TRIP: Cobblestones, Scones & Valentino
July 30, 2019 –
Our cultural tour of Long Grove, High Tea with Gerri, and a wine appreciation seminar at Valentino Vineyards will have you raising eyebrows, pinkies and toasts all in one day! First, we’ll learn about Long Grove’s rich history from a docent during a 45-minute presentation featuring stories of local scandals, ties to Hollywood, a macabre tale or two and the town’s role during Prohibition. Lunch will be a unique experience where the hostess Gerri,dressed in Victorian attire, serves an authentic English High Tea including gourmet sandwiches, scones, seasonal indulgences, petite pastries, and of course, her freshly brewed signature tea served in antique china. We will have time to shop before travel to Valentino Vineyards & Winery for a tour, tasting and seminar. The fee includes round-trip motor coach transportation, tours, tastings and lunch.
