We had been there before and wanted to visit again. We drove up to the building and the building was closed. One of the employees at Copper Fox distillery said the owner closed the building. He wasn't sure where they relocated to.

Great place to see and buy local art from pottery to photography. A nice restaurant located inside and antique store and whiskey distillery nearby. Fun destination to hit on your travels around rural Virginia.

Dear "Love to Travel". Thank you for your nice review. I hope you enjoyed our two new art shows. Please come back in spring, when the dogwoods and the redbuds will be blooming; it is Rappahannock at its best!
