Virginia Named One of the Best 10 Wine Travel Destinations by Wine Enthusiast!

Wine Enthusiast, one of the most influential wine magazines around, has named the State of Virginia as one of the ten best wine travel destinations for 2012.  The article, which can be found online at and in the February issue of Wine Enthusiast magazine, highlights Virginia as one of only three domestic destinations to make the list of wine regions that are ideal for wine lovers to visit in 2012.  The other two domestic destinations are in California!

The article cites Virginia's rich history, natural beauty, and wine makers as some of the many reasons why Virginia is a hot wine travel destination.  Our state is home to more than 200 wineries statewide.  Virginia has wineries in virtually every area of the State, which sets it apart from other wine destinations.  Where else can you enjoy bluegrass music at a winery, kayak to a winery, taste local wines in a beautiful national park, sip local wines at a national historic landmark, or bike from one winery to another?  You can do all of those things at Virginia wineries!
