While they were stationed in Europe during the early 1970's, AnnaBelle bought
her husband (Jim) a home wine making kit. He enjoyed the hobby so much that in 1973,
Jim founded Virginia Winemaker Supply in Norfolk on Chesapeake Blvd. There, he operated the
shop each evening after his day shift for the US Navy. Within two years, AnnaBelle
joined the business by adding inventory of cake and candy making supplies.

In addition to helping in the shop, AnnaBelle began teaching classes. In 1976, Jim and AnnaBelle
relocated the shop to its larger and current retail space on Tidewater Drive.
Once Home Beer Making was legalized in Virginia, it was also added to the product inventory.
In 2018, the Beverage Department outgrew its little corner of the building. Therefore, it
was moved and expanded to the "Annex Wing", where it continues to flourish. At present, we remain
Family Owned and Operated by three generations, as well as Women Owned.
