Festival boosts Virginia’s wine reputation

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – On Saturday, the Virginia Historical Society hosted the Richmond.com “Uncorked Wine Festival.” ┬áThe 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. ┬áChristie 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.
