Wine Tours From Wintergreen!

Let Wintergreen be your home base for exploring Virginia's wine country. The eastern slopes of the Blue Ridge and the rolling countryside offer the prefect environment for both wine production and vacationing!

We've partnered with Monticello Wine Tour and Coach Company to take all the guess work out of a beautiful day exploring Virginia wine country. Daily tours are a fun and social way to experience some of the area’s best wineries, breweries, and destinations with like minded individuals. Their team of professionals will provide the highest level of service in the area’s most modern fleet of Mercedes Sprinters and luxury Chevrolet Suburbans. Simply choose the tour that best suits your needs and they’ll take care of the rest.

Custom Private Wine Tour

3-4 Wineries/Breweries of Your Choice

3-4 STOPS • 5 HOUR MINIMUM • UP TO 14 PASSENGERS

Our average tours last a minimum of 5 hours, which allows time for stops at 3-4 different wineries and/or breweries depending on group size, but we are always more than happy to accommodate your travel schedule. Our drivers are carefully selected for their knowledge of the area’s beer and wine offerings and their dedication to the highest level of customer service. Each itinerary is fully customized based on your group size and requests. Kick back and relax! You’re in good hands.

Step 1 – Click below and reserve your vehicle based on the size of your group. This is the most important step as our vehicles sell out most weekends!

Wintergreen Wedding Showcase

Wedding season is almost upon us, and no matter what kind of style you are envisioning, the most important day of your life calls for a picture-perfect setting with precise planning.

The past weekend, we hosted a Wintergreen Wedding Showcase for our 2018 and 2019 brides and grooms to help them plan their big day. Our specialty is careful and thoughtful planning, and making the process easy and enjoyable for our amazing couples. We think the most relaxing way to plan a wedding is by spending time at the resort, enjoying everything we have to offer!

On Saturday, 26 couples arrived on the mountain and were treated to a Welcome Party. The entrance to Devils Grill sparkled with a dusting of surprise snow, while inside we kept warm with a variety of hors d'oeuvres, a slider station and beverage samplings. We even had fire pits and a s'mores station on the patio. Rhianon Ham, Wedding Coordinator, Michael Hammes, Director of Food and Beverage, and Robert Turner, Director of Banquets were all there, eager to get to know all the couples and give advice about their upcoming wedding weekends. But Saturday was just the warm up!

On Sunday, The Commonwealth Ballroom was transformed into a massive tasting event with different stations and displays for our guests to sample. They were able to dream up their perfect wedding menu as they made their way around the ballroom. Additionally, we had a variety of preferred local vendors on site to answer any and all questions that they had about their wedding weekend. The ballroom was dressed with custom lighting, beautiful florals, delicious cake and music playing and a variety of other vendors scattered throughout the ballroom and the ballroom lobby.  It was such a pleasure to spend time with our brides and grooms, and show them how wonderful we can make their special days.

If you're planning a special day and wish you could enjoy this kind of treatment, give Rhianon a call today! She can be reached at 434-325-8139, rham@wintergreenresort.com, or by filling out a request for proposal. Some dates remain for 2018 if you're on a shorter schedule, but we're also booking for 2019 and 2020 if you like to think farther ahead!
