The Day of the Norton Grape

Date: May 10, 2019

Location: Philip Carter Winery

The Day of the Norton Grape

On May 10th, we celebrate Virginia’s native grape, the Norton.  Norton was first cultivated in 1820 on Magnolia Farm located in Richmond, Virginia by Dr. Daniel Norton.  Over the remainder of the 19th century, the Norton grape varietal grew in importance as a wine producer especially adapted to the conditions of eastern North America.  In 1873, a Norton wine was declared the “best red wine of all nations” at a worldwide competition in Vienna.  Many of the nation’s finest hotels and restaurants stocked Virginia vintages, and President U.S. Grant is known to have kept a righteous supply in his White House cellars.

 

In celebration of this important day in American wine culture, we are offering our customers a 30% bottle discount on all bottles of our Oatlands! Maximum two case per person.
