Winery at Bull Run will invest $1.7 million in VirginiaStaff Writer | August 25, 2018
The Winery at Bull Run will invest $1.7 million, create 38 new jobs, and double production of its wines, which are made using only Virginia-grown grapes.
Virginia Governor approved a $100,000 grant
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. ■
