June 2016 Issue


In the June issue of Virginia Living, we share the story of watermen of the Chesapeake Bay who have gone to amazing lengths to preserve some of the last remnants of its hardest-working watercraft, its classic buyboats, travel to Old World wine city Bordeaux where we find a fresh new vibe, offer recipes for Latin American-inspired dishes to kickstart summer entertaining, and meet mixologists at Richmond’s Heritage, Dutch & Co., Maple & Pine and Shagbark who are taking the craft to a new level. We talk with innovative fashion designer and Lynchburg native Becca McCharen of Chromat and bestselling author Adriana Trigiani, and introduce new bound-in supplement Property & Home, a look at luxury living in the Commonwealth featuring the state’s top real estate offerings and industry leaders.
