Virginia Wineworks-21

Virginia Wineworks wines have been created to meet the need for value-oriented wines.  We realized the most ideal and cost effective packaging are the bag in boxes.  These  have long been used in Italy and France with great success.  We are the first Virginia Winery to produce These wines are made from 100% Virginia grapes.  We work with quality grape growers throughout the state to find the best possible fruit to make fun, approachable wines.  We work to create wines that maintain high standards of quality at reasonable prices. A list of retail stores can be found under the “locate” menu.
