During this crazy time, I have been trying to support my favorite small businesses when I can. One thing I have definitely been stocking up on is..... wine! I've been using this time to try some new wines and stock up on my favorites. There are lots of wonderful small businesses that can help you do just that, and I wanted to introduce you to VineDication!
VineDication is an online wine shop where you can find many of your favorite Virginia wines. What drew me to this company was that they are a wine startup company owned by women aiming to highlight the wonderful wines in this state. Many people laugh when you say that there are good wines in Virginia but there most definitely are! VineDication's goal is to provide you with the opportunity to experience unique wines as many wines in their online shop are only available at the winery. Currently this business focuses on providing customers with Virginian wines, but they are aiming to include some Californian and Italian wines as they expand.
My favorite part about their wine shop is how user friendly it is. There are a lot of wineries I have visited that are featured on there, but I don't always remember if I liked that specific varietal or vintage. VineDication provides details about each wine and many wine food pairings. It is so helpful when trying to choose the wines you want to try! In addition to their wine shop, you can find recipes on their blog, learn more about wine, or join their wine club.
One of the things I'm most excited about for VineDication is their wine club. When speaking with the founder of VineDication, Nicole, she mentioned that she came up with the idea to start this company by being a part of many different wine clubs over the years. Some things she enjoyed about the wine clubs and some things she didn't, so she created her own to give you the best of the best. The wine club will provide different options of the number of bottles to receive, how often, and the type of wines you prefer. Every month there will be a "Winery of the Month" where you can expect to receive at least one bottle in your shipment. This will be a great way to learn about wineries you have not yet visited as well as try wines from a variety of local wineries.
Check out VineDication online and through social media to find your favorite Virginia wines and stay up to date with the release of their wine club.
