Here at the Inn, we are always pleased to hear that our guests are planning a weekend that includes time spent at the Chateau Morrisette. They always return with wonderful stories of the great time they had visiting this VA winery.
The Chateau Morrisette has 2 wonderful weekend events on their calendar. If you are in the area, check one or both of them out.
Pet Adoption Day - Sun, Sept. 11 – 11:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.
Where else but Chateau Morrisette can you drink wine and listen to live music while you pick out a new pet? Dozens of dogs and cats will be at the winery's courtyard looking for new homes during their 5th annual Pet Adoption Day. The hard-working folks at the Floyd County Humane Society will be on hand to help you pick out the perfect companion, and to aid you through the adoption process. They'll also take care of all necessary tests, shots, and grooming--all you need to bring is an open heart!
Wine & Cheese: The Perfect Pair - Sat, Sept. 17 – 4:00 P.M. to 5:30 P.M.
When it comes to wine and cheese pairing, the savvy host need only know a few basic truths to create crowd-pleasing flavor combinations. Whether it's pairing sweet or fruity white wines with mild cheeses or dry reds with boldly flavored cheeses; learn how to expertly match wines with cheeses of all kinds at the Chateau's Fall Wine and Cheese Tasting. Let your tastebuds--and their pairing expert--be your guide as you learn the dos and don'ts of this classic duo. $18 per person includes wine, cheese and pairing information. Reservations and non-refundable pre-payment are required, as space is limited. Call 540.593.2865 for reservations.
Happy Weekend Getaway Planning!
