Leesburg Lives Up to Grape Expectations

Touring a vineyard

Savor the picturesque countryside – not to mention the Merlot – at any of a number of wineries in the Leesburg area.

Do you like to imbibe?

Some people do – let’s be honest, some people really do – and for those who have a taste for things finer than Pabst Blue Ribbon, or most beers, there’s Virginia’s Loudoun County, officially known as D.C.’s Wine Country. Of the 22 wineries and vineyards in Loudoun County, eight are located in Leesburg – more than any other city in the county. People are surprised to find a thriving wine industry in Virginia, and Loudoun County is an integral cog in that economic machine.

There are two winery tour companies in Leesburg to help educate your palate: Virginia Wine Adventures and Point to Point Winery & Vineyard Tours. For those that like to get physical, several bike tours of local vineyards are available from the Trail’s End Cycling Company, located in nearby Purcellville.

Finally, be sure to stay on top of upcoming wine-related events in the Leesburg area, including wine tastings, vineyard-hosted art shows and more. Live music is frequently involved. When you use Apartment Showcase to  rent an apartment in Leesburg, it’s comforting to know that after a hard day at work, fine wine is nearby.
