Visiting In-Laws

you love your in-laws, but sometimes they can drive you up a wall.  They’re in town for 3 days - today is day 3, and you are starting to go insane.  You need to get away fast, so you devise a crafty plan: “why don’t we all go wine tasting today” you suggest…
 


 

Saturday 8/25

11:30am

Arrive at Shadow Springs with your extended family.  While your in-laws are distracted by all our fun gift stuff, tell everyone that you’re getting a call - it’s your boss so you better take it. After a few minutes of mumbling, tell everyone that there is an urgent problem at work which requires your attention. Tell them to go on tasting without you, that you’ll work from Chuck’s office and catch up with them later. Before they have a chance to protest, turn away and yell something into the phone.  You did it, you’ve escaped.

12:00pm

Sneak outside, where your buddy is waiting in his car and head over over to WRC Distillery for the 12pm tour & tasting.  Lucky for you, our NC distillery lobbyists managed to add a rider onto the 2017 Brunch Bill that will let you purchase up to five bottles per year from us directly.  You may need more than just one to get through tonight!

1:00pm

Time for lunch.  Odds are, your unsuspecting in-laws are over at the Shilo General Store eating lunch and admiring the beautiful Amish furniture.  You should probably just grab a sandwich from the local Subway.

1:30pm

Continue your vacation by circling back to Shadow Springs, where you and your friend can take a load off and drink some wine slushies in peace.  Pro tip: ask for a mixture of the two flavors on tap.

3:30pm

It’s time to say goodbye to your friend and rejoin the rest of your family over at Windsor Run. But the world looks a little brighter now, and you’re ready to tackle the final evening before your in-laws leave town tomorrow morning.
