Lost Creek Winery, Leesburg, VA celebrates 10th Anniversary
PR Log - Jun 12, 2012 - Lost Creek Vineyards and Winery will be celebrating their 10th anniversary. They were one of the first 8 wineries to open in Loudoun County, Virginia. There are now 33 wineries operating in Loudoun County. The winery is owned and operated by Bob and Carol Hauck, who have a lifelong passion for wine. Their vision has been to keep the quaint atmosphere of a farm winery, producing hand artisan wines with distribution out of the winery only.
Bob started making wine at a young age learning from his Italian neighbors. He then pursued more education in wine making, learning from some of the local pioneers in the Virginia wine industry. In 1995 they then purchased 52 acres of land and begin the process of planting the vineyards. 2002 was the year they opened the winery, deciding the wine supply was sufficient to sustain the winery. Ten years later, Lost Creek Winery is a beautiful Tuscan-style winery that continues to produce great Virginia wines. The winery was recently voted one of the "Best things to do in Northern Virginia" by Northern Virginia Magazine's Best of 2012.
2012 will see the addition of a new award winning winemaker, Sebastien Marquet, who will work with Bob to create even more new wines for our customers. Sebastien has over 23 years of experience in wine making, having started in his native Burgundy France.
With two things to celebrate, Lost Creek Vineyards and Winery will hold a 10th Anniversary Celebration, June 30, 2012 from 12:00 to 5:00pm. It will be a family oriented event offering many activities for children and adults.
