A Taste of Vermont
March 21st – 23rd – SOLD OUT
Vermont is known for its farm to table restaurants … for being a mecca for craft-brewers … for being the #1 manufacturer of maple syrup in the United States and is also known worldwide for their cheese, chocolate and wine!
Join PRIME TIME™ for ‘A Taste of Vermont’ on March 21st – 23rd. We’ll enjoy great food and drink along with authentic attractions, amazing history and picturesque views making this a unique and unforgettable experience with memories you’ll cherish forever!
Day 1: Our unique Northern journey begins in Cabot Vermont as we tour the world renowned Cabot Creamery. Here, we’ll visit their working plant where the “Best Cheddar in the World” begins. After spending some time nibbling on Cabot cheeses, we will next stop at Cold Hollow Cider Mill – the largest cider mill in New England; recently featured in Gourmet Magazine for their famous cider doughnuts! There will be time here to pick up some of those delicious donuts as well as many other Vermont’s specialty items. Right next door is the Boyden Valley Winery, where you can learn about the ‘vine-to-wine’ process and enjoy a wine and hard cider tasting.
Next, we’ll take the short drive to Stowe where our 4 star accommodations are provided at the Trapp Family Lodge – this unique, alpine-style resort is owned by the same von Trapp family that inspired ‘The Sound of Music’. It features Austrian-inspired architecture and offers superb mountain views, old-world comforts and impeccable service. Our dinner this evening will be served in their beautiful main dining room (included).
Day 2: After breakfast (included), we’ll head over to Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks in Montpelier. With 200 years and 8 generations of maple experience, the Morse family will outline the ‘tree-to-table’ process of turning watery, tasteless sap into rich and delicious maple syrup. We’ll also be treated to ‘Sugar on Snow’ – a traditional Vermont staple made with hot maple syrup.
Next, we’ll head over to Idletyme Brewing Company; one of the region’s premier micro-breweries where we’ll enjoy lunch (included) and partake in their ‘brew-ski flight’ (a six piece-sampler of seasonal and flagship brews served on a ski) while learning more about this unique artisanal microbrewery. After lunch, we’ll meet up with Kevin Lendway, aka Mr. Vermont who will board our motorcoach to provide a guided tour of Stowe as we head back to our beautiful lodge. Tonight, we’ll enjoy a von Trapp history tour and learn the fascinating story of the family’s journey from Austria to Stowe, VT as well as how Maria’s autobiography inspired the play and movie ‘The Sound of Music’. Tonight’s dinner is served family-style in the von Trapp Bierhall (included).
Day 3: After a leisurely breakfast (included) and check out, we’ll begin our journey home however; our ‘Taste of Vermont’ is not over yet! En route, we’ll take a delicious tour of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory and stop in for a visit at the timeless and always overflowing Vermont Country Store.
