But we already knew that. Check out this Washington Post article about a blind taste test given to experts who were told they were pitting US wines v. French ones, without more specific state origin information.
Maybe now we'll finally start seeing some Virginia wines on area restaurants' wine lists? Maybe?! I can't tell you how it irks me when restaurants are all OMG WE <3 LOCAL, ORGANIC, LOWER MILEAGE/EMISSIONS/LET'S SAVE THE EARTH and all their super heavy cases of bottles of wine come from around the world. Show me local wines, or admit your cowardice and ignorance. Enjoy!
