Are you ready to reconnect with your partner?  Our popular Valentine’s Tour is now becoming a great way to get to know your loved one all over again!  Whether you’ve been together for 6 seconds, 6 months, 6 years, or 60 years… everyone has a lovely time!  Our 2020 Valentine’s tour included couples dating for a few months to a couple married 56 years!  Read on to see why Taste Winchester History is now making it a semi-regular occurrence!

DID YOU KNOW?   The “Virginia is for Lovers” advertising slogan was born in 1969 and celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2019!  And between pondering how inseparable that slogan has become in conjunction with the great Commonwealth of Virginia and the popularity of our Valentine’s Specialty Tours, we decided to make a “love connection”.  For 2020, and potentially moving forward, we will do one of these tours quarterly.  So for 2020, we are establishing dates in May, August, and November!  We will add those dates to the Specialty Tour Page very soon!

From (2019)

Virginia is For Lovers® was created in 1969, 50 years ago, and has become one of the most beloved and well-known slogans in the world. While it has meant a lot of different things to a lot of different people, one thing hasn’t changed – the LOVE.

So in celebration of over 50 Years of LOVE, we will share our love of food, drink, travel, history and so much more with you when you book our Virginia Lovers Specialty Tours.  Discover one of countless reasons why Virginia is for Lovers and fall in love with your partner and Winchester all over again.  Our hope is that your excitement for these tours will encourage us to keep it a quarterly specialty tour well into the future!

So what happens on this tour? We of course sample food from unexpected restaurants, learn some fun history, and we play a fun game to see how well you know your partner while you discover some interesting tidbits about them. It’s full of laughs, occasional unexpected surprises, and of course, champagne and chocolate to wrap things up in a nice, neat little bow.  A look back at the 2020 Valentine’s Tour…
