In the early 1900s, Charlottesville’s Monticello Wine Company and its Virginia Claret Wine were so well-regarded that the city declared itself to be “the Capital of the Wine Belt in Virginia.” The wine industry in Virginia enjoyed a significant rebirth beginning in the 1970s.
The rebirth was led in part by the investment of the Zonin family of Italy in a new vineyard in Barboursville in 1976. Barboursville Vineyards served as a catalyst in the 1970s, alongside the now defunct Oakencroft Vineyards. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, many other vineyards and wineries joined the mix and by 2009, over 163 wineries were operating in Virginia. By 2011 there were 192 wineries operating in Virginia.
