From Area Development Magazine:
“We’ve called Virginia home for much of our lives and have spent the majority of our professional wine careers exploring all that our beautiful state has to offer viticulturally. As small producers ourselves, we founded Common Wealth Crush to help grow the next generation of fellow Virginia winemakers and brands, bringing these minds together under one roof where collaboration and creativity can flow. […] We are passionate believers in the continued winegrowing potential of Virginia, and by leveraging strength in numbers and community we strive to generate ‘common wealth’ for all those involved in our program, and by extension, Virginia Wine as a whole.” […]
“During October, we celebrate Virginia Wine Month and the many positive impacts that our world-class vineyards and wineries bring to the Commonwealth. From the more than 10,000 jobs the industry has created to the more than 2.64 million tourists visiting our wineries each year, Virginia’s wine industry contributes so much to our economy and quality of life. […] I am delighted to see continued investment in the industry and congratulate the owners of Common Wealth Crush for their commitment to bring even more great wines and wineries to the state.” […]
“I am so pleased that the Commonwealth could partner with city of Waynesboro through the AFID program to support this important new addition to Virginia’s thriving wine industry. […] In addition to creating new markets for Virginia’s grape producers, Common Wealth Crush will support new wineries and winemakers by reducing the high start-up costs that are a common barrier to market entry. I applaud the company’s owners for this unique business model and wish them much success.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
