May 2016

In May, 11 of the wineries on The Brandywine Artisan Wine Trail will be celebrating the Art of Chester County, with particular attention to highlighting the popular Chester County Studio Tour May 21 and May 22. Many wineries are showing art at their wineries by various

Chester County artists, giving donations of wine to studios participating in the tour, or offering free glases of wine or tastings to

customers who have purchased art during the Chester County Studio Tour. We are passionate about wine and about supporting the

arts, and there is no better time to combine those two passions than in May, in conjunction with the fabulous Chester County Studio

Tour!  When you are travelling from studio to studio, make sure to check out wineries that are in the vicinity as well - wine and art are  a great combination! Go to www. chestercountystudiotour.com for a map of the tour.

Victoria McNeil Le Vine, is an artist and former graphic designer. She received a B.A in Studio Art from Mount Holyoke College.
