Festival boosts Virginia’s wine reputation
RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – On Saturday, the Virginia Historical Society hosted the Richmond.com “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 Richmond.com wanted to give wine lovers a place to taste some of the Commonwealth’s best. Christie Newman from Richmond.com 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.
