Join a fun OLLI group for another wine trip. We return to the Virginia countryside to see a new set of wineries. The tasting experience begins at Boxwood Winery in Middleburg, established by John Kent Cook, former owner and president of the Washington Redskins. Boxwood makes premium red and white wines in the Bordeaux tradition. The tour continues with a seated lunch at the renowned Field and Main restaurant in Marshall. The prix fixe lunch includes three courses served family style, plus tea or coffee. After a short drive to Upperville, the tour concludes with a visit to Slater Run Vineyards, a French-wine-themed solar-powered winery representing a continuing 300-year farming tradition along Goose Creek. An all-inclusive fee of $134, covering transportation costs, lunch, wine tastings, and bus drive gratuity is payable to OLLI at
the time of registration. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is limited, so sign up today! The bus will leave promptly at 10:00 a.m. from Fair Oaks Mall, Lot 57, which is outside the circular road in front of ManTech Corporation. Please be on the bus no later than 9:45. Estimated time of return to Fair Oaks is 4:30.
