Wineries that will ship?
I want to send a gift to someone and would love to have it come from a VA winery but an admittedly half baked search didn't yield any obvious candidates. I realize there are limitations of where wineries can ship from/to SO leaving that aside - does anyone have a 'go to' recommendation from Virginia or some other wine producing state? Thanks
Not Virginia, but St. Supery in Sonoma is great, and our go-to. You can get them in stores. Most lines cost around $20/bottle, but a few lower and more higher - I can't recall a bad one.

There are some states that don't allow wine to be shipped in. Maryland, for one. So check the state your friend lives in first!
I really like Flying Fox and Whitehall (their Grand Cuvee is very good, as well as the breakheart which is a good bargain) along with Barboursville. King Family has some decent wine too. And Jefferson vineyards has some great wines too and the bottles are oh so cool.
We run wine tours and belong to the Virginia Vineyards Assn here in Charlottesville.
The most popular wineries here with our guests tend to be:

I'm probably forgetting one but you can find them all on one website with links to their individual website at virginiawines.org
Without knowing what kind of wine you wish to ship it's hard to point you to one specific winery. And like they say, it depends on the state to which you need to ship. Many states require additional licenses, and some of the wineries just don't have the time and of course money to do them all, and some states are still not allowing shipping. That's fine, more wine for us!
