About Virginia Wine
The state of Virginia boasts a landscape and climate primed for the production of wine. In fact, seven of the United States’ American Viticultural Areas (AVAs), federally recognized growing regions, can be found in our state.
Virginia is comprised of five distinct climate regions: the Appalachian Plateau, the Appalachian Ridge and Valley Region, the Blue Ridge, the Piedmont, and the Atlantic Coastal Plain.
The western area of the Virginia has a granite-based soil while the eastern region is very sandy. It is not surprising, given Virginia’s diverse terrain, climate, and landscape,that the wines produced here give way to an exciting variety of tastes, varietals, and subtlety in flavor.
