Located just outside of River's Rest, not far from the drawbridge, Cheladore Farms is a private vineyard operated by the Lorekeepers of Silverwood Manor. In years with a good grape harvest, it is the site of the Wine Festival. Cheladore Farms has a tasting room and kitchen that are opened to the public during the festival. A small area of the vineyard is also opened and a giant vat, for smashing grapes, is located nearby.
