Horton Vineyards makes some wonderful wine. If you like blackberry or blueberry wine, it can't be beat: not too dry or too sweet. Unfortunately the price has gone up quickly and I don't buy it anymore.

Virginia is holding her own in the wine making business but we sure don't benefit from living here as far as price goes.

Even the big box stores are carrying this win: no bargain there either. A nice glass of wine is such a civilized way to relax at the end a day and healthy too. Moderation, of course, is the key.
