SALISBURY MILLS, NY _ The Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast is offering guests the chance to drink and dine responsibly this Spring with its White Glove Wine Getaway. Now guests traveling in the area for the annual Shawangunk Wine Trail Pasta Primo Vino event may sip and savor regional wines and pasta dishes at up to 14 wineries and leave the driving to their designated chauffeur. Pasta Primo Vino takes place April 12-13, 2014.
“Every year we see a lot of guests excited about Shawangunk Wine Trail but unable to finish their trek,” said Dena Finneran, who co-owns the award-winning country inn with her husband John. “This time we’re creating a getaway for adults who want to sample wine at all the wineries while leaving the driving to someone else.”
Guests who reserve the White Glove Wine Getaway will begin their day shortly after breakfast. A pre-planned itinerary – chosen to maximize the number of winery visits each day will begin at a nearby winery where they’ll each receive a souvenir wine glass, then they’re off – in groups of eight to 10 people in a limo from winery-to-winery, complete with a cooler stocked with refreshments. Every winery will have sampling of four handcrafted regional wines accompanied by a delicious pasta dish, courtesy of Barilla Pasta.
“Pasta Primo Vino is such a spectacular event,” said Randy Maduras, Executive Director of the Shawangunk Wine Trail. “It’s a special way to usher in the Spring, especially this year after so much snow.”
