This year’s Virginia Governor’s Cup – for red wines, at least – was awarded last Friday to King Family Vineyards
for their 2007 Meritage, a stylish Bordeaux blend grown in vineyards
just northwest of Charlottesville. Fifteen wineries took gold medals in
this year’s competition, which serves as a nice snapshot of Virginia’s
wine industry, which now stands at 157 wineries. Here’s my column in
today’s Washington Post.
