Virginia ranks fifth among the states in the number of wineries it has.
Virginia wines are continuing to sell at a record-breaking pace.
Gov. Bob McDonnell says Virginia wineries sold more than 511,000 cases in the fiscal year that ended June 30, eclipsing the record set last year.
Export sales jumped more than 74 percent, and McDonnell says new sales to China accounted for a significant portion of those sales.
Virginia received more than $1.7 million in wine liter tax revenue. The Commonwealth currently has 230 wineries, ranking fifth among states.
