Loudoun Wineries

Almost 30 wineries make their home in Loudoun Country.

The oldest, Willowcroft,, opened in the early 1980s.

The vineyards at Willowcroft date back to the early part of the modern viticulture era of Virginia. They were planted at a time when advisors from the Virginia Extension Service still considered growing European varieties to be very risky business indeed. The first vines were planted in 1980, Those first vines died and were replanted the following year. The second planting survived. Many of those vines grow to this day, and you can see them in the home vineyard.

Most wineries have events during the weekend, music, festivals, dinner. Come out and enjoy the countryside: ,
