    Virginia wines are continuing to sell at a record-breaking pace.

    Gov. Bob McDonnell said Wednesday that Virginia wineries sold more than 511,000 cases in the fiscal year that ended June 30.

    The previous record was almost 485,000 cases sold in fiscal 2012.

    Export sales jumped more than 74 percent, from about 3,300 cases in fiscal 2012 to more than 5,800 cases. New sales to China accounted for a significant portion of export sales. McDonnell said.

    Virginia received more than $1.7 million in wine liter tax revenue.
