End-of-Summer Events at Chateau Morrisette Winery

>> Tuesday, August 10, 2010

As summer is winding down, take time for one last getaway to the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwest Virginia. We know that Chateau Morrisette Winery is a favorite place for many of our guests to visit all year long. It is one of our favorite places to! To celebrate the last of those long summer days, the winery staff has planned some wonderful events at the winery for September.

On Labor Day weekend, the winery is in full swing with a movie on the lawn and extra hours for dining in their fabulous restaurant. Here are the details.
  • September 4 - Cinema on the Lawn - Presenting a silver screen classic, "Rear Window," starring James Stewart and Grace Kelly, on the restaurant lawn. Once the sun sets, settle back in your chair with a big blanket and watch a classic on the big screen. Food and wine available. At $5 per person, this is a cheap date and very romantic! Bring your own seating. Movie starts at 8:30 p.m. Picnics, coolers or outside food and drinks are not permitted.
  • September 6 - Labor Day - The Chateau Morrisette® Restaurant will be open on Labor Day from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. The Winery and Gifts Shop will be open from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and tours will be held at 11 a.m., 1 and 3 p.m.
What a great end-of-summer treat. A weekend getaway to VA's Blue Ridge Mountains, a luxurious stay at the Mountain Rose Inn, and dinner and a movie at Chateau Morrisette!

On September 11 & 12, come experience the Wine Tour & Progressive Pairing along the Mountain Road Wine Experience. Chateau Morrisette, Villa Appalachia, Blacksnake Meadery, AmRhein Wine Cellars, and Foggy Ridge Cider collaborate to present a food and drink progressive pairing. Travel with directions to each site for selected food and beverage pairings enhanced by expert advice on flavor combinations. Make reservations for that weekend at the Mountain Rose, and we will purchase your tickets for you!

So before the last rays of summer disappear, treat yourself to cool mountain air, delicious food, VA wines, and a weekend of relaxation and peace at the Inn.

Happy End of Summer to You!
