A Taste of the Virginia Wine Experience.

Every glass of Virginia wine, from Petit Verdot to Viognier, tells a unique story, but the oldest story regarding Virginia’s rich wine history has remained relatively obscure to most visitors. You may have heard about Thomas Jefferson’s dream of Virginia one day becoming a premiere wine destination or the rebirth of the wine industry in the 1960s, but there is so much more to learn about Wine Country here in the Commonwealth. So pull up a chair, pour yourself a glass, and discover the complete history of Virginia: The Birthplace of American Wines before planning a trip to some of our 280+ wineries.

Please designate a driver. Enjoy Virginia wine responsibly.
