Real estate mogul Donald Trump is marking the opening of his Virginia wine enterprise, which he purchased from former socialite Patricia Kluge and her husband after the bank foreclosed on their business.

The reality-show figure is hosting a reception Tuesday at Trump Vineyard Estates in Albemarle County. Gov. Bob McDonnell and Trump's son Eric, the winery's president, also were to attend the invitation-only gathering.

The elder Trump bought Kluge Estate Winery and Vineyard in April for more than $6 million. He hired Kluge as vice president of operations and her husband, William Moses, as chief executive officer.
