A Most Unusual Wine Festival in Virginia Supports Animal Charity

peaksofotter1The 11th Annual Horse and Hound Wine Festival takes place next Saturday, July 11.

We first heard of the Annual Horse and Hound Wine Festival when we visited Peaks of Otter Winery & Orchards in Virginia. The winery is located in the mountainous region close to areas that were once home to numerous stills. Today Peaks of Otter Winery & Orchards is known for producing fun wines. You will hear tales of a very “hot” pepper wine available at the winery. Find out more about the winery in the article on Wine Trail Traveler.

The 11th Annual Horse and Hound Festival takes place at Johnson’s Orchards & Peaks of Otter Winery, 2122 Sheep Creek Rd, Bedford,Virginia.

Music for the festival is provided by Sam Austin and Silverline.

In addition to food and craft vendors, the festival includes:

Patriotic Opening at 12 Noon
Lure Coursing (This is a humane re-creation  of the chase of the hare by a hound. According to the website information, The “bunny” consists of strips of white plastic attached to a continuous loop line that runs through a series of pulleys to simulate the zigzag path of a rabbit on the run.”
Muskrat Races: This event uses an artificial lure.
Parade of Horses: by Reba Farm Inn and Saddle Soar Equitainment

Kiddie Korral: Activities for children supervised by Brook Hill Farm Rehabilitation and Rescue.

Part of the proceeds will benefit horses and dogs 501-3c organizations. More information is available on the website http://www.bedfordwine.com. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.
