Foremost boutique destination winery in Loudoun County, Virginia
Greenhill Winery and Vineyards is undoubtedly one of the most gorgeous Virginia wineries that I have visited. It is in the middle of a county known for it hillsides, views, land, and horses. There are 128 acres, 11 belonging to vineyards, and the other 117 belonging to land for Polo Fields, tasting house/area, and a Farm Store. Yes, the surrounding areas are beautiful, but the winery itself is also stunning. They recently renovated the building in January 2016 to include both rustic and modern aesthetics.
