Imagine yourself among the pristine vistas of Virginia wine country, saying your vows as the sun sets over the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains in the background. After a flawless reception complemented with delectable food, you’ll celebrate your new life together as you dance under a star-filled sky with your closest friends and family. There is nothing as intrinsically beautiful or romantic than your wedding at Hillsborough Vineyards.

Known for offering a rare combination of handcrafted, exceptional wines, incomparable ambiance, and unsurpassed hospitality, Hillsborough Vineyards is a wonderfully idyllic setting for this most special day of your life. From the moment you drive up the hill covered in grape-laden vines, there is a sense of peace and tranquility which is unique only to a vineyard. Walking from the parking area under a Wisteria adorned veranda, you’ll emerge onto a vast stone patio encircling our historic stone barn. From this elevated vantage point, you have a panoramic view of the picturesque Loudoun Valley country side nestled below. The sounds of trickling water as it flows down from the waterfalls and streams into separate koi ponds delight your senses. The immaculate gardens encapsulate you in serenity, and fill the air with the sweet smell of roses and lavender. A gentle breeze over the nearby vines, reminds you that today is your special day!

Before I met my husband, I went to Hillsborough Vineyards. It was gorgeous and I thought to myself, this would be great place to have a wedding. I love wineries and this one had one of the best views I'd ever seen. So when I got engaged, my first thought was Hillsborough Vineyards. The owner, Bora, is so great (I even took a picture with him at the end of the night). He was able to give us special pricing for having the wedding on a Friday. The day of the wedding, everyone asked me how I found Hillsborough and raved at how beautiful it was. It's a beautiful place for a chic, rustic, winery wedding.

My husband and I attended a wedding at Hillsborough Vineyards in June 2012 and fell in love with the winery. The atmosphere, the wine, the ceremony area, the reception room and the outdoor dancing area were simply perfect. At the time, we were still dating but we said that if and when we get married, we would do it here.

A month later, we got engaged. We called the winery to see if they have availability in Fall 2012. I talked to the owner, Bora Baki,and went in for a consultation with Asli Baki. We confirmed the date right there and then. What we loved about this place is that there is a wedding planner on site and her name is Erica. During the three-month planning process, she was very responsive and provided great advice. In addition, on the day of the wedding, she did an awesome job. She took away a lot of stress from the wedding party.

As I mentioned earlier, the place was simply perfect. Since we got married in October, the colors of the leaves - different tones of rich orange and yellow in the background - were beautiful. The weather held up and it was warm. The ceremony started at 6:00 pm but the wedding party showed up a couple of hours earlier to take pictures. The outdoor ceremony area was beautiful with the vineyards in the background as well as the mountains. Since we had a relatively smaller wedding, with 75 guests, the reception area was cozy and perfect. The area could sit up to 120 to 140 people. After dinner, we were out in the patio area dancing it up. Guests were hanging out all around the winery.

Of the most important things in the winery is the wines. Hillsborough Vineyards has really good wines. All of our guests complimented and asked us where they can buy the wines!

Erica was absolutely the best coordinator ever. She was so easy to work with throughout the planning process. On the event day, she decorated exactly as I had planned and was flexible when it came to last minute changes with the schedule. You can't beat the beautiful setting at this place.

Distinctive location with beautiful views. Family-owned vineyard. Very responsive and easy to work with, but size and layout limits flexibility. Large indoor space. We had 80 guests and it was perfect. Good value. Good wine too. Having a dedicated caterer is very convenient. The caterer customizes your wedding day meal especially for you. The day of coordinator did an excellent job with the day of event flow. We met with her about a month before the wedding to discuss layout, etc. I also liked that they were flexible with vendors. They give you a list of approved vendors but the only one you have to use is the caterer but her food is excellent and pricing is competitive.

Hillsborough Vineyards was the PERFECT venue for my October wedding. The setting was gorgeous, the venue staff were accommodating and organized, and the food and wine were amazing. The wedding coordinator, Erica, was a joy to work with. She possesses the perfect personality for a wedding planner, from a bride’s perspective. She took charge on everything that mattered but deferred to the bride and groom when appropriate. She was always pleasant while making sure all the wedding details were taken care of and going smoothly throughout the evening. The caterer, Karen Harper-Fuog, was excellent and the food was even better than I had hoped for—and I’m a pretty picky foodie! The only thing I’d suggest keeping in mind is that when you see the sample menu and sample prices that Hillsborough provides in your info packet, Karen will be tacking on a sizable staffing fee that’s above the per-person estimate—though, honestly, this fee didn’t not seem as exorbitant once I saw the quality of the staff and how amazing they were at serving the wedding guests in an expedient and unobtrusive manner.

Hillsborough is an intimate and beautiful setting that was the absolute idyllic location for a fall-lover like me!

When we were looking for venues we had about 6 wineries in mind, and we narrowed that list down to three and finally decided on Hillsborough, which turned out to be the best decision we ever made. Picturesque doesn't begin to define this venue.

We were married on 9-10-11 and it was an absolute perfect day. The sunset was remarkable, the large grapes on the vines were beautiful, and the entire place was clean and perfectly set-up. Hillsborough wedding coordinator, Erica, was fantastic from the day we booked the venue (14 months prior) to the day of the wedding. Erica was always quick to respond to emails or phone calls and was always ready with a great answer or idea. Bora, the owner of the vineyard, was always kind to us and our families whenever we visited Hillsborough prior to the wedding... I also found him to have a great sense of humor, even though I did not see him Greek dancing that evening.

We want to thank their staff for making our wedding day absolutely perfect, and there wasnt a single person that didnt think that this was one of the most beautiful weddings they had ever seen. All thanks to this venue (and my beautiful bride).

Hillsborough is an absolutely breathtaking venue for a wedding. We looked at several wineries all over Loudon County, and Hillsborough has the most amazing views and a charming rustic patio and tasting room. The owner Bora Baki and his family are all very involved - by the end they recognized me and my whole family immediately and always welcomed us with a glass of wine. The on-site wedding coordinator Erica Barron is fantastic. She was very responsive to questions before the wedding and incredibly helpful getting things set up and making sure our actual wedding day ran smoothly - every little detail down to wiping off the chairs which had gotten wet in a quick rain shower right before the ceremony.

A few limitations: The venue is best suited for events of no more than 120 guests - they say they can accommodate 140 but given how full it was with our 90 guests I think this would be very crowded especially in the dining room. The only rain back-up option is to rent a tent from Capital Party Rentals through the caterer (about $1000) or to have the ceremony/reception inside which is only possible for small groups. The venue requires all weddings to be from 6 pm - 11 pm (after the winery closes for the day) which somewhat limits the length of the reception. You are required to use the exclusive caterer, Karen Harper-Fuog, who fortunately is fantastic. The cost is reasonable, but there are a lot of hidden extra charges - a beer corkage fee if you choose to serve beer, bartending fee, an automatic gratuity on all wine, etc. Also, while you can get an ABC license to allow you to serve beer, no hard liquor can be served.

Overall, we are very happy to have gotten married at Hillsborough, and keeping the above in mind, would definitely recommend it to future couples looking for breathtaking views and great wine.

Hillsborough is a breathtaking venue, plan and simple. We had guests who had just gone to a vineyard wedding in Sonoma, and they said that this wedding was actually more beautiful than the Sonoma wedding--something they didn't think possible. Moreover, Erica, the vineyard's wedding coordinator, runs a tight ship. She fulfilled every wish we asked of her and kept the evening running smoothly. I honestly don't know what we would have done without her.

If given the chance to do it again, we'd choose Hillsborough in a heartbeat. It was amazing!

This is a family-owned vineyard 20 minutes from Leesburg and a little over an hour from DC. We used them for our wedding and reception for 85 guests (their maximum capacity is 120). When we saw this place, we fell in love with it. It is breathtakingly beautiful and our guests were all just as charmed as we were. Unlike many of the other vineyards in the area, the inside of the venue and exterior building materials have a pretty, rustic look rather than looking like a cheap basement.

The owner, who handles most of the wedding details, is a man in his 60s, so he can be skeptical of brides, which can get a little frustrating when you're trying to pin down all the little last-minute details. However, the family is dedicated to making your day wonderful and they will absoultely perform for you day-of. Their in-house caterer is fantastic, and I was picky about that being a home cook and "foodie." The setting was the most memorable part of our wedding and something we and our guests will always think back on.

Oh, and the wine is delicious!

Overall, we were very happy with Hillsborough Vineyards. The site is very charming, the staff are wonderful, and the views and scenery are unbeatable (believe me, we spent months touring venues all around greater DC). Bora, the owner, is great--he was accommodating, responsive, professional, and friendly. We visited the vineyard several times before the wedding, and he and his staff were always very welcoming. The only issue that disappointed us was that they require you to use vendors from a (short) list that has been pre-approved. We were a bit weary of this at first, but in general the vendors we hired turned out to be great.

Overall, we highly recommend Hillsborough Vineyards!
