-First-ever statewide event promotes Virginia wine in restaurants and wine shops-
Love By the Glass, the first-ever Virginia Wine Week, where wine lovers will celebrate Virginia Wine Week March 22-28, 2010 at more than 100 participating restaurants and wine shops across Virginia and Washington, DC.
Virginia Wine Week promotes restaurants and wine shops who offer Virginia wine for sale by the glass. From March 22 to March 28, participating businesses will add at least two Virginia wines for sale by the glass to their menus and merchandise. Look for Virginia Wine Week posters, menus and decals or visit www.VirginiaWine.org to find participating businesses.
“Virginia Wine Week is an exciting new partnership to expand local wine offerings in our restaurants and shops,” said Annette Boyd, Director of the Virginia Wine Marketing Office. “As Virginia’s reputation for wine excellence continues to grow, so does demand for our product. Wine lovers now have a new reason to get out and enjoy the success of the Virginia wine industry.”
“Visitors to Virginia want to experience local history, culture and of course – local food and wine,” said Alisa Bailey, President and CEO of the Virginia Tourism Corporation. “It’s important for visitors to find local wine on menus in Virginia’s restaurants and Virginia Wine Week will help encourage that.”
Virginia is home to more than 155 wineries across the state in nine different wine producing regions. The state is getting national recognition for several varietals including Viognier, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot; and it is producing a growing variety of wines quickly gaining a loyal following including Bordeaux styles blends, sparkling wines and the native varietal Norton.

Dave Matthews’ Blenheim

· MONDAY: Mars & Saturn cooperating on Monday make a good
day for focus and productivity. Get your projects done!
After Monday, things will begin to slow down for the next 3 weeks.
· The next three weeks are a great time to move forward quickly in
short bursts of energy and intent, then stop at just the right times to
review what you have accomplished and plan your next step.
If you are not ‘in sync’ with these patterns, it can be very frustrating, but, if like the surfer out in the water, you watch intently, and wait for the right time to catch the right waves and ride them in to shore, you will accomplish much with great support from the universe. And every surfer knows that when there are no waves, the either wax their board, catch some sun or visit with friends, until the time and the waves are right again for them to take their boards out in to the ocean and ride some more waves.
· WEDNESDAY: Wednesday continues the stressful theme of proper use of personal power and public power, personal responsibilities and public responsibilities, real actions versus what you said you would do, and the reasons behind your actions or lack of action.
This pattern is strong especially through next Monday, so it still gives you some time to get things back on course and moving in the right direction, not only for you, but those around you.
(THINGS TO WATCH: VOTES ON HEALTHCARE, and the repercussions, public and private from the vote choices, PUBLIC FIGURES HAVING THEIR SECRETS REVEALED IE: Tiger Woods, Jesse James.)
· THURSDAY: The sun and Moon are both in FIRE signs that light your spirits and make for great cooperation with others, and a good time to get together with those that you care about.
· FRIDAY: Mercury and VENUS meet up in the strong sign of ARIES, which combined with the Moon in the fire sign of Leo which ENERGIZES EVERYTHING. There is a lot of FIRE in the air, so watch your emotions and the emotions of others carefully. Try to enjoy the energy without getting ‘burned’ by it all.
· SATURDAY/SUNDAY: The Moon moves out of firey Leo and into a quieter Virgo making for a great weekend to work on your spring cleaning and get a lot of projects and organizing accomplished.
This includes organizing our physical world, but also going within to ‘clean and organize’ our inner world as well, so take some time for quiet and reflection. Sit and sip on a cup of tea, while you consider changing the furniture around and cleaning the drapes.
