The Smith Mountain Lake Wine Festival has been established since 1989. It all started with an idea from a local convenient store owner in Burnt Chimney and a insurance agent who is a true wino. Little did they know that 31 years later this has become one of the most popular events that Smith Mountain Lake has offered to this area. In 1992 Smith Mountains Lakes Chamber took over the annual festival, moving it to bigger locations for a more spacious and picturesque environment. Just recently in 2016 the event has found its new home at Crazy Horse Marina in hope to provide more grounds to its locals and tourists that come from far and wide.
