New for 2021

"Doggie Dollars"

We are trying a brand new, first of it's kind, format for the festival this year to help with Covid restrictions! We will no longer have a "Wine Tasting Ticket". What we will now offer is General Admission tickets, without wine tastings included. BUT we will be giving everyone with a GA ticket a festival glass (if over 21) and 10 "Doggie Dollars" that will be good for use at the festival that day!

Each "Doggie Dollar" will be good for one of two things

$2 off ANY purchase at the Wineries    or    $1 off a $10 purchase at ANY vendor.

Peaks of Otter Winery will be offering Wine Tastings for $2 at the festival We hope all the other wineries will offer tastings at $2 each, but everyone gets to set their own prices. A "Doggie Dollar" may be redeemed for $2 off any purchase of merchandise or anything the wineries have for sale, including these $2 tastings. If you use all of your "Doggie Dollars" up, you can taste wines at the wineries by paying for the tasting. All tastings fees must be paid by you to the wineries under this festival model, since they are not included with your gate ticket.


The theory is that this should help limit crowds and lines at tasting booths, while still allowing you the option to taste everything at the festival at least once, if you wish! And still have some "Doggie Dollars" leftover to use at the food and craft vendors and wineries. If you're a nondrinker or designated driver (Thank You DDs!) then you will be able to use them at any of the many vendors at the festival!


So buy a general admission ticket for $20 and get up to $20 in savings while you are at the festival!! This is a deal that's hard to beat!


Our goal for this year is to be as "Covid Friendly" as possible and we are trying to mitigate any risks we can foresee.

Come join us on the gracious grounds of Johnson's Orchards located in scenic accessible Bedford, VA for the 16th Annual Horse & Hound Wine Festival!


Please note:
No coolers or other beverages will be allowed. We request, as respect to our vendors, that no outside food, beverages or coolers be brought to festival.


Part of the proceeds will go to the following:
