 Viticultural Regions: Virginia has six specifically designated grape growing regions:

A distinct winegrowing region is known as an Appellation.  In some states appellations are large enough to have sub-appellations.

  1. Monticello
  2. Northern Neck George Washington Birthplace
  3. Rocky Knob
  4. Shenandoah Valley
  5. Eastern Shore
  6. North Fork of the Roanoke

The history of wine in Virginia began in 1619 with the 12th Act of the joint House of Burgesses.
The House decreed that every householder annually plant and maintain ten vines.

Great wines, good food, special events and fun tours available year round. Back roads through the countryside wind past working farms, gorgeous views and the nation's premier "Hunt Country." Come enjoy the beauty of the Loudoun Valleys while driving the Loudoun Wine Trail that connects nine wineries.

Each year there are over 300 wine festivals in Virginia.  Some events have over 40,000 wine lovers tasting and learning about fine wines of Virginia.
