The sale of Virginia made wine is up 26 percent in the past five years, but the sale of cider is up 200 percent in the last year alone and 10 percent of that total (more than half a million cases) was made at nearby Chateau Morrisette in Floyd County. With wine competition on the increase Chateau Morrisette has developed no less than 29 flavors of cider.
