New Kent Winery plans to invest $715,000, and create seven new jobs, in New Kent County as part of an expansion plan. 

Expansion is possible through the Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development facility grant, the first awarded to the county since Governor Ralph Northam took office. 

“New Kent Winery is honored to receive this grant to help us continue our work in agriculture and bringing awareness to the Virginia wine industry,” says owner of New Kent Winery Joe Dombroski. 

This expansion allows the winery to purchase an additional 120 tons of Virginia grapes over the next three years. Overall, production will reach over 10,000 cases of wine per year.
