The wine industry is expanding rapidly. High demand for quality grapes from area wineries has led to increased revenues for independent growers. A well-managed vineyard on a suitable site can generate significant income per acre.
The Loudoun County government strongly supports agricultural industries. Prospective and new growers enjoy assistance from the offices of Cooperative Extension, Economic Development, Building and Development, and Mapping.
Loudoun growers benefit from the extensive network of local commercial vineyard and winery experts.
