Central Virginia is one of America’s 10 best up-and-coming wine regions, according to, a consumer advocacy website.

For inclusion in the ranking, the site considered regions with “unique varietals, stunning views and boutique wineries that have distinctive features.”

The website defines the Central Virginia region as stretching from the eastern slopes of the Blue Ridge Mountains, east to Richmond and south to Lynchburg.

“Central Virginia has a long winemaking history, dating back to Thomas Jefferson’s two vineyards at Monticello. Now, Virginia is seeing the birth of its wine industry in the production of single-bottled varieties like Viognier, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot,” the site says.

Other areas mentioned in the report include the Finger Lakes region in New York; Idaho’s Snake River Valley; and the Yakima Valley in Washington state.
