Blenheim, Jefferson Vineyards, Castle Hill Cidery and Keswick Vineyards are pleased to announce the launch of the Winter Wonderland passport program, which runs up until April 1st 2012.
The concept of this marketing effort is simple, purchase a passport at one winery and taste for free at the others. This is a wonderful opportunity for customers who plan on making a day out of visiting and tasting some fantastic Virginia wines and ciders.
Available for $15 at any of the participating wineries, this card saves you $10 on the normal tasting room fees you would incur.
I think it is important to promote other wineries and businesses within the State and I have known Kirsty [winemaker for Blenheim] and Andy [winemaker for Jefferson] for a long time and am a huge admirer of the wines they have been producing. We are also excited that Castle Hill Cidery has come on board and Stuart [Cider Maker] is doing some wonderful things and everyone should go and taste their products in what is a beautiful tasting room.
All the wineries are within about 20-30 minutes driving distance, so visiting each in a single day is easily doable. Stop in at Keswick Hall or the Clifton Inn for lunch; take in Monticello [about a mile from Jefferson Vineyards] to break things up.
visit us all on one day or take your time, just bring your passport with you and your tasting will be complimentary upon your arrival.
I can promise you, having these wines and ciders recently that you will not be disappointed
