Join us for a unique behind the scenes experience where you will be able to "Follow the Grape" from planting through harvesting by participating in the care of our fantastic vines. Each session we will highlight what is taking place in the vineyard.
Pruining/Canopy Management (Summer)
The second event in the Follow the Grape series is Canopy Management. Our Winemaker, Corry Craighill, and Vineyard Manager, Quintin, will guide participants through the steps of shoot trimming, leaf removal, and hedging. After working in the vineyard, guests will return to the Chandelier Room for a glass of wine and to learn more about the vineyard.
We’re going WILD at Sunset Hills Vineyards! Bring the family out to one of Loudoun’s prettiest places and learn how we are working to conserve and restore wildlife habitat for Monarch butterflies, Eastern Bluebirds, and other native wildlife. Enjoy live music, food truck cuisine, Sunset Hills’ award-winning Virginia wine, and a variety of fun wildlife activities for you and the kids sponsored by Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy. A portion of sales from the day will go to Loudoun Wildlife.
