Veritas Vineyards and Winery Christmas Caroling Party

carolingIf you’ve come to stay with us, or simply checked out our website, you may have noticed a trend. We are all about the wine, particularly wine from local vineyards. I love Veritas Vineyards and Winery.  With a high caliber wine selection, beautiful scenery, and cozy atmosphere, it’s a prime destination to visit near our inn.  A lot of guests wonder if area wineries and vineyards will be closed during the winter months.  No way!  Not only is that not the case, but many host lovely holiday events, like Veritas’ Christmas Caroling Party. Friday, December 9th, the vineyard and winery will host extended hours during which you can enjoy mulled wine, local beer and cider, desserts, cheese and charcuterie plates, and of course, Veritas wines. Area university, UVA’s a cappella group, The Virginia Sil’hooettes, will put on a special Christmas caroling singalong performance.  There is no entry fee and no reservation required, so don’t miss this event!  Here’s a video of The Virginia Sil’hooettes performing Christmas songs with another area a cappella group.  Feel free to listen to it on repeat while you get in the holiday spirit. Veritas’ normal tasting hours are Monday-Friday 9:30-5:30, and Saturday-Sunday 11:00-5:00.   Like many area wineries, they are only closed Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. For more information about area vineyards and wineries, check out our Shenandoah Vacation Guide.  And if your thirst for winter wine activities is as insatiable as ours, look into our upcoming Wine Weekends. Don’t forget to book a room here at the Iris Inn.  We look forward to having you!
