Construction began in late April and plenty of progress has been made at the Crossvines project in Poolesville, according to photos by Poolesville Town Commissioner Jim Brown (available below). Crossvines will be a multi-purpose facility in Poolesville that will feature a custom grape-crushing facility, a casual bistro, a special events venue and a winery. It’s located on the Revenue Authority property that also hosts the Poolesville Golf Course.
“Crossvines is an exciting project that will change the economic prosperity of the Agricultural Reserve. As one of the only grape-crushing facilities in the region, this will open up opportunities for more landowners to grow profitable grapes and to explore winemaking as part of their future options.” said County Executive Marc Elrich.
The Crossvines will feature acreage developed for viniculture research, education, training and promotion in partnership with educational institutions. Crossvines will also have a custom crush facility– Its services will also be available to wine growers throughout the area.
