Virginia’s Ag Secretary Haymore Calls Out Texas for Cutting Wine Budget

“Two of our closest competitors in the US, New York State and Texas, are actually cutting their wine marketing and education budgets and cutting back the things they are doing to support their industry. It doesn’t make any sense to us but we’re not arguing. If they want to take those steps backwards, that’s all for the better of Virginia. We are committed to growing this industry.” Quote from Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry Todd Haymore, Virginia.
