    I just saw a program about the real Virginia Dare last evening on TV, and I started to sing, “Say it again, Virginia Dare” from the 40’s, and I couldn’t remember the rest of the words or what kind of drink it was. Thanks to this web site, I now know it was a wine. I was very young at the time…5 years old in 1942 as your ad reads.

    I was 10 in 1942 and do remember the radio commercial very well. I have been trying to find a recording of the tune.
    I was unsuccessful as of yet. Please help if you can.
