Have you ever found yourself with a short amount of time and want to maximize your time spend doing something fun? If that fun includes a quick visit to some of the most beautiful wineries for incredible wine tasting and food you won’t believe, then you should take the time to visit the Loudoun Heights section of Loudoun County, Virginia. DW&S team writer, Frank Morgan, shares some of his favorite recommendations.
Where to begin in Loudoun Heights
Begin your day in the Loudoun Heights with a tasting at Breaux Vineyards in Purcellville (they open at 11 am). Enjoy a tasting of current releases and then enjoy a glass of Nebbiolo on the patio while taking in views Short Hill Mountain.
Just three miles away is Hillsborough Winery and Brewery. Here you’ll find excellent wines, the largest planting of Fer Servadou, a grape indigenous to southwest France, in the U.S., and expansive views of the region from the hilltop tasting room.
Have dinner at Grandale Restaurant at 868 Vineyards (just two miles away) and then overnight at AltaTerra Farm Bed & Breakfast (just two miles from Grandale Restaurant). Wind down with a glass of local wine around the flagstone fire pit.
