Dezel recently jumped on the popular Loudoun County Wine Trail and paid a visit to one of its newest members, Casanel Vineyards. Casanel Vineyards is situated on a beautiful and tranquil forty acre property at the foot of the Catoctin Mountains in Leesburg, VA.
Casanel Vineyards is a vision-turned- reality by owners Casey and Nelson DeSouza, who purchased the Leesburg property in 2006 and quickly began work on an unique and striking tasting room where Virginia wine lovers could gather and share memorable experiences. Nelson, who was in the construction business, used his years of carpentry experience to restore a circa 1800s old cattle barn into a charming and spacious tasting room, which retains the historic structure’s heritage and character. The DeSouza’s also planted a vineyard for future estate wines, which include Virginia’s own Norton, Pinot Gris, Petit Verdot, Carménère, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon grape varieties.
