Welcome to Virginia Wine: History Uncorked

Discover more about the history and progress of wine in Virginia.

Virginia wine has a rich history from the colony’s origins through present day.  Since the first attempts to grow vines in Virginia, wine has made an impact in the economic history of the Commonwealth. Today, Virginia wines have grown in national and international prominence. Virginia now has over 200 wineries, a state grape, and an entire month dedicated to Virginia wine.

Through the blog, we explore wineries in the state, look at new literature dedicated to the industry, and dive into the history of the wines we taste, the wineries we visit, and the historic sites near wineries for exploration of the Commonwealth around tastings.

Learn more about the history of Virginia wine, the economic impact wine has had on the state, key players involved in this impact, and discover more about where Virginia wine is today thanks to its rich history and future potential.
