Yesterday, after finishing a showing for a client interested in purchasing one of Western Loudoun’s vineyards that is for sale, I headed down Route 9, and happened upon Crushed Cellars. After passing the place several times throughout December, I finally made it a point to stop and I was glad I did.
Crushed Cellars is a family owned and operated winery in the heart of Virginia’s wine country, in the Waterford Cluster. Their wines are sold exclusively at the winery and by phone order, so if you haven’t been there, you probably haven’t had a chance to try their wine unless you have had it at a private event.
While I was there, I tried out their 2011 Vidal Blanc, and as someone who does not drink a lot of wine, I found it to be sweet and refreshing (I like sweets, just don’t drink a lot of sweet wine). I then ventured down to the pond just past the vines that they have in front of the building and fed the coy fish that were recently added as something for kids to see when their parents are visiting the winery.
If you get a chance, go by, try out their wine and say hello to Bob, the owner. He’s a great guy to talk to and he really makes you feel at home. And tell him that we sent you!
