Wintergreen Mountain – Nelson County, Virginia
With just a hint of winter in the air, people enjoyed a casual ride and stroll on the mountain at Wintergreen as part of Wintergreen Resort’s Holiday Home & Wine Tour 2008. It’s the inaugural event. Folks on the tour were treated to Blue Ridge Mountain views providing a stunning backdrop to five beautifully decorated homes, including the grand finale at the nine-bedroom Blue Ridge Getaway.

Interior designers and artists from the region transformed each home with a holiday flair, based on creative themes indicative of the resort. The festivities culminate in the final home with tastings of Nelson County wines, appetizers and holiday music.

Shuttles take people on the tour from home to home as part of the event.
