    Lost Creek Winery sold for $2.3 million

    Lost Creek Winery has been sold to Hampton Roads Holdings for just less than $2.5 million.

    The Loudoun County Department of Economic Development announced the sale in a Jan. 22 news release.

    New owners, Aimee and Todd Henkle purchased 50 acres of land, 21 acres of which is grapes. The winery also has the capability to produce 7,000 cases per year. Also on the property is two outdoor pavilions, a tasting room, a banquet room, a gazebo and a 5,000 square-foot home with a six-car garage.

    Lost Creek Vineyards is a Tuscan-style winery near Lucketts in northern Loudoun and was recognized as the Best of Northern Virginia for 2012 by “Northern Virginia Magazine.”

    Lost Creek is one of 34 wineries in Loudoun County. “Loudoun has the most wineries of any county in the state,” Kellie Boles, the Loudoun County Department of Economic Development’s agricultural development officer said. “Loudoun beverage manufacturing, which includes wineries, contributes almost $5 million in taxable sales to the local economy.

    “In less than 25 years, Loudoun County’s wineries have emerged as the leading Virginia producers of vinifera and New World grape wines,” Boles said.  “Soil conditions, temperate climate, access to technical experts and mentors, and skilled winemakers all contribute to Loudoun’s growing reputation as ‘DC’s Wine Country.’”

    The Henkles have retained the services of wine consultant Sebastien Marquet, and plan to expand Lost Creek’s estate varietals to include cabernet franc, and syrah and petit verdot, in addition to offering more traditional Burgundy and Bordeaux winemaking styles.
