5 of 5 Born and Bred in Richmond Va February 21, 2020
Reviewer: Alex W. from Richmond , VA United States  
Born and bred in Richmond Virginia Norton grapes are one of few native wine Grapes to the United States. In the early 1820's Dr. Daniel Norton created and cultivated this grape near the Siegel Center in Richmond Virginia where the VCU Campus is currently. In 1873 Norton even won a gold medal and was deemed "the best red wine of all the nations" at the Vienna World's Fair. The 20th century prohibition wiped out Norton and pretty much all other wine grapes but in Missouri where it had become a star of the states wine industry Norton survived because of some well hidden and well tended Vines of Bootleggers...or so The Story Goes.
Please enjoy a great wine grape!
