On (some) news stands now: the February issue of the national wine publication Wine Business Monthly, which contains some great news for King Family Vineyards in Crozet. The magazine put King in the top 10 “Hottest Small Brands of 2007.” No big deal, you say? Then consider this: Not only was it the only winery of the 150 or so in Virginia to be picked, but it was also the only winery on the entire East Coast to be picked. The magazine describes the winners as having “achieved success by delivering on quality,” and having “emerged as leaders within the region they represent.” The Wine Business Monthly website will be updated with the full article in mid-March.
Cheers!: King Family Vineyards was the only East Coast winery to be picked for Wine Business Monthly’s "Hottest Small Brands of 2007."
