Virginia Wine Month kicked off yesterday 1 October and with almost 200 wineries now in the state, there are lots of ways to celebrate.

Virginia Wine’s website features all the ways to ‘discover your local crush,’ this year’s theme:

No matter what part of the state you’re in, there are wine festivals going on with the backdrop of autumn’s foliage. Virginia Tourism’s website has a comprehensive list.

And don’t miss Virginia Tourism’s Virginia is for Lovers oversized LOVE artwork at Blenheim Vineyards outside Charlottesville. They beat out 22 other Virginia wineries to feature the LOVE. Snap your photo on the sign and enjoy the fabulous Blenheim wines in their tasting room. In celebration, Blenheim Vineyards’ winemaker Kirsty Harmon will offer 10 percent off all wine purchased in October if the customer mentions the LOVE campaign.

Cheers to Virginia Wine Month![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
