“Work in progress”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

I visit a lot of wineries. My wife and I try to get around to wineries as much as our schedule permits so as we were on our way home from a quick trip to town we decided to try LVV again.
First, the wine. It is becoming difficult for Virginia wineries to stand out amongst one another. Unfortunately LVV has not managed to find its way out of the pack. Their whites were probably the highlight of the tasting as the style of each had been tweaked just enough to make them memorable. Normally I am a red drinker so maybe that says a lot about their whites or a little about their reds.
Secondly, the atmosphere. Spartan. The area is set up like a soup kitchen. Dull tile floors that would look at home in a truck stop diner, tables lined up like a school cafeteria, and unfortunately not much of a view of the actual vineyard. There wasn't the comfortable at home feel that many wineries in the area strive for instead it felt very utilitarian.
Thirdly, the service. This is where I believe LVV finds its strength. The owner was quick to welcome us and very eager to get our impressions of the wines we tasted. He was very knowledgeable about the wines and gave great descriptions for each as he poured.
Not the best winery in the area but it seems like they are making a good attempt in a very difficult market.

“Stay away from this crappy place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Last weekend my wife and I attended this winery's annual lobster fest. It was atrocious. We were told when we checked in our 3 lobsters would be ready "in about 15 minutes" and brought to our table. Over an hour later we still had not received them. The woman working there handed me a lobster. A few minutes later she brought the other two, forgetting to bring the potatoes for one. The lobsters were not fully cooked. When we opened the first one the water running out was green, like the color of salsa. They also charged $8 for an once of red wine. We didn't touch the remainder of the meat because it wasn't fit for consumption. They used only one pot with room for just 4 lobsters at the time. The place was slipsod, incompetent, and didn't really care. What a ripoff. Don't set foot near this cheap and lousy operation.

“Nice full service winery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

They have decent breads, cheese, etc to sit down with a nice bottle of wine. Wines are decent but not the best in LC.

“Nice Winery.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

It is one of at least 5 in the area. They have their own wines. The area is beginning to grow most of their own grapes on good terreouis.

“Ok winnery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2011

Loudoun Valley Vineyards was our 4th stop of the day. The wines were ok and the staff friendly. Not sure if i would make a return visit due to the fact that we found quite a few better wineries in the area worth visiting.
