Update: Our first stop is changing! We will have lunch at Magnolia's at the Mill (West End doesn't do lunch /forehead)
Following the Meet and Greet, we will enjoy a relaxed drive through Western Loudoun to have lunch at the Magnolia's at the Mill in Purcellville, VA. After lunch, some tours of local wineries and breweries will be available to join! Notable stops include Dragon Hops Brewing, Otium Cellars, and Bluemont Vineyard.
Magnolia's at the Mill
Located in the historic town of Purcellville, Magnolias at the Mill is renowned for its cuisine and service. Housed in a magnificently restored 1905 grain mill, Magnolias' simple clapboard siding and exposed beams give the restaurant a cozy ambience while the wheels and pulleys still suspended from the roof speak of its hard-working history.
Dragon Hops Brewing
A relatively new brewer in the area, they have only been open since early May. Be among the first to try them out! They grow their own hops locally in Loudoun County
Otium Cellars is a boutique winery located just outside of the picturesque town of Purcellville in Northern Virginia. With its roots in old Franconian tradition, Otium produces quality wines from one of the best Western Loudoun County terroirs. Quaint with a German flare, owner Dr. Gerhard Bauer has brought a sense of home to Loudoun County.
Winemakers Ben Renshaw and Max Bauer create unique, complex wines with Austrian and German varieties such as Grüner Veltliner, Grauburgunder (German Pinot Gris), Blaufränkisch, Dornfelder, and Zweigelt. Other varieties you may find in the tasting room include Chardonnay, Merlot, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
You can see all the way to Reston from the tasting room deck.. amazing view, not to be missed!
Bluemont Vineyard was established in 2007 when the first grape vines came into full production. We now grow over 7 varietals of grapes including Viognier, Norton and Cab Franc, and are on the leading edge of bringing Petit Manseng and Albarino to Virginia Wine Lovers visiting the growing number of wineries in the area.
As a small-run Virginia winery, an average of 6500 carefully crafted cases of wine are produced each year. We invite you to join us in the love of this land we steward and to discover a broad spectrum of wines produced from its terroir guided by the skill, enthusiasm and artistry of the team creating each unique vintage.
