Loudoun County’s growing list of over 45 wineries is now joined by Three Creeks Winery on Harmony Church Road in Hamilton.
The winery, which opened briefly in the summer of 2020 and then closed for several months over the winter months to complete additional renovations to the tasting room, recently held a re-opening event.
The nascent winery is owned by P-J and John Lawrence who previously lived in Sterling for more than 20 years.
The couple purchased the 28-acre property — which includes a circa 1898 home built by Quakers — in October 2017 after looking at a variety of options for investing in a vineyard.
The adjacent tasting room is located inside a renovated historic bank barn.
Winemaking has always been a mutual interest they shared after visits to Napa, California and Europe.
Eventually, they attended classes to learn more about the craft and made wine through a custom crush process at the Winery at Bull Run in Manassas as well as at the Vint Hill Craft Winery in Warrenton.
At Three Creeks, the couple has hired Ashton Lough to serve as winemaker. Lough previously worked at Pearmund Cellars in Broad Run before going to the Winery at Bull Run.
“Our main goal is to develop well balanced wines,” P-J Lawrence said.
The property at Three Creeks has been farmed since the 1850s and now has 12 acres under vine, P-J Lawrence said.
Visitors to the adults-only winery can sip on a variety of six reds and four whites as well as a rosé made with grapes from a variety of Virginia vineyards with the Three Creeks label. Two of the reds include grapes from Washington State and Northern California.
In addition to seating on two levels inside the tasting room, an outside patio and seating in areas closer to two of the three creeks is available for visitors.
The winery is open Thursday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
