Hidden Brook WinerySummary: Travel to the Leesburg, Virginia countryside to visit Hidden Brook Winery located in a large modern log cabin close to Lost Creek Winery. Enjoy the ambiance of the tasting room, light fare and tasting wines.

Hidden Brook Winery was established a few years after its next door neighbor winery. Eric and Debbie Hauck own Hidden Brook and Eric’s father owns the neighboring winery, Lost Creek.. Eric and Debbie would like the public to know that they can visit Hidden Brook, taste good wine, relax in a rustic (country) setting and feel at home. They want to make everyone’s visit special.

Hidden Brook WineryEric made wine with his dad the owner and winemaker of Lost Creek. At one point Eric wanted to create his own brand of wines. He and his wife Debbie searched for property in Loudoun County and when the property next to his parents’ winery became available, they purchased it and established their own winery and vineyard..

The winery has nine acres of vineyards. Varieties include Vidal, Chardonnay, Chambourcin, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Current production is about 2,500 cases of wine.

The tasting room housed in a modern large log cabin offers a country, rustic feel. Numerous tables and chairs are available on one side of the room where a working fireplace provides a welcoming feel. Light fare is available including crackers, cheeses and sausages. Browse the gift selections that include local artists’ creations.
