As an extension of RiverArt’s July exhibition, “The Art of Wine,” RiverArts is sponsoring a Farm and Winery Tour for the weekend of July 25 and 26. Three of the wineries on the Chesapeake Wine Trail along with farms involved in produce, dairy and flowers will be open for special tours, wine tasting or other farming experiences during the weekend. Our goal is to further celebrate the beauty of the rural area in which we live and to educate our non-farming friends and tourists about the sophistication, complexity and innovations that are part of modern farming today.
