Join us on a guided hike of Seven Bends State Park, less than a mile from the entrance to Muse Vineyards guided by David V. Brotman, Executive Director of the Friends of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River.

Tickets are FREE, but required. Register HERE.

The hike will be about 2 hours in length, mostly in shade, and of easy to moderate difficulty. (There are some moderately steep hills.) The group will stay together for a wide range of nature interpretations and will see a few areas of historical and cultural significance. We recommend you wear hiking shoes and bring water. We will be safe distancing among groups.

Your guide will be David V. Brotman, Executive Director of the Friends of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River, with whom we are proud to partner on this program. Their mission is to keep the North Fork of the Shenandoah River clean, healthy, and beautiful through advocacy, community action, education, and science. David has broad experience in environmental fieldwork, business, conflict resolution, and education. Times spent in the Shenandoah Valley as a boy and young man — camping, hiking, fishing, and canoeing — are the very roots of his environmental interests and his love of nature. David is a natural public educator and has taught all age groups in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings. Subjects have included Chesapeake Bay ecology, Wild Edibles, and many more. In Yellowstone NP, he trained citizen scientists in field methods.

Comedy at Muse Vineyards

Tickets ARE REQUIRED! Purchase them HERE.

Mike Travers and Derrick Knopsnyder are two comedians from Pittsburgh PA who have been traveling around performing their show at wineries across the country since 2018.

Their show is a mix of stand up and crowd work, which is sure to keep the audience engaged and laughing the entire night. The combination of crowd work and stand up is a unique mix that these two do so well and what’s given them glowing reviews from wineries and audiences all over the United States.

The two have been working together since 2018 but prior to that, they’ve shared the stage with some of comedy’s greatest names like John Mulaney, Bo Burnham, Chris Porter, Jim Breuer, Jon Lovitz, and Rob Schneider just to name a few. They’ve performed at countless fire halls, VFW’s, wineries, theaters, farms – literally anywhere there is an audience and a microphone!

They found one underlying thing – the smaller the town, the better the show and so the two set off to do comedy in small towns, see the country, and drink in the middle of nowhere, which is what this show is all about! So come on out and drink and laugh with them!

Tickets ARE REQUIRED for this event, please purchase tickets HERE. Seating on the deck begins at 6:30 pm, if you plan to have dinner with us, please be sure to place your order before 7:30 pm so you don’t miss anything!

Outside food is not permitted in the Tasting Room, Terrace, or on the Deck. Outside alcohol is not permitted anywhere on the property by Virginia state law.
