Two Local Vintners Win Big Awards

Big awards for two local wine producers. The publication Wine Enthusiast has given its latest Lifetieme Achievement Award to Gianni Zonin, the owner of Barboursville Vineyards. The magazine has also given its Rising Star Award to Eric Trump, the owner of Trump Estate Vineyards & Winery in southeastern Albemarle. Governor McDonnell says Zonin and Trump play a key role in placing Virginia among the top five wine producing states in the nation.
