"Virginia's wine industry is hoping to get the state's newest group to offer a specialty license plate. The plate's design will bear the phrase, "Virginia, first in wine", and feature a picture of wine grapes," The Associated Press reported via WTKR in Hampton Roads, Virgina.

Each plate will cost $25. The state currently has 180 other special interest license plates.

Other groups include, Harley Davidson, aviation enthusiasts, members of the military and environmental advocates.

If 1,000 of the specialty plates are sold, the Department of Motor Vehicles will donate $15 from each plate to Virginia Tech's enology research department. They must order 350 pre-paid applications for the plates by July 1st.
