The New York Times recently featured Virginia wines in their business section. With the likes of Trump and the founder of AOL buying up Virginia Wine, why wouldn’t they start to acknowledge #vawine as the next big thing?

Virginia “is an emerging region, so the overall quality is not as good as the overall quality of the top California wineries, but it is improving all the time,” said Steven Spurrier, the wine merchant who organized the “Judgment of Paris” in 1976, an influential blind tasting that shocked the world when two California wines beat their French competitors. “The growth is driven by the wineries’ passion for what they do and by the demand of the wines they produce.”
