A new tourism initiative aims to promote the Fredericksburg area’s various alcoholic-beverage producers.
The Grapes and Grains Trail allows people to buy a $12 ticket that gets them a tour of the Hartwood Winery, Potomac Point Winery, Lake Anna Winery, Mattaponi Winery, Blue & Gray Brewing Co. and A. Smith Bowman Distillery.
The ticket also includes a stemless wine glass for tastings with the Grapes and Grains Trail logo on it, and a 20 percent discount at each facility’s gift shop.The Grapes and Grains Trail partnership officially kicks off Father's Day weekend, June 16-17. There will be special events at the participating wineries, distillery and brewery. This is a great way to promote tourism in the local area. We'll have to find a weekend, and a designated driver, to do a tour and report back.
Grapes and Grain tour has a Facebook page where updates are posted.
