Virginia Wineworks produces wines under both the Virginia Wineworks label & the Michael Shaps label. In addition, we are focused on the increasing the popularity of custom winemaking.

  • I am sure this will be a taboo subject, but with the economy the way it is, does anyone have suggestions on a good (read acceptable) box wine? I vacillate between reds and whites, but tend to shy away from really heavy reds as a "daily drink". I know it may be too much to ask (or for some to admit), but any suggestions would be appreciated.Mike Read More

  • Although I have long considered Cabernet Franc my favorite red, I have been sadly disappointed with nearly every one I have tried this year...except one--Heron Hill's Ingle Vineyards 2006 Cabernet Franc (Finger Lakes) brought back my love of Cabernet Franc.
