Oenophiles will take special pleasure in the Wine and Food experience, which offers access to the vineyard’s highest-quality reserve wines paired with food prepared by the executive chef.
“You taste the wine, take a bite of the food, and then take another sip of the wine to see how it’s changed the taste and aroma of the food,” says Marketing Manager Lindsey Navin. “It’s a really elevated and special experience for people looking to learn more about the wine-making process and who are more familiar with wine.”
An elevated culinary experience continues over at the Farmhouse, the vineyard’s cozy on-site bed-and-breakfast. Wine-paired 4-course dinners are offered Tuesdays through Sundays, with a focus on local farm-to-table cuisines. You are also treated to breakfast every day, a complimentary bottle of wine, and a nightly wine hour with small bites.
And for those looking for a true winery getaway, the Farmhouse offers 4-day retreats throughout the year. While each retreat varies slightly, they all include yoga, a cooking class, hiking, and cellar and vineyard tours.
“You can make of them what you want. It’s focused on being an overall getaway from it all and a way to reconnect to yourself. We want you to have a great time and enjoy all the good things about life,” says Navin.
Room rates at the Farmhouse at Veritas range from $235 to $295.
Wine to try: 2019 Veritas Reserve, a red that Navin calls “very Virginia and very much reflective of [our winemaker’s] winemaking.”
