    1. CH says:

      Is there a restaurant week in Loudoun County? Do the wineries participate?

      And will there be a restaurant week in Richmond?

      • Casey says:

        Not all of the restaurant weeks are occurring in January. To my knowledge, wineries do not participate, but there’s always a chance! Richmond’s week is typically in October. Some of the restaurants participating in the DC Restaurant Week may be Loudoun County establishments, but besides that, I’m not aware of an actual Loudoun County Restaurant Week.

        • Hi CH & Casey: We don’t have a traditional Restaurant Week here in Loudoun, but there is some planning in the works for a week long dining event that may take place this summer that will include our wineries. Participating restaurants must incorporate local produce and wine into special menus for the week. Keep an eye on our website for developments: VisitLoudoun.org. Thanks for the question!
