  • Stop #3 on the Harmony Cluster was Willowcroft Farm Vineyards. I immediately recognized this place from years ago when I pulled up and saw the barn. Willowcroft boasts being "Loudon's Original Winery"...  read more »

  • Pros: Historic Winery, Friendly Staff, Good Range of Wines, Nice Area, Winery Events, Chocolate Pairing Cons: Small, Average Wines, Cramped Atmosphere History: "The vineyards at Willowcroft date back to the early part of the modern viticulture era of Virginia." I was told during my tasting that this is the oldest winery in Louden County and possibly the sixth oldest in Virginia. The area and location give off a classic and older feel than some of the newer wineries in the area. Review: I will start by stating that I arrived at this winery a little late in the day and went when it was cold, windy, snow on the ground, and wasn't able to fully appreciate this winery like I would have. The small parking area was filled with cars for a fondue event they were hosting. The tasting area wasn't too crowded due to the timing, a few couples and people finishing up. The tasting room, located in a barn like building, is somewhat small, not a great area for larger groups if you're wanting to sit down after the tasting. I was unable to see the area outside area, but over-all this didn't appear to be as big as most of the wineries in the Northern Virginia area. I was met and greeted by Lydia. I strongly recommend having her as a server as she's polite, knowledgeable, and friendly. She explained the options and she came to a wine and chocolate pairing (RECOMMENDED) with all of their wines and some chocolates from a local area vendor. I personally think the wines were average and not exactly something I wanted to rush to buy or memorable. I enjoyed them for the most part and even decided to have a glass of their Merlot. Some of their wines have won various awards. I feel if I was going to go back, it would be to have another tasting where I can take a little more time and enjoy the wines thoroughly. Overall, I think this winery is a great place to visit, if not for the wines, for the area, friendly staff, and maybe some of their events. It may be a little small from what I was able to see for a large group of 10 or more while it's cold, but when it gets warmer the outside, it should help. Lydia really made the experience and if I go back I'll definitely request her. I personally don't think the wines are the best in the area but many people seemed to be enjoying them, so to each their own. I would recommend it to a friend and hope to return in the future. Area: 4 Building: 3 Service: 4.5 Wines: 3 Overall: 3.5
  • Getting to the winery is a bit of a hidden route (depending on which way you go, it's a loooong dirt road), but once you get there you are well rewarded. The wines are very good as well as diversified. There are lovely mountain views and even a couple of small hiking trails.
  • Favorite place to go!
  • Excellent energy on part of the staff, there was an awesome selection, and we will be back with friends.
