RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – Five of Virginia’s wines earned gold medals at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

Five wines from Virginia Wineries proved to be tough competition being chosen out of 5,500 entries at the largest competition of American wines in the world.

Among those gold medal winners were Barboursville Vineyards, Barrel Oak Winery, Gray Ghost Vineyards and Narmada Winery.

Virginia wineries also brought home 28 silver medals, including one cider, and 28 bronze medals.

The state’s wine industry is one of the fastest growing agricultural sectors with over 380 vineyards and 200 wineries. In 1979 there were only six wineries, far from what the wine industry in Virginia looks like today.
