Promoting wine tourism opportunities in the​​ Eastern United States

Eastern Wine Tourist powered by the Virginia Grape

Same Quality Content with an Expanded Scope

The Virginia Grape

The Virginia Grape was originally conceived as a blog devoted strictly to the promotion of the Virginia wine industry. Over time, however, as the quality of wine throughout the Eastern United States became more apparent, the focus of the blog began to shift.


As a result, we rebranded as Eastern Wine Tourist in late 2017. The scope will continue to expand over time in an effort to include more of the Eastern US and Canada. These regions are largely underrepresented by wine writers, but offer amazing opportunities for oenophiles interested in exploring wineries without traveling across the continent or to the other side of the Atlantic.
