A number of wineries have plans for special tastings. Narmada has a weekend of activities culminating in the release of the 2009 MOM (The 2008 was a bronze award-winning wine in competition) . Veramar Vineyards lets Mom taste free! The Winery at La Grange has a winemaker’s dinner.
Restaurants often record this day as their busiest of the year. So making that reservation means NOW. Lots of Brunch menus. Here are a few possibilities: Lansdowne, Tuskie’s, and The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm which offers a Saturday and Sunday Brunch menu.
Gift shops and inns are ready to help with your purchase. The Boar’s Head Inn now has its specialty handmade chocolates ready for purchase in the gift shop.
