Knoxville, MD (PRWEB) June 06, 2012
River and Trail Outfitters has teamed with Tarara Winery, named “Best Winery in Loudoun County” for eight consecutive years, to create the ultimate fun multi-adventure day for outdoor enthusiasts with a thirst for paddling, pouring and performing.
The stress-busting triathlon of sensory goodness kicks off with a guided 4.5-to-7 mile mellow kayaking or canoeing tour down the gently flowing Potomac River, known for its wealth of wildlife and water birds, such as Blue Herons, Wild Ducks, and an occasional Bald Eagle spotting. Upon arriving at the winery, which parallels the Potomac, invigorated paddlers chill out lakeside swirling, sniffing and sipping six savory wines, such as crowd-pleasing Viogner, Chardonnay, Rose´ and Charval paired with artisan cheeses. The day wraps up on the winery´s meticulously manicured 475-acre farm savoring live music under the starry night.
Offering a duo of options, on weekends May through October, paddlers can choose a Sunday paddle and wine tour that starts at 11:00 am, or Saturday paddle, wine and concert trip that begins at 2:30pm. The live music jams from 6:00-9:30 pm. Wine and food is available for purchase and Tarara extends River & Trail guests a 5% discount for purchases of 3-11 bottles and 15% off for purchases of a case (12 bottles) or more. Private tours are available for groups.
“We wanted to create a fun, relaxing trip that let´s people unplug while enjoying the serene natural beauty and the delicious wines being crafted from the surrounding land,” says Natasha Baihly, who runs River & Trail with her father Lee Baihly and other family members.
No prior paddling experience is needed to participate in the tour. River and Trail provides the guide/interpreter, gear, boat and PFD, as well as a thorough list of “what to bring” list of recommendations.
