Trump reopens winery in Virginia

imageVirginia’s fledgling wine industry is getting a boost from Donald Trump’s millions of dollars, his aggressively high profile and his luxury properties worldwide where wine from his new vineyard will be offered.

Trump and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell formally opened a winery near the presidential estates of Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe on Tuesday.

He told a small gathering he intended to develop the property into 1 of the world’s great wineries.
