Virginia’s first Wine Week, Love By The Glass, starts today! March 22-28, 2010 marks the beginning of the Virginia Wine Industry celebration. A mixture of all different types of restaurants and wine shops will be promoted that offer Virginia wines for sale by the glass. Virginia is home to more than 155 wineries across the state and is getting national recognition for several varietals including Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Viognier. It is time to embrace and appreciate the local wineries. There are more than 100 participating restaurants and wine shops. Please click the image below for all participating businesses.
This is a really great way to explore some fantastic food and fabulous wines! The businesses participating will add at least two Virginia wines for sale by the glass to their menus and merchandise. Who doesn’t want an excuse to go try a new restaurant while sipping on some delicious wine? It’s time to enjoy this Spring weather while supporting and encouraging the Virginia Wine Industry. Start planning your happy hours and dinner dates! For those of you more interested in cooking at home you can still take part by heading to a local wine shop and buying your favorite bottle! Cheers to the start of a beautiful week!
