Virginia Wine Lover Magazine Will Publish First Mag May 2008

Alright. Alright. So I am on a Virginia jag. And why not? Some of the best wines on the eastcoast come from Virginia. But I am geographically challenged. It's hard for me to get my hands on the Virginia stuff as easilly as I can many other states. And Virginia is growing by leaps and bounds. Which is exactly why there is a new magazine coming out to cover it - Viginia Wine Lover magazine.

I will never forget our first visit to the Virginia Wine Festival many years ago. Dominique and I were shocked at not only how big the industry had grown down there, but how polished the wines were. Each stand had something to offer. However, the secret is well out in the open these days. Virginia produces some world class wines!

According to their website:

The Virginia WINE LOVER™ is a new, exciting quarterly publication for Virginia Wine Lovers that is both entertaining and informative…filled with in-depth articles and fascinating facts about Virginia wineries and the wines they produce. It includes detailed maps, a listing of wine festivals and events and much more!

WINE LOVER™ will focus on Virginia wineries and the wines they produce, as well as the people, places and events related to the growing wine industry in the Commonwealth. Each issue will include:

Features on people, places, events and trends within the industry
In-depth wine-related articles
Interesting interviews with “Who’s Who” in wine
Fascinating facts and information about wines and wine making
Timely listings and details about wine festivals and events
Wine Country map with winery locations and driving directions
Wine-savvy guest columnists
Wine recipes and wine pairing suggestions
And that’s just the beginning!

WINE LOVER™ will be distributed to over 100 Virginia wineries. Some 80,000 to 100,000 copies will be distributed quarterly throughout the Commonwealth. Readership of approximately 400,000 is based on four time pass along.

WINE LOVER™ is positioned as the most targeted media available to reach thousands of people in Virginia who have the interest and income to buy what you sell!
