Where it All Began
Fabbioli Cellars is a business and a concept that has been in the works for almost 20 years. When we moved to California in 1987, we had in the back of our minds the idea that we could find a piece of land and grow some grapes. It sure sounded easy back then! Kids, life, careers, land prices, cash flow and family steered us back East in 1997. We knew that the idea would not work for us in CA, but our time was well spent in gaining the knowledge, skills and confidence to make it happen in Virginia.
In early 2000, Colleen was driving young Sammy around to get him to settle down and stumbled into a 25 acre parcel in the southern Lucketts area, just north of Leesburg in Loudoun County. We had been seeking land for a while but were unable to find the right piece. Although this piece did not fit all the parameters of a perfect vineyard site, it would be able to grow good grapes. It also filled many other concerns and needs for our family as a home.
The planting began in 2001, along with building the house. The main planting was Merlot with a little Petit Verdot for blending.

From planting to pruning, crushing to bottling, and delivering to pouring, our team is the key to the success of our rapidly growing business. Bound by a common passion for fine wines, earth-friendly farming, and lasting friendships, we revel in the challenges that each day brings. Confident that our efforts will not only bring us closer together, but will positively impact the experiences of our customers and our community while showcasing the best in Loudoun's rural economy.
