My husband and I went to Willowcroft with high expectations, considering this is the oldest vineyard in Northern VA. The view was beautiful and we were looking forward to enjoying a glass of wine outside on a picnic table. Unfortunately, that did not happen. We walked into the tasting room and right up to the bar, there was plenty of... More

One of our favorites! Enjoyed the tasting in a rustic barn but some of the wines one the website are only available to club members. Enjoyed the thorough explanation of the wines. Great variety of dry, sweet and dessert. Spectacular views with private outdoor seating. Oldest vineyard in Loudon county. Definitely recommend.

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... More

We really enjoyed our visit to this little gem yesterday, tucked away in the mountains. We enjoyed a very generous 7-wine tasting and the atmosphere. With all the snow on the ground, we couldn't enjoy the outdoor seating, but we'll go back to see it in nice weather. They have a great view of the valley below!

When our garden club wanted to learn more about growing and harvesting grapes, Lew Parker of Willowcroft Farm Vineyard was the man to contact. This is the oldest vineyard in Loudoun County, started by Lew in the beginning of the 1980's. We spent time among the grapes, hearing the history of Willowcroft and the importance of sighting the vineyard, then... More

Willowcroft is one of the older Virginia wineries and it shows. The wine is not extreme in flavor (as some) but smooth and delicate. The maturity is obvious. Willowcroft is a great rustic setting with a spectacular garden view. We've taken visitors to Willowcroft several times but visits in hunting season were marred by sudden and loud bangs. Unexpected and... More

First off, there were stink bugs everywhere. I know that's not entirely there fault because it's located in a barn, but it was INSANE how many there were. Very unappealing. As for the wine... it was overly tannic, very one-note, either overly sweetened (whites) or watered down (reds). The only good thing about going to this winery was that we... More

I used a Groupon to visit this winery. We were surprised how far off the beaten path it lays. We had a tasting and chose a glass from the samples. A plate of cheese came with our Groupon and we sat and chatted while enjoying our wine. There was one other group; a large family and no room for any... More

This was our second visit to Willowcroft. This visit we used a $20.00 Specialicious deal which included a cheese, salami and cracker plate, two souvenir glasses and $20.00 gift shop credit. Sara walked us through our wine tasting, explaining each wine. She was very knowledgeable and fun to talk with. On a previous visit, we were served by Steve, who... More

Beautiful part of Loudoun County, VA. Girl that did the tasting was very personable and did a great job. Kinda chintzy on the wine, though they did taste 7 different types. I've got eye droppers that hold more. First tasting in the US so this could be the norm. Wine was very good - hadn't had Virginia wine for a... More
