It’s our favorite time of the year – harvest! This year Sunset Hills is hosting Harvest Fest, a day where we celebrate all of the hard work that occurred during the 2018 growing season. Bring your family and friends and enjoy a day at the winery. There’s lots to do and see at Sunset Hills in the heart of Loudoun County wine country.
Sunday, September 23rd
11 AM – 6 PM
1:30 - 4:30 PM
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to stomp grapes with your bare feet? Let’s crush some grapes to celebrate harvest!
How it works:
- Two people can stomp at the same time. Maximum of five minutes per person.
- Stomping is on a first-come, first-served basis and while our grape supply lasts.
- Grapes stain…a lot. While we will have a rinse station, please wear something you don’t mind getting messy.
Live Music – Justin Trawick and Band
1:30 – 4:30 PM
Rock out to the sounds of Justin Trawick, a local musician who has played DC and along the East Coast since 2006. He’s been featured at our sister property, 50 West Vineyards, during their Live in the Vines concert series, two years in a row and is a proven fan favorite.
Rocklands BBQ & Grilling Company
12 – 5 PM
For over 25 years Rocklands has been serving excellent BBQ in DC and Northern Virginia. Don’t miss the chance to taste their award winning menu at Sunset Hills during Harvest Fest!
Special Wine Release!
2015 Reserve Cabernet Franc
Just in time for harvest and the on-set of the gorgeous Virginia fall season is the release of our 2015 Reserve Cabernet Franc! Sunset Hills is proud to grow Cabernet Franc grapes on site and at our other vineyards. Enjoy this robust quintessential Virginia wine with friends, with food, or on its own – you can’t go wrong!
