Loudoun Wine Trail
Conveniently located just 25 miles from Washington, DC, the Loudoun Wine Trail boasts 35 high quality, artisanal vineyards, more than any county in Virginia. Each boutique winery offers an array of perfectly balanced varietals to be enjoyed by all, from the casual wine drinker to the aficionado. The wineries, nestled among the Bull Run, Catoctin, and Blue Ridge mountain ranges, offer serene spots from which to view the breathtaking surrounding countryside.
With so many wineries located in the thriving viticultural area, the Loudoun vineyards have been grouped into five smaller clusters for those who wish to make a day or a weekend out of wine tastings and tours. Each cluster offers a unique experience: as visitors drive from one award-winning vineyard to the next, they pass by historic estates and horse farms, meander through acres of lush, rolling hills, and enjoy miles of winding mountain roads.
A visit to the Loudoun Wine Trail is perfect for those who need a breath of fresh air and some peace and quiet from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life, or for those who just want to drink fantastic, small-batch wine right where it was grown. For those wanting a romantic getaway, Loudoun offers many cozy bed-and-breakfasts, perfect for those wanting to extend their tour of Loudoun wine country. And for those who have lived in the area for years but don’t know much about it, the wine tours offer the opportunity to learn the rich history of the land.
