The Day of the Norton Grape

On May 7th, 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 Magnolia Farm! Maximum two cases per person.

Rosewell Day

On March 19th, we celebrate the 296th anniversary of Rosewell.  Located in Gloucester County, Virginia, Rosewell estate was built in 1725 by Charles Mann Page and Judith Carter Page, sister of Charles and Landon Carter.  At 12,000 sq feet, Rosewell stood as the largest and costliest mansion in the colony.  Thomas Jefferson was a frequent and welcome visitor at Rosewell, and it is said that Jefferson wrote a draft of the Declaration of Independence in what is now known as the “Blue Room,” a room situated on the northwest corner of the second floor.  In 1916, Rosewell was destroyed by fire, although it remains as beautiful historic ruins today that are open to the visiting public.
