Amrhein Day proclaimed in Roanoke

From BECKIE SPAID: AmRhein’s officially celebrates its 90th Anniversary on Saturday, November 5, 2011. This day has been proclaimed “AmRhein’s Day” by the County of Roanoke, as presented in a Proclamation to the Amrhein Family during the Board of Supervisor’s meeting on October 25.

Amrhein is a German name meaning “on the Rhein” (Rhine) River (AmRhein). AmRhein’s was founded in 1921 as FC Amrhein’s, providing jewelry design and repair for the Roanoke Valley. AmRhein Wine Cellars was added to the company’s offerings in 1999 on Bent Mountain, VA. It is an estate-grown winery, specializing in wines with a German influence. The winery consists of three vineyards in Franklin, Roanoke and Botetourt counties, totaling over 40 acres and yielding 20 varieties of grapes. The winery’s portfolio contains over 15 wines, and boasts numerous national and international awards.

In 1992, the offerings expanded with Amrhein’s Brides & Formals to include a full range of attire for brides and the wedding party, as well as cocktail dresses, evening gowns, tuxes, shoes, and accessories. The company name then changed to Amrhein’s Brides, Formals & Fine Jewelry.

Today, AmRhein’s Fine Jewelry, Brides & Formals, and Wine Cellars remains a family owned and operated business. AmRhein’s can take couples from the engagement ring to the wedding ceremony, and offer everyone that perfect gift or perfect excuse to shop. With AmRhein’s, Memories Begin Here!
