Va. is for wine lovers (who like history)

A little chardonnay with your Chancellorsville?

Twenty-three Virginia wineries are taking part in a travel passport program intended to drum up interest in that industry and the state's observance of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and emancipation.

"The attractive passport is pocket-sized and has a page for each of the 23 wineries including room for tasting notes, a description of the featured wines, images of the labels and a list of nearby battlefields," according to the Virginia Tourism Corp.

A fold-out state map pinpoints 42 historic sites. Visitors carrying the passport can have them stamped at each participating winery, according to a press release issued Monday.
