A Special Bottle

Celebrate the agricultural art and community of farmers that make Virginia Wine so exceptional with a bottle of Cornus Virginicus. ​​Barboursville Vineyards and the First Lady of Virginia have collaborated to craft this red blend. A limited amount of bottles remain, so order a bottle (or two!) for the wine lovers in your life. 

Have another favorite local wine? Contact the winery about picking up an older vintage or consider putting a few bottles away now to gift in the future. 

Consider giving a wine club membership to keep wine stocked year-round. If you’re looking for a place to start, consider the Taste of Virginia club, which will share sips from all around the state.  

Virginia Wine Country Experiences

Make this special time of year even more memorable with seasonal experiences across the state. From lights in the vineyards and carriage rides to special tastings and festive events, the perfect gift is waiting at a nearby Virginia winery. 

For an extended experience, consider gifting an overnight stay at one of these wine-country accommodations: 

Upgrade the experience by dining at a winery with full-service restaurants on the grounds.
