Chrysalis Vineyards in Loudoun County to add creamery and bakery

Governor Terry McAuliffe has announced that Chrysalis Vineyards will expand in Loudoun County, creating 12 new jobs and investing $478,000. The vineyard will add a creamery and bakery to its operation, providing visitors with the opportunity to purchase locally produced cheeses, breads, and wines on site. Chrysalis Vineyards will purchase 100 percent of its agricultural inputs from Virginia farmers.

“Chrysalis Vineyards’ investment and job creation in Loudoun, and the company’s commitment to purchase Virginia-grown products, underscores the crucial role that agriculture plays throughout the Commonwealth,” the governor was quoted as saying in a news release.. “Investments like this create jobs, tourism activity, and new markets for Virginia’s farmers. This new facility will be a unique addition to the rural agritourism assets in rural Loudoun County.”
                             
The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services worked with Loudoun County and Chrysalis Vineyards to secure this project for Virginia. Governor McAuliffe approved a $24,000 grant from the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development (AFID) Fund, which Loudoun will match with local funds.
