In August we are celebrating the Art of Painting. The Brandywine Valley had a long history of famous painters, from the Quaker images of Edward Hicks to the Wyeth Family of artists, Howard Pyle, and the beautiful landscape artists that have captured the essence of the Chester County environment over the past two hundred years. This is an area that inspires art and this month, every listed winery will highlight a different contemporary painter in their tasting room..Come for the wine and enjoy the art!
