October is Virginia Wine Month and at 39 wineries, Loudoun has more wineries than any other county in the commonwealth. With so many wineries, there's a place and a taste for most anyone. And there's always something going on at our local wineries - live music, food pairings, vineyard tours, and more. In honor of Virginia Wine Month, we're highlighting some of those events that would make a great introduction to Virginia wine. Plus, its harvest season in the vineyards and the fall colors will be peaking this month making October the perfect time to visit DC’s Wine Country®.

With all that beautiful fall foliage painting Loudoun’s already scenic landscape now is the perfect time to take advantage of Visit Loudoun’s Photo Contest. While you’re out touring Loudoun’s wineries and other attractions, share your photos of your visit on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #DCsWineCountry. Each month we'll select our favorite photo and that winner will receive a snazzy Loudoun wine-themed t-shirt. We'll also pick an annual grand prize winner to receive tickets to Epicurience Virginia. 39 wineries and 31 days in this month - you better get going!
