Its all about the wine

Virginia Wine Special License Plate

You can be among the first to own a new special license plate celebrating Virginia wine,
before it is offered to the general public!

As noted on the History page, 2019 marks the 400-year anniversary of the passing of the Virginia House of Burgesses' Acte 12, which required every household in the Virginia colony to plant ten vines for making wine, thus making Virginia the birthplace of American wine.

In recognition of the 400 years of winegrowing in Virginia, Pearmund Cellars has embarked on a promotion to introduce a First in Wine Virginia license plate to coincide with the Virginia wine quadricentennial.

What will the license plate look like?

There are three designs being considered:

License Plate 1     License Plate 2     License Plate 3

Only one of these designs will be selected. Want to vote for your favorite? Click here!

How can I sign up for a plate?

If you would like to have this special license plate on your car, you need to fill out a DMV form VSA 10D - Preorder Request license plate application and give it to Pearmund Cellars at the address on the form, with the fee.

How do I get a DMV form VSA 10D?

There are three ways to get the form:

If you would like to personalize this special license plate, be sure to see the FAQ "Want a personalized plate?" below before filling out and submitting the form.

What will be my fee?

The fee is $10 for non personalized or $20 for personalized. The fee is the cost for DMV to produce the plate. Neither Pearmund Cellars nor any other organization will receive any part of the fee.

Do I pay $10 or $20?

When you fill out your DMV form VSA 10D - Preorder Request license plate application and select "Transfer my existing license plate number" or "New personalize license plate number", your fee is $20. Please note - if your current license plate is a non personalize plate, and you select "Transfer my existing license plate number", you are asking for a set of specific characters/numbers, which is considered by DMV as a request for a personalize plate and the fee is $20.

When you fill out your DMV form VSA 10D - Preorder Request license plate application and do not select "Transfer my existing license plate number" or "New personalize license plate number", your fee is $10. Your plate will have random characters/numbers assigned by DMV.

What form of payment can I use?

Your payment can be made with cash, check or credit/debit card in several ways:

What happens to my application and payment while Pearmund Cellars is collecting the required 450 preorders?

All forms and payments will be held by Pearmund Cellars in escrow until there is a total of at least 450 preorders. Then all will be submitted to the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles. DMV will then produce the plates and mail your plate to you. DMV will only accept preorders from Pearmund Cellars and will return any preorders submitted by an individual.

What happens if there are less than the required 450 preorders?

All applications and fees are held in escrow, in the order received, until we have the required 450 preorders. If there are less than 450 preorders, the special license plate development could be cancelled and Pearmund Cellars will refund the fee to you.

Want a personalized plate?

This special license plate will have the option to personalize it with up to 7½ letters or numbers, where the ½ is a space or a dash.

If you already have a personalized plate, you can transfer the same characters/numbers of your current license plate to this special license plate by checking the "Transfer My Existing License Plate Number" box on the Preorder Form.

If you don't have a personalized license plate or want a different personalization, you can check availability by going to the Virginia DMV's license ordering page and follow the steps below.

The following steps are ONLY to check if the characters/numbers personalization is available; it is not to be used to order the plate.

  1. Since this special license plate is not yet approved, it is not on the list in the "Select a plate type" box. You need to select one of the existing special plate designs that allows up to 7½ letters or numbers, e.g., the "Drive Smart" plate, just so you can see if the characters/numbers personalization is available or is already taken by someone else.
  2. Select the option "I would like a plate with a personalized character combination"
  3. Enter the personalized entry you would like to check
  4. Click on the "View Plate" button
  5. A message will pop up indicating if that characters/numbers combination is available or is already taken.
  6. Even if your primary personal characters/numbers combination is available, select several (up to four (4)) as someone may select the same combination before yours is accepted. If your selection(s) is not unique, DMV will return your preorder and fee.
  7. IMPORTANT: DO NOT click on either the "Purchase Plate Now" or the "Reserve for 90 days" button. DMV will not accept individual requests during this development period.
  8. Close the window.
