Lansdowne Resort Expands Exclusive Wine Tour Program
Demand for Northern Virginia Winery Experiences Spurs Growth
As demand for wines produced in DC Wine Country increases, tourism to Northern Virginia wineries and vineyards is growing. In response to the success of the Discover DC Wine Country package, Lansdowne Resort announced today the expansion of their Saturday wine tour to also include a Sunday excursion to a pair of wineries. Starting November 2, the Northern Virginia winery resort will offer exclusive wine tours to 868 Estate and Hillsborough Vineyards each Saturday, and visits to Doukénie Winery and Breaux Vineyards each Sunday.
The weekend wine tours depart Lansdowne Resort at 11:00 a.m. and will spend 90 minutes at each wine facility with transportation provided by Reston Limo. The Discover DC Wine Country package can be booked for the entire weekend, or to include one day of winery tours. The package starts from $237 per night and includes overnight accommodations at the AAA Four Diamond resort, transportation to the wineries and complimentary buffet breakfast for two.
Non-package guests can also register for the weekend wine tours by calling the resort at (703) 729-8400. The cost of the wine tour each day is $50 per person and does not include tastings at any of the wineries.
“There is no doubt that the increasing interest in Northern Virginia wines has a direct effect on the interest in area wine tours.” said Michael Snapkoski, director of sales and marketing at Lansdowne Resort. “We are located within 30 minutes of a couple dozen wineries in Loudoun County, and we are fortunate to have some incredible winery partners participating with us to provide a unique wine tour experience for our guests. Plus, offering transportation to the wineries allows our guests to fully enjoy a fun day of tastings and return safely to the resort.”
Lansdowne Resort is located in scenic DC Wine Country about 40 minutes west of Washington DC and eight miles north of Dulles International Airport. The AAA Four Diamond property is International Association of Conference Center (IACC) and Virginia Green certified and has 296 luxury guest rooms and 14 suites. Amenities and resort recreation include five restaurants; an Aquatic Complex with five pools and a waterslide; three tennis courts; 12,000 square foot Spa Minérale with 13 treatment rooms; and The Golf Club at Lansdowne with 45 holes of golf designed by Robert Trent Jones and Greg Norman, and managed by Troon Golf.
