They are celebrating twenty years as a premier winery in Loudoun County. The vineyard, which began as a hobby in 1994, has become one of the largest wineries in all of Virginia. Breaux Vineyards produces 14,000 cases of premium wine every year, made from grapes grown on the property.
In 1995, owner, president, and founder, Paul Breaux, registered Breaux Vineyards as the 50th winery in the state of Virginia. Two years later in 1997, Breaux produced their first vintage of wine. Today, his daughter and grandsons are proudly continuing his legacy.
Music at the celebration will be provided by The Voodoo Blues, who will be playing the celebration from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Their use of boogie-woogie piano, Cajun blues, rhythmic funk and Creole spirit spice up every tune the band plays, from NOLA classics to modern rock. The Voodoo Blues performs as a trio consisting of Ryan Benton on Vocals, Piano and Guitar, Dave Crane on Bass and Harmonica, and Travis Driver on Drums. All three are experienced musicians having played in jazz, blues, rock, and even classical, and Gospel groups for over 25 years.
This event is totally free to the public and will occur rain or shine. Fees apply for wine tasting and other activities.
“We are thrilled to be celebrating twenty years of business with our friends and family at Breaux Vineyards.” said Paul Breaux, President and CEO. “We are proud to serve a variety of award winning wines and look forward to our future as one of Virginia’s most popular wineries.”
