EDITOR’S NOTE – Opening Day

By. Neil Williamson VWJ Editor

The Virginia Wine Expo always reminds me of Virginia Wine’s equivalent of Opening Day in Major League Baseball.  While it is the first big wine “festival” of the year, most of the wineries have not yet completed bottling the winery full portfolio for the year.

It is a time when we celebrate all the fine vintages in the state.  We were thrilled to see so many of the wines we have featured garner medals in the annual Governors Cup competition.

Virginia Wine Club President Stewart Reynolds aStewart and Lucand I got to chat with 2013 Governor’s Cup winner Luca Pashina of Barboursville Vineyards.  Beyond being a great wine maker, Luca is a fantastic ambassador for Virginia wine.

In tasting across the event, we found a number of new wineries that we hope to feature in future months.  In addition, we will be working with some of the smaller wineries to see if we can offer their most popular wines through our website.

The Virginia Wine Club works hard to feature wineries that you know and wineries that you should know.  We also strive to send you the best Virginia has to offer in a variety of varietals.

Thank you for letting me be a part of your Virginia wine Journey.
