READ MOREThe winery, which opened in 2012 on 225 acres adjacent to the Manassas National Battlefield Park, also produces grapes on site and at its 40-acre vineyard in Rappahannock County.
Its location by the battlefield and proximity to Washington D.C. have made the winery an important tourist attraction, bringing thousands of tourists to the Commonwealth each year.
The Commonwealth is partnering with Fairfax County and The Winery at Bull Run on this project through the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development (AFID) Fund, which is administered by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS).
Governor approved a $100,000 grant from the AFID Fund, which Fairfax County will match with local funds. This is the first AFID award to Fairfax County. ■
