I really do seem to have become a bit obsessed about American wine of late, but then they are very interesting and can be exceedingly good and I really enjoy visiting the country. Quite a while ago I wrote a couple of pieces about wines from the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Well, I had never tried them before and became pretty excited about them and now I am about to set off to see the wine growing areas of Virginia for myself. I am really looking forward to learning about them properly and being able to report back on anything interesting and exciting.
I will try and publish some of the highlights of the trip every day, just as I did from New York’s Finger Lakes – so keep coming back. The wine trip starts Sunday and I will spend Friday and Saturday in Washington D.C. – feel free to send any ideas for sites to see and places to eat.
You can learn lots about the region here and follow my trip on the map below.
