Join us in Old Town Purcellville for a festival of wine, food and spirits. Over a dozen local wineries will be on hand to pour great wines, as food vendors share with you their tasty treats: local sausage, produce, salsas, pies, and more!
Last year more than 5,000 folks joined us for the day's events - great wine, food, music, shops and fun! We were even flashed mobbed that afternoon.
Catoctin Creek will be pouring from their new tasting room on Main Street. We'll also be doing tours on the top of every hour. Be one of the first to see our new tasting room and distillery on Main Street!

As May comes to a close and June is upon us, we are about halfway through our construction project at the Case Building.
During the month, we finished up most of the masonry repair, and now have a beautifully updated brick building which should not only be structurally sound, but also water tight and beautifully restored.
We also replaced two very rotten wooden roof trusses, replacing them with steel I-beams. There were two reasons for this repair: 1) The trusses were so badly rotted that they would undoubtedly fail in the near future, and 2) The steel allowed us to open up the floor space and remove some inconveniently placed support pillars.
Our HVAC system arrived in May as well, and with another rented crane, we hoisted the units up onto the roof and installed them. Cutting through the 100 year old roof was interesting, as we revealed an old tin roof with paper sheaving beneath a layer of thick stryofoam insulation and rubber membrane.
Looking to the work in June, we hope to finish up with plumbing, electrical, and tasting room finish carpentry. There is lots to do, but we're still hopeful to be in our home in late June, early July. Look for a grand opening announcement soon!
Visit the first family-owned distillery in Loudoun County since before Prohibition. See this working distillery in production, including a 400 liter custom-made Kothe still and condenser. Tours will highlight the process of making distilled spirits, including fermentation, distillation, aging and bottling.
Often, depending on the day, you may see much of this equipment in operation and meet and speak with the owners.
