Virginia is for lovers, but way before, it was for wine. Dating back to Thomas Jefferson, Virginia has entertained a climate perfect for grapes. Today, Virginia is known as the “Napa Valley of the East.” The Virginian has started its own vineyard and looks forward to bottling the efforts soon. It’s a tribute to the land and something every member can be a part of.
We can thank Thomas Jefferson for first introducing winemaking to Virginia, as well as growing vines. Virginia has certainly embraced wine, and now you’ll find several of the United State’s most beloved wineries in Virginia. Interested in learning more?
