The National offers a remarkable culinary program celebrating summer with its ‘buy local” program, while preparing food for more than 1,200 guests per day. Our Executive Chef purchases from 65 local farms and 35 wineries in Loudoun County. Summer is truly celebrated at this picturesque outdoor setting on 65 acres of park-like grounds in the heart of Northern Virginia. Under new management since 2014, many outdoor spaces have been added to the property including several fire pits, patios, a pergola and redesigned lawn space for outdoor games and receptions.

Food and wine create an indelible experience, and our culinary team incorporates activities for groups to get to know each other in a relaxed, casual environment. “We know that food plays an important role in the overall experience of our guests and their meals,” says Director of Food & Beverage John Walsh. Our culinary team shares this program with a well-respected sommelier with decades of experience, Mary Watson-Delauder, Chief Wine Officer at The National.

Summer Meeting

Watson-Delauder is a certified sommelier and wine specialist, a contributor to theWine SpectatorAwards of Excellence and an honored guest at the prestigious James Beard House in New York. Her enthusiasm and wisdom are contagious, but most importantly, she wants you to feel at home in her world of wine. “Wine is just show and tell, and it's the best example of show and tell, because it's grown-up show and tell,” she says.

“Our culinary team share our mission and vision in working with local farmers and wineries to source local food for sustainability, freshness and quality,” Geoff Lawson, General Manager and Vice President, recently explained. “They have brought our culinary offerings to a new and higher level and we want to share it with meeting planners and their guests.”
