Vineyard consultant Chris Hill has a long view of local agriculture that he hopes will see the food production sub-economy meet Virginia’s wine success. “I love the marrying of local food and local wine,” he says. “It’s so simple. In the end it’s just all about food, and I consider wine a food.” Photo courtesy of subject.
