Festival boosts Virginia’s wine reputation

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – On Saturday, the Virginia Historical Society hosted the “Uncorked Wine Festival.”  The event featured wines from ten different Virginia vineyards to showcase the Commonwealth’s growing reputation as a great place for wine.

Some people might know about Virginia wine, but wanted to give wine lovers a place to taste some of the Commonwealth’s best.  Christie Newman from says, “We wanted to keep it in an intimate setting so that people could enjoy Virginia wines in that setting.”

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the YWCA of Richmond, an organization focused on helping victims of domestic violence.
