Mr. Bill’s Wine Cellar on Brambleton Avenue in Roanoke is hosting a beer and wine tasting tomorrow, Saturday, April 23 from noon to 5 p.m. Although the tasting is free, they’ll be collecting voluntary donations for tornado victims in Pulaski County.
Specifically, they hope to raise enough money to help buy 10 bundles of shingles ($200), a construction ladder ($200), 10 heavy duty rakes ($150) and 10 round shovels ($200). Shop owner Bill Philips plans to deliver the items himself on Easter Sunday.
Again, you don’t have to make a donation. If you want, go on by and taste some wines.
The topic of Mr. Bill’s, which sells the widest selection of Virginia wines in the area, makes me think about a discussion I have been wanting to have on this blog. What is your favorite Virginia winery and/or your favorite Virginia wine?
