Program Links 23 Va. Wineries to Civil War Sites

March 13, 2012

A new travel program in Virginia aims to connect history lovers to wineries and wine lovers to history.

The Sesquicentennial Winery Passport program links 23 wineries to nearby Civil War battlefields and historic sites.

The pocket-size passport provides information on each winery and a list of Civil War sites. It includes a map with the locations of 42 battlefields in Virginia. The passport can be stamped at each winery visited to create a keepsake.

The Virginia Tourism Corporation says participating wineries have created Civil War 150th Anniversary wine labels.

Passports are available at the participating wineries or online.
