5 Things To Do During Quarantine
1. Picnic Outdoors. It doesn't have to be the Fourth of July to pack a picnic. See some fun recipes and picnic ideas here for recreating a vineyard picnic in your backyard.
2. Hike Locally. Read about the Nation's Longest "Marked Footpath" in Wine & Country Life and take a look at some of our area's hiking trails in our CharlottesvilleFamily's Bloom magazine.
4. Try A New Recipe. On our Wine & Country Life blog, Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyard shared a DIY Pizza Recipe with homemade dough included. Check it out, here.
3. Show Your Home & Garden Some Love. There's always something you want to try at your own home. Here is some spring cottage-style home and garden inspiration from last year's Historic Garden Tours.
