The Wineries and Distilleries of Virginia Wine and Cigar Trail™

What better place to highlight the synergy between cigars and wine than Virginia, the birthplace of the American tobacco industry, the new home of one of the fastest growing wine producing regions in the country, and a Wine Enthusiast Top 5 Wine Travel Destination for 2012.

Drinking wine and smoking cigars are similar aesthetics, marrying a combination of sensations; the bouquet of the wine, the room aroma of the cigar, the feel of a dry wine or a full smoke in your mouth or the complex flavors of either and both playing on your palate. Combine that with the camaraderie that goes along with the enjoyment of both and you describe the foundation for The Virginia Wine and Cigar Trail.

The Virginia Wine and Cigar Trail highlights those wineries that promote and cater to this shared aesthetic.
