During the Winter off-season we have lots of room at the tasting bars, and more importantly, are relaxed and re-energized from the hectic long working hours of the Fall harvest – ready to spend some quality time with visitors! So we are really excited about this: The Great Virginia Wine Country Travel Auction!
Dozens of Virginia wineries and locally-owned lodgings have put together travel packages, one-of-a-kind experiences, and great “buy-it-now” deals to help you experience Wine Country’s slower season.
The all-online Auction goes live on February 3 and runs through February 10. Register now to be ready to bid! Some items will only be available for a few days, and most of the “buy-it-now” deals will sell out quickly. Monticello Appellation Wine Tours has a tour for two listed!
The Auction is organized by Nancy Bauer of Virginia Wine in My Pocket.com, who says, “We know that wine travel slows in the off-season, which can be a blessing and a curse for wineries. We started this Travel Auction project to encourage visitors from all over to come to Virginia and explore in the winter and spring. And wineries are having so much fun with it, coming up with great packages and experiences. We’re also really excited that a portion of the proceeds goes to support Virginia’s Winemakers Research Exchange and their work to enhance wine quality and economic profitability.”
