Virginia wine is going places. Sales of state-made wine and hard-cider reached a record high in fiscal year 2016.
Rob Kocher Jr. is in the family business of selling wine. His father owns Once Upon A Vine, a wine store in Richmond that’s been there for 12 years.
In the store, Virginia wines have a long aisle all to themselves.
“We do it because we definitely want to support local wineries, putting the money back into the community for Virginia and helping out,” says Kocher.
In the 10 years Kocher has worked here he’s seen a big change in their selection.
