Per Montgomery County: More than a decade in the planning, earlier this week Montgomery County and the County Revenue Authority dedicated “The Crossvines,” a new development in Poolesville that will feature an event hall, a specialty restaurant, a place to hold meeting retreats and one of the few grape-crushing facilities in the Metropolitan Washington Region.
The grape-crushing facility, which now County Executive and then County Councilmember Marc Elrich first explored over 10 years ago, will be a boon to many property owners in the County’s Agriculture Reserve who have turned to using their land to grow grapes and produce wine. One of the biggest expenses for small wine producers is to find a facility that can crush the grapes as part of the wine-making process. The Crossvines will be a key element to that part of the wine-making economy.
The Crossvines was built on property owned by the Montgomery County Revenue Authority and was built under partnership with Weller Development Partners. Montgomery County’s delegation to the General Assembly worked to get State funding to support building of The Crossvines.
The mission of The Crossvines is to create economic opportunities and investment in the agricultural tourism, events and wine-making industry sectors of the County. In partnership with the University of Maryland, The Crossvines also will be part of an educational research venture regarding soil conditions and the ability to produce top-notch wines.
The event facility will hold more than 250 guests for weddings and other types of major affairs. The Crossvines, which also will feature a restaurant, a bar and meeting retreat space, will open early in July.
A Wind Advisory remains in effect on Wednesday, starting at 6pm until 4am Thursday.
