About Us

 


HISTORY


Family owned and operated since 1973 - Wine and Cake Hobbies began as Virginia Winemaker,

Supply (at Chesapeake Blvd/Little Creek Rd), selling only wine making equipment & ingredients

(founder, Jim Eversole's hobby).  Within two years, Jim's wife, AnnaBelle, joined the

business and started selling supplies in cake decorating and candy making and offered classes, as well.

In 1976, the store relocated to the current location. Over the years, home brewing was legalized in VA &

added to the product offerings. In 2018, the Beverage Making Department was expanded into the "annex wing".

At present, we are "Women Owned" and run by three generations plus extended family members

and co-workers that handle the day to day operations.
