If Edwin’s name seems familiar, it should be. Edwin, along with his parents, owned The Virginia Wine Experience and Hop & Wine stores in Fredericksburg. Edwin will be in our store, pouring Lagariza Mencia among other Spanish wines for you to try. He would love to catch up with some former customers and make the acquaintance of other wine enthusiasts.
