According to virginiawine.org, this year Virginia Wine Month is celebrating 31 years since it was officially established in 1988. There are close to 300 wineries and 7 established American Viticulture Areas (or AVA for short) in Virginia. The wine industry in the state has changed drastically over the last four decades and so has the quality of wine. With twenty-four different varietals that grow in Virginia, there is no shortage of new wines to try!
Now, what are you waiting for?!? Grab some friends and go exploring! Along the way, be sure to stop and visit the crew here at Bluestone. The view is always beautiful on top of the hill, but there is something about visiting the vineyard in October that makes the trip a little extra special.
Thanks for tuning into this week's edition of Out of the Barrel. Cheers!
