Virginia Wine TV Celebrates Virginia Wine Week

We would like to introduce you to the growing number of Virginia wineries operating in the Commonwealth and to our new website promoting these wines: Virginia Wine TV. The Commonwealth of Virginia is closing in on 200 licensed wineries, in which all are contributing to making fabulous wines and enjoyable destinations. On a fairly regular basis we will be releasing videos covering many facets of the industry; interviews with winemakers, the Virginia First Lady, and critics; discussions about grape varieties; as well as short entertaining segments such as this video and soon, on dog friendly wineries. Plus each video will contain a musical theme performed by a Virginia born or based musician. In this case, Larry Keel & Natural Bridge provide the score. Check back often for new video releases.

Many wineries, retailers, and restaurants will be participating in Virginia Wine Week, March 18th-27th. We ask these businesses to post their specials here in the comments sections. Cheers.

    Very nice production, very informative, and done in a manor that keeps your attention by using descriptions in wine making that could be understood by the novice wine drinker. Congratulation to Paradise Springs on their Governor's Cup Win. Small winery with a great future ahead. Keep it going. Buy Virginia Wine!!

  5. Todd, et. al. - great job! Looking forward to future videos. This is a great time in Virginia wine so you no doubt have a ton opportunities for content.

    Realize this is Virginia 'Wine' TV, but hopefully you'll consider an episode on Virginia cider. Although only two active cideries right now (Foggy Ridge and Albemarle), there are 4 more with licenses pending - will be interesting to see how Virginia cider grows.

    All the best,
    Frank

  6. Frank, we plan to include cideries, meaderies, distilleries, and even an episode on Virginia breweries. I'll post a schedule on upcoming episodes. Thanks for the feedback.

  7. Mike Carroll at the Leesburg Vintner wants all to know that all Virginia wines will be 15% off Virginia wine week. If you plan to visit, you may also want to help in the fight to allow parking on King Street. Otherwise you will have to tote the wines a few blocks to a parking garage,

    Dear Friends of Leesburg Vintner,
    The Leesburg Town Council will be voting on the parking on King Street issue March 22. We need your help. Many of you have already sent an email to the council in support of our position to keep parking as is on King Street. Please, if you have the time send them another email and tell them to vote Tuesday March 22 to leave the parking as is on King Street. This is extremely important to many merchants on King Street and myself. The more emails that are sent, the better chance we have of retaining the parking and making it easier for you to park,shop, and enjoy all Downtown Leesburg has to offer.

    Send your email to council@Leesburgva.gov and tell your friends to do the same. Every email helps!! The email will go to the Mayor and all council members. They voted 4-3 to eliminate the parking on King Street last September.

    As always, thank you for your continued support.
    Sincerely, Mike Carroll
