Here at the VWJ we are very lucky to have made so many friendships across Virginia Wine.
If you’re a “fan” of ours on Facebook – you’re a friend. If you’ve ever said hello to us at a festival, you’re a friend. If you read and enjoy the VWJ, you’re a friend.
None of us at the Virginia Wine Club takes these friendships lightly. We work hard to bring you the best variety of wines from across the Commonwealth.
One of the best things about friends is the honesty. In recent years we’ve learned many of you don’t love Traminette. We likely won’t be shipping that varietal any time soon. We’ve also know that you appreciate the careful editing of the VWJ.
On the rare occasion when we have fallen short, you let us know. Thank you – that’s what friends do.
As always, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wine journey.
