Virginia Wine in Forty-Seven Words or Less

By Posted on Oct 09 2011 | By

Regional Wine Week started Sunday, October 9, and runs through Saturday the 15th and is sponsored by DrinkLocalWine.com. As part of the celebration, DLW is challenging anyone from the “other 47”—folks not from California, Washington or Oregon, the Nation’s leading wine producing states—to submit an essay in 47 words or less on their state’s wine industry.

Here’s this blogger’s submission:

Mother of Presidents.  Home of the Shenandoah Valley, daughter of the stars. Fabric of the Nation, torn and restored on its soil.  Four hundred years of wine history on the cusp of national recognition.  Viognier and Cabernet Franc blossoming on the palate.  

Ahhh…my Virginia.
