The history of Virginia wines goes back to the colony’s colonial origins. Since then, wine has had an influence on individuals in the state, legislations passed, and has affected the state agriculturally and economically over the centuries. On this website, Virginia Wine: History Uncorked, I broke down the centuries by their failures, progress, discoveries, innovations and potential for the future:
- 1600s: A Century of Hopes and Failures
- 1700s: A Century of Continued Failures but Progress
- 1800s: A Century of Discovery and Progress
- 1900s: A Century of Loss, Rediscovery, and Innovation
- 2000s: A New Century with National and International Expectations
Virginia history is filled with influences of wine. This website and blog are dedicated to uncovering those influences and revealing their effects on history, especially on the economy of the state.
We want to hear from you! As public historians, it is our job to preserve history and make it available to the masses. In addition, it is important to educate the public on how these historical influences and discoveries affected the decisions made and helped the state progress to where it is today.
