publetterDear Virginia Wine Lover,
Frank C. Britt Publisher
At the Official Virginia Wine Lover, our New Year's resolution is to continue to bring you news about Virginia wines... the people who make them and the ever-growing number of people who consume them. We'd like to know what interests our subscribers and what you would like to see in upcoming issues. Send us your suggestions (see below).

While January is typically a slow month, it's a great time to visit Virginia's wineries. Many Tasting Rooms welcome you with a glass of wine to sip by a warm fire. And, why not make it a weekend getaway with a stay at one of Virginia's B&Bs, like the wonderful Mayhurst Inn featured in this issue.

New this month, is a feature on Future Festivals where subscribers can purchase festival tickets now at "early bird" savings. You just select the festival and follow the link to purchase tickets. Additional Festivals will be added each month.

Cheers to the New Year, and to Virginia Wine Lovers!

Frank C. Britt
