Although 2020 hasn’t been the year we all expected, a little sunshine came out of it. 7C’s Winery & Meadery in Walnut Grove, Missouri is hosting its first sunflower experience right next to the winery. 

7C's Winery Sunflower Experience allows you to stroll through the 2.5-acre field and take pictures at several open spaces. It is not a maze, but rather a path cut straight through the field to make the walk a little easier. Tickets are $5 per adult (13 and older) and children 12 and under are free! Dates range from August 20-September 7. Later in the year, they will offer a U-Pick season where you'll be able to take home even more sunflowers!

After you walk, head inside to enjoy a glass of wine or mead that suits your taste palette. 

If you’re interested in the experience, here are a few things you need to know.
