ANNUAL NEW YEAR'S EVE EVENT
Pricing for this event is $150/couple or $75/person, and will follow a different schedule from our other Wine & Dine Events.
We have combined two of our favorite events, to bring you New River Valley’s best New Year’s Event for 2014. For only $75/person you can ring in the New Year at Wilderness Adventure! This New Year’s Party will start off with a unique cocktail hour that is a little different than anything you’ve seen before. There will be stations around our elegantly rustic Main Lodge and at each station their will be a wine for you to taste, as well as a perfectly paired appetizer. Try all the stations and come back to your favorite. A complimentary full glass of wine is included during the cocktail hour.
After cocktail hour, everyone will be seated for a delicious plated meal paired with a versatile local wine. After the Bubbles & Sweets dessert course will be the dancing!
At midnight, visitors will be provided with party favors and a champagne toast for the countdown to 2014. As with all of our events, overnight accommodations and a full, hot breakfast are included in the price. New Year’s is a very popular event so make sure that you sign up quickly!

Defying the unanimous advice of government officials, land owners, and bankers to plant tobacco at Barboursville, Gianni Zonin — 6th generation heir to a family wine enterprise active since 1821 in the Veneto (Italy) — acquired this plantation in 1976 with the seemingly ridiculous expectation of creating a vineyard. Jefferson had attempted this, persistently into the 19th Century at Monticello (his plantation just 21 miles from Barboursville), failing to achieve a single harvest.
In 2006, on the occasion of celebrating the winery’s 30th anniversary as “setting the standard” for a region now populated by more than 100 vineyards, Gianni and Silvana Zonin opened a new wine museum at Barboursville, looking back upon centuries of Italian viticulture, and a barrel aging room for Octagon, where the history of their creation of an estate that gave birth to a new wine region is laid out upon the walls in illustrated chapters, culminating in the validation of Octagon, itself, as the crowning achievement of Virginia viticulture. These rooms are open to the public every day on the same schedule as the Tasting Room.
With an amazing selection from varietals to smooth blends Barboursville Vineyards has plenty of wines to suit even the pickiest of wine drinkers. More details about the wine selections and pairings coming soon!

Formerly AltaVista Vineyard’s & Winery, Altillo Vineyards is a small family-run vineyard and winery that specializes in limited production of finely crafted wines. While they may have a bit higher price tag it is for a good reason! Unlike many vineyards in Virginia, Altillo ensures that their grapes are from their own vineyard or supplemented from high quality grapes provided ONLY by Virginia growers. Just speaking with the father & son duo for a short time gives you a great deal of insight of the dedication this winery has to staying local and using quality products. You can find the father & son team selling their wines on the lookout up to Mountain Lake near Blacksburg on a sunny day, and at a variety of other events. Follow them on facebook to get updates on harvests, events and wines.
