Wine Lover Friends,
Cheers to the New Year and all good wishes for a peaceful and prosperous 2016! We look forward to continuing to bring you news about Virginia wines...the people who make them and the ever-growing number of people who consume them.
Winter is a great time to get away on the weekend and visit your favorite Virginia wineries, where many will welcome you with a glass of wine by a warm fire. Be sure to check out January events for tours and tastings and other special activities.
This is the month of the Great Virginia Wine Lover Chili Contest, so send us your favorite recipe. Let us know what you think of our very own special chili recipe which follows below.
Thank you for your continuing interest and support of Virginia wines and the Official Virginia Wine Lover e-Newsletter!
