Here are some questions to help you get started planning your private winery tour:
With Loudoun’s rolling hills of farms and vineyards, pastures filled with grazing horses, and the Blue Ridge Mountains along the horizon, it’s hard to believe you’re just 25 miles from Washington DC. If you’re looking for the truly special Virginia views, here are a few recommendations – we doubt you’ll be able to tear yourself away from the view long enough to visit more than a few in one day.
Begin your day in Virginia’s second smallest town, Hillsboro. Just outside of town, Hillsborough Vineyards is perched along a mountain slope. The tasting room is housed in a renovated 1840s stone barn, a cool respite during the dog days of summer and cozy by the fireplace in winter. From the terrace outside, visitors experience Hillsborough’s luxuriant gardens and trickling fountains, framing the view of the Loudoun Valleys below and the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance.
Travel northwest from Hillsboro to Breaux Vineyards, one of Virginia’s largest wineries with over 100 acres of vineyard planted across their 404 acre estate. Proceed up the meandering driveway past manicured lawns that give way to sweeping views of vineyards as they extend up Short Hill Mountain. Nestled between the hills, Breaux’s vineyard and mountain views can be enjoyed from the tasting room, Patio Madeleine, and their landscaped terraces.
End your day with one of the most impressive views in the county. Bluemont Vineyards sits high on an eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains at 951’ above sea level, offering spectacular views of the countryside and beyond. It’s said that on a clear day, you can even see the Washington Monument from the tasting room. The winery takes advantage of the views, offering numerous seating areas both indoors and out for guests to linger over the scenery and enjoy an overview of DC’s Wine Country
Below are some ideas for stops on your private winery tour:
Proximity to DC: Staying in the nation’s capital, Arlington, Alexandria or Tysons and don’t have a lot of time? Paradise Springs Winery and The Winery at Bull Run are the closest to The District and are open daily starting at 11 a.m.
Onsite Dining: Chef and Co-Owner Michael Moosher offers a selection of entrees every weekend at Winery 32 in Leesburg, while Executive Chef Author Clarke oversees the kitchen at Grandale Restaurant at 868 Estate Vineyards.
Two for One: When you want a selection of libations, here are a couple of family owned properties that provide options for everyone:
Pet friendly: While many local wineries are pet-friendly and often have their own four-legged mascots, Virginia Wine in My Pocket includes the following noteworthy locations: Willowcroft Farm Vineyards, Winery at La Grange, and 8 Chains North. In addition to catering to hounds, Barrel Oak Winery also offers horseback riding.
Beyond NoVa: A little over an hour’s drive south Washington DC, two Fredericksburg area wineries worth the drive are Morais Vineyards and Winery, and Potomac Point Winery and Vineyard. Further south, try these celebrity-owned wineries in Charlottesville: Blenheim Vineyards, owned by musician Dave Matthews, and Trump Winery, purchased by real estate mogul Donald Trump and now overseen by his son, Eric.
