured painting” to help newbies find inspiration. One night may be a landscape, for example, while another might be an animal. You don’t have to adhere to the featured painting of the night, but it’s an easy way in to your artsy side.
