SATURDAY, AUGUST 13, 2016, 11:00 AM-4:00 PM
Celebrate a delightful summer afternoon of art and wine along the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail! Each participating winery will showcase one or more artisans from the Northern Neck Artisan Trail. The artists will be on hand to talk about their work and some may conduct demonstrations.
“Arts on the Vine” represents a perfect pairing of wine and art! The event is a joint collaboration between the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail and the Northern Neck Artisan Trail with the goal of bringing together the region’s finest wines and arts.
As most of the wineries are also on both the wine and artisan trail, you can click their links below to be directed to more information on their activities year ‘round.
And, be sure to “like” our trail Facebook pages for updates!
