Must, bid the Morn awake! Sad Winter now declines, Each bird doth choose a mate; This day’s Saint Valentine’s. For that good bishop’s sake Get up and let us see What beauty it shall be That Fortune us assigns.
–Michael DraytonValentine’s Day is only a couple weeks away, and if your significant other is tired of the run-of-the-mill card and chocolate combination, then maybe it’s time to do something a bit different this year: Step 1: Book your cabin, cottage, or suite at the Iris Inn Bed & Breakfast, and add an Extra Touch to make an already-romantic stay absolutely perfect. Step 2: Make your reservation for Veritas Vineyard and Winery’s Valentine’s Day Winemaker’s Dinner. Veritas’ upcoming Valentine’s Day Winemaker’s Dinner will feature a five-course meal (and each course will be paired with its own wine!) music, and dancing. Savor the marinated butternut squash, linguini with sliced black truffles, and grilled petit filet Mignon. Delight in vanilla and chocolate gelato, layered with cherries and sliced almonds and surrounded by dark chocolate. Finish off every rich bite with a sip of perfectly paired wine. The Winemaker’s Dinner takes place on Saturday, February 14, 2015, from 7 P.M. to 11 P.M. in the winery’s Saddleback Hall. Reservations are open, so be sure to make yours now! The Iris Inn is ready to make your Valentine’s Day perfectly romantic, and you have the option of amping up your getaway with a fantastic dinner at an award-winning Virginia winery. We look forward to seeing you!
