Virginia is home to the American tobacco industry and one of Wine Spectators 2012 Top 10 Wine Travel Destinations. Where better to highlight the synergy between a premium hand-made cigar and a fine wine?
Cigar smokers are a terrific target market, they are between 35 and 65 years of age, have above income, impeccable taste and are willing to spend a couple of hours supporting their indulgence - usually with a beverage.
The Virginia Wine and Cigar Trail helps smokers find those wineries that support the combined aesthetic of cigar smoking and wine drinking. CigarVolante, sponsor of the Trail, helps wineries appeal to this market with Panacea Pairings, the perfect match of cigar and their wines, and everything it takes to make their winery cigar friendly.
We have 12 wineries in the state of Virginia that support cigars smokers and offer cigars onsite.
