Retired professor's second career leads to outreach
Berryhill's new venture
Retired Richmond Law Professor Wade Berryhill’s passion for cigars came about in a somewhat unusual way. He and his research assistant would get together to watch Boston Legal, enjoy a good scotch, and smoke cigars on a weekly basis. That hobby became a second career in 2011, when Berryhill and Kevin Edmiston, owner of Winston’s Humidor in Midlothian, Va., founded Orinoco 1613 Cigars in 2011. Orinoco, Berryhill explained, “was the original name of tobacco in Virginia and, therefore, America. In 1613, John Rolfe grew the first tobacco that was exported to Europe.”
