After a morning of shopping, slow it down with a swirl and a nosh. With over 40 wines to choose from, Horton Vineyard  tailors tastings to your palate. Enjoy a sparkling Viognier in their  greenhouse or with your picnic between the vines.

For a second glass and savory dishes, head to Well Hung Vineyard. Founded by three women who value a good joke and a great glass of wine, the vineyard welcomes lingering and laughing. Outdoor dining in the courtyard is a must to enjoy the charming views of the historic downtown Mainstreet landscape.
