About Us


Family owned and operated since 1973 - Wine and Cake Hobbies began as Virginia Winemaker Supply (at Chesapeake Blvd/Little Creek Rd), selling only wine and beer making equipment and 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 our current location and underwent several expansions, including  an extensive party and bridal shop and gourmet & catering products. At present, three generations and extended family members handle the day to day operations.
