Grandale Farm Restaurant
“An elegant farm-to-table restaurant in a vineyard setting in Loudoun County, Virginia.” The wine-vineyard experience is at its best when paired with great food and a beautiful location. Our love of Grandale Farm Restaurant brought us back many times over the last four years for its delicious food, excellent wine list and since 2012, the 868 Estate Vineyards.
For our HDRCHIC friends, you will remember our feature of Grandale and its beautiful landscapes, ponds and seasonable changes of color. Our Beyond the Yum and Chef Jacy friends will remember our delish food features from their brunch and dinner menus. In other words, we love this place and it is a favorite Loudoun County Wine Country “must-do” at least once per month.

“The adventure began when Peter Deliso, Wendy Charron and Carl DiManno, all with a strong interest in amazing wine and hospitality experiences, decided to take the bold step to open a premier vineyard and winery. Our vineyard was launched in 2012 when we planted the first 10 acres of vines and opened the doors to our tasting room where we are proud to pour a variety of wines including Pinot Grigio, Rose’, Chardonnay, Merlot and others. The 868 Estate Vineyard property boasts the highest elevation in the valley between the Short Hills and Blue Ridge mountain ranges at 868 feet. Our 120 acres will charm you with views of the vineyard, the two mountain ranges, the valley below and the abundant wildlife. Sunsets can be spectacular as the shadows of the vine trellises lengthen and the entire western sky blazes with orange.”*
