Celebrate a delightful summer afternoon of art and wine throughout our 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, the Northern Neck Artisan Trail and the Virginia Oyster Trail with the goal of bringing together the region’s finest wines, arts and seafood.
