You know that spring is almost here in the Shenandoah Valley when the Blue Ridge Point to Point race is just around the corner. No pun intended says Winey! This is a great race that will be held at Woodley Farm, in the beautiful Virginia countryside, just a few miles up the road from L’Auberge Provencale, bed and breakfast. Winey and Cheesey will be there with a tail gate picnic to watch the beautiful horses and the beautiful people here in Clarke County, Va. If you want to attend the race we still have a few rooms available and we will throw in the picnic for two! The races are on March 12, 2011, so bring some cash for the side bet (only kidding!) Winey and Cheesey think our bed and breakfast is the perfect place to unwind after the races. Enjoy a sumptuous meal in our romantic dining room and a fine bottle of wine to mellow out even the most active DC foodies after all that fresh country air!
We will also be celebrating Virginia Wine Week and are offering “Love by the Glass”, for all those wine lover’s out there. L’Auberge Provencale’s romantic restaurant will be featuring our long time favorite Virginia vineyards and some new ones we discovered at the Governor’s Wine Awards last evening for the week of March 18-27th! Wine lovers now have another good reason to come out and enjoy L’Auberge Provencale. The Shenandoah Valley and other areas of Virginia are producing some really good wines these days. Your going to love them! Winey and Cheesey are loving them and you will too. While you are visiting you can enjoy the culture, local history and of course, local food and local wine.
Spring also has us looking at all those goodies to come out of the garden and forests of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Fresh fiddleheads, morels, French breakfast radishes, mache…yumm, yumm. You don’t want to miss this, so we hope to see you soon at the L’Auberge Provencale, country inn and restaurant. Don’t forget we are only just a short drive from Washington, D.C. And we know you are ready after this winter to get out of the city and enjoy country comfort!
