How is it that February, the shortest month of the year, tends to drag on the longest?  With the fervor of Christmas over, we tend to just trudge through February counting the days until Spring.

That is unless you’re a guest of the Iris Inn. Then February is the month you look forward to!

The Iris Inn’s Winter Wine Weekend is a favorite among guests. Not only does it add sparkle to mid-winter, but it’s also a lot of fun for both the wine enthusiast and those wanting to learn more about wines.

This year’s dates are February 7-9, 2020, so mark your calendars. We only have room for 16 couples per event and demand is great. So don’t delay in making your reservations.

Now, let’s take a look at all the fun you’ll have this year.

Winter Wine Weekend Schedule 

Friday Night

Wine expert and our weekend host, Marc Suspic of Wine Living, will be on hand all weekend, starting with our meet and greet upon your arrival. He’ll be there to suggest the perfect wines to pair with our delicious appetizers and meal:

  • Sparkling wine and charcuterie board
  • Light dinner, buffet style with homemade pizza & salad

We accommodate all dietary restrictions.

Sit in front of a roaring fire while enjoying food, fun, and new friends until you’re ready for bed!

Saturday Lunch

Get ready! Because it’s a fun day centered around our love for good food and wine. And that’s where Marc takes center stage. As usual, he’s going to challenge everything you know about wine!

Lunch will be:

  • Build-your-own taco buffet bar
  • Spanish wine selection
  • Fun and games

We accommodate all dietary restrictions.

Count on having a generous helping of fun and entertainment with your meal! After lunch, take advantage of the beautiful mountain surroundings of the Inn. Go for a walk or take a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Or pair up with some of the other couples, and enjoy a leisurely afternoon around the Inn.

Saturday Dinner

Oh, my! Nothing calls for wine more than a four-course dinner, and that’s exactly what we’re cooking up, a four-course Greek feast:

  • Hors d’oeuvres
  • Greek salad 
  • Main course 
  • Dessert

We accommodate all dietary restrictions.

After dinner, if you so choose, bring your favorite bottle of wine and share. This is a fun way to learn about other wines and enjoy a wide variety at the same time.

Can you think of a better way to beat the winter doldrums? We can’t. If you like meeting other couples who enjoy good food and good wine, reserve your Winter Wine Weekend date now!

So grab a reservation now. Early bird pricing is just $510.80 per couple, (regularly $550.80) plus your lodging.

Everybody needs a game plan for staving off the after-holiday doldrums, and a Winter Wine Weekend is a fine plan indeed!
