  1. As a former vet please thank Bill Sykes for contributing to the great organization, Wounded Warriors. A very noble cause. I really love the blog. Some really good stuff in here.

    I wanted to let you know that my friends and I just created a FREE app for the iPhone called “vinowine” which features wineries in Virginia and Maryland. We thought you might enjoy checking it out and telling us what you think considering your similar interests and passion for the good stuff!

    You can track which wineries you have been to, view upcoming wine festivals, as well as rate and favorite the places you find to be most memorable. That being said, we would really welcome your reviews and comments of the wineries within our app.

    If you’d like to download “vinowine” you can do so here:

    Within our app we will also be creating a “featuring” portion to the app where we can highlight blogs and articles like yours! We want our users to be as informed as possible on Virginia wineries and what Virginia wine lovers have to say. We will let you know when we get that portion of the app done.

    We’d appreciate your help on spreading the word so we can help advertise local wineries as well as highlight blogs like Charlottsville UnCorked. We would also really appreciate it if you’d link to our website as well

    Keep up the good work on the blog and I look forward to reading more!

    1. Thanks, Mike, I look forward to reviewing your app and can appreciate how much time and effort goes into putting this together. I’m ready to get out to more vineyards and events so this will be helpful. How long dud it take you to gather data and develop the app?
