Many people enjoy the opportunity to kick back and welcome the lazy, hazy days of summer. Those who consume alcoholic beverages may relish the opportunity to sample new drink varieties during the seasonal change when many local wineries, distilleries, and restaurants showcase new drink varieties.

“Our wine slushies are unbelievably popular in the summer,” said David Sheldon, owner of the Hampton Roads Winery located in Surry. “When we go to farmers markets, customers will stock up to get them through to their next visit,” said Sheldon.

Sheldon and his wife, Diane, who’s co-owner of the winery, make their slushies from scratch and sell them by the glass or pitcher at the winery in addition to mixes that are available for consumption at home. “A pitcher of our slushies costs $30, which is about 25-percent less than if you ordered individual servings,” said Sheldon.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
