Trump wine sales double in Virginia

Feb 16, 2017

(WTVR) - While some stores like Nordstrom, TJ Maxx, and Sears have announced plans to eliminate or minimize the sale of products related to President Donald Trump, the Virginia ABC has no such plans.

Virginia ABC sells six wines from Trump Winery in Charlottesville.

Trump wines available on the Virginia ABC website range from a $13.79 bottle of Trump Winery Chardonnay made with "100 percent estate-grown grapes from the coolest terroirs in our vineyard," to a $26.29 bottle of Trump SP Blanc De Blanc.

Spokespeople for the national retail stores said the reason for the pullback was based on declining sales of Trump-related brands.

In contrast, sales of Trump wine more than doubled from 2015 to 2016, according to Virginia ABC spokesperson Valerie Hubbard.

"Trump wine is the number five wine brand sold in Virginia ABC stores [in terms of dollars]," she said.
