Create the Memory of an Experience
We would like to make your stay with us truly relaxing and memorable. If you’re looking for something extra, consider adding one of the following add-on packages to your stay. Please add to your reservation when you book on-line, or call or email the innkeeper to reserve your package: 434-964-1462 or email@example.com.
Winequest95PLUS is an option for guests at Cedar Spring Inn to participate in one of the few true wine education activities in the Monticello Viticultural Area. From an overview of wine growing in Virginia to how to determine a winemaker’s style, you will be given tools, tips and tailored tastings to help you define YOUR OWN wine palette.
Guests participating in the Winequest95PLUS day-long tutorial events will receive a serious but fun tasting experience and education. You will leave with the keys to deliver a professional tasting review of any wine anywhere.
Because Winequest95PLUS events begin after breakfast and continue until (or through) dinner, this package is only available to guests staying at least two nights, and is being offered to a maximum of three couples at a time. Winequest95PLUS is not available December through March.
Cost of this educational wine tasting experience is $195/person which includes a Wine Ride to two or three local wineries with a curated tasting at each, a picnic lunch, a blind tasting back at Cedar Spring Inn focusing on one varietal, and Charcuterie following the blind tasting. You will also receive a complimentary copy of De Long’s “Wine Tasting Notebook” and of “Wine Tasting: A Comprehensive Guide” by M. Charles McBee. (Wine Tasting Fees at the wineries visited are extra.)
For more information, check out the Winequest95PLUS page on our website.
