If you live in Virginia, you know Loudoun County loves its wine. Driving through the County, you can see the countless breathtaking vineyards right from the country roads. The numbers confirm what we see with our own eyes in this community. Loudoun County makes up 1% of the land, yet Loudoun grows 19% of Virginia’s wine grapes, and the annual wine production is valued at $36 million. While Loudoun County’s ample wine selection and contribution to the local economy and culture is no secret, Tracy Hamlin’s Sweet Jazz & Wine Festival combines beloved wine with one of Loudoun’s best kept secrets: the lively jazz culture and renowned jazz artists.
