    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.

    As a volunteer, I’m producing a documentary for the Finger Lakes Museum on the history of grape and wine production in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. Paul Garrett was an important figure for this region especially after Prohibition. Although I recall most of the lyrics and the tune for that singing advertisement about Virginia Dare wine (I was born in 1935), I’d like to find and use a recording of the original ad. If you can steer me towards that, I’d be delighted to acknowledge your help in the documentary’s credits. Gary Cox
