We Virginians have every soil, aspect, and climate of the best wine countries.
Windsor, CA (PRWEB) October 20, 2008
As the original Jamestown settlers first made wine from native grapes in 1608, Virginia has proudly proclaimed itself "First in Wine." Thomas Jefferson later proclaimed: "We Virginians have every soil, aspect, and climate of the best wine countries." Now, 400 years after the first wines were produced in the state, lovers of Virginia wines, and those who will come to love them, can buy them with considerable savings from VinoShipper.com at http://www.vinoshipper.com/virginia.
While the state has been producing wine for 400 years, within the past few decades there has been a renaissance in fine winemaking, with scores of new artisan wineries opening throughout the state. According to critics, these wines are on par with other wines of distinction produced throughout the world, but with each Virginia winery and wine having its own unique personality. The state's wineries produce a wide range of varietals, including Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonel, Chardonnay, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Seyval, Traminette and Viognier.
"We are very pleased to bring a large collection of Virginia wines together in one website," said Steven Harrison, VinoShipper CEO. "Up until now it has been hard for those outside of Virginia to have access to these boutique wines. With VinoShipper.com/virginia, they and their friends, family, and colleagues can taste the art and craft that makes Virginia a world class winemaking region."
The goal of VinoShipper.com is to be an efficient global retailer for wine. It does so by expanding the ability of the wineries it represents to reach out to those who appreciate good wine and who value having a broad selection. By connecting these consumers directly to wines they may not otherwise know, and by maximizing the winery's' profits, VinoShipper.com benefits the consumer and the winery.
