Christening a ship for good luck before its first voyage dates way back. There were blessings in ancient cultures involving drinking of wine or even animal sacrifices, many of which had religious tones to them. Often, friars in the middle ages would board maiden British ships and pray while laying hands on the mast, and would sprinkle holy water on the deck or bow.
While wine is gone after its contents have been enjoyed, the experience of sharing the bottle with friends and family lives on. The world is fast-paced these days, and being able to sit down and spend time with each other is one of the most precious gifts one can give. Here are some of our holiday choices to gift and to share with those you love.
The Fredericksburg community is close-knit, and City Vino loves to partner with other neighboring businesses to help keep that sense of community going strong. One of those businesses is our upstairs neighbors, Fredericksburg Theatre Ensemble (FTE) at Fred's Theatre.
