Description:
Get away from the everyday hustle and bustle to enjoy a truly memorable day on and off the water on this Paddle and Wine Tasting Tour.

You will meet your certified tour guides at the winery. From here, you will paddle by canoe or kayak 4.5 to 7 miles along the Potomac or Shenandoah River. This gentle stretch of river is rich in natural beauty. Feel a sense of calm and peace wash over you as you paddle leisurely along these tranquil waters.

You will end your tour back at the winery where you will experience award-winning wines in the privacy of an outdoor pavilion. The elegant setting with linen tablecloths and eight different wines sets the stage for a thorough wine education. After sampling these premium wines, choose your favorite and enjoy a full glass with a pairing of cheese and crackers and your selected picnic lunch.

This Paddle and Wine Tasting Tour is an exquisite experience for groups, couples, wine connoisseurs or simply anyone who can appreciate the love of river and wine.
