London International Wine Fair hosts Loudoun wines
The British event brought in more than 10,000 spectators and 780 exhibitors from around the world.
All of this year's Loudoun Governor's Case award winners were poured for a crowd of 10,000 wine drinkers, including Sunset Hills Vineyards, Fabbioli Cellars, North Gate Vineyards and Two Twisted Posts Winery.
Boxwood Winery and Breaux Vineyards were all poured at the event as well.
Recently Gov. Terry McAuliffe was in Loudoun for the Times-Mirror's Great Grapes of Loudoun event at Palio restaurant in downtown Leesburg.
He praised Loudoun wine and mentioned the upcoming London International Wine Fair.
“Loudoun County farm wineries are an important business sector, bringing in more than $5 million in revenue to the county each year,” said Buddy Rizer, director of Loudoun Economic Development in a prepared statement.
Loudoun is home to more than 40 wineries, the most of any county in the state, as well as the the most acreage of grape-bearing land in the county.
"The state partnered with wine exporter New Horizon Wines, LLC to plan its participation in the London International Wine Fair. New Horizon Wines is the primary exporter of Virginia wines to the U.K., and they work with the seven wineries going to the fair," according to a press release from the Loudoun Farms website.
