[…] Vineyards beat out 22 other Virginia wineries in the Bring LOVE to Your Winery contest, earning the right to display the oversized (16 feet long by 8 feet high) Virginia is for Lovers […]


WOW…some people just cannot be happy. Appreciate this for what it is! If you don’t like it, don’t vote and don’t clutter up the goodness with your negativity!


Holy smokes everyone, it’s a contest that ends in a large piece of artwork for a month, it’s not like the winning winery gets money. As has been stated by many, every winery will benefit from the exposure. Relax and enjoy….it’s all good!

The best and largest, by volume sold, Chateau Morrisette Winery is not on here by choice. They are extremely popular, have thousands of regular fans at all of the great festivals they have on their grounds. Their wines are absolutely the best to be had in Virginia, or anywhere for that matter. My choice, and the choice of thousands, because the wine is worth it, the scenery, ambiance, the outstanding reataurant, staff and the beautiful drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway to get there.
