Wine and Jazz Festival Returns to Snowshoe

By on June 6, 2018

Wine and Jazz Snowshoe WVOh, sweet summer children, your months have finally come! So, it’s time to celebrate the season at the Snowshoe Mountain Wine and Jazz Festival. A mere fifteen-hundred minutes west of the nation’s capital sits an augustly alpine oasis, Snowshoe Mountain. There, the air is crisp and the atmosphere restorative. In Snowshoe WV, trees meditate, wildflowers sway and bunnies bound; it’s a quixotic bucolic getaway.

Yearly, during West Virginia’s profligate display of organic summer splendor, Snowshoe serves as stage to one of the region’s most enjoyable fetes, the Taste of the Mountain Wine and Jazz Festival. Work-worn guests arrive on the evening of Friday, June 15th; on Sunday the 17th, they checkout rested and ready to win the week.

This year’s program is a tour de force featuring wine pairing opportunities, a grand tasting event and stellar musical performances. Think of it as Coachella for the mid-Atlantic wine-and-cheese set.

This year’s program kicks off at 7:00pm on Friday, June 15th, with a “wine pairing experience.” Project Natale, a 30-year-seasoned jazz quartet, will play you into the night. Feel like cutting a rug? Shed your subdued thing and shake your groove thing!Wine and Jazz Snowshoe WV

The next morning, leisurely awake and take your pick of breakfast options. During the day, book a massage, go for a hike or dive into a book on your balcony. But make it to Skidder Slope by 4:00pm for some smooth jazz, gourmet food samplings, and, of course, plenty of good wine — barefoot kangaroos need not apply. (Are you sure you’re not in Verbier right now? Are you positive that isn’t Prince William doing “the dad shuffle” on the dance floor?)

On Saturday, between 3:30pm and 5:15pm, adult contemporary artists Shane Meade and the Sound will kick off the day’s dulcet sets. Self-described as “soul-infused folk rock, with a splash of jazz and mountain funk,” Shane Meade and company always delight.

Wine and Jazz Snowshoe WVThen, at 5:30pm, Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., a homegrown West Virginian and America’s Got Talent winner, will take the stage and proceed to rock your audible socks. At 9:45pm, Shane Meade and crew come back for a late night acoustic set.

On Sunday, awake and head to the al fresco brunch before checking out, hopping in the car, and cruising back home, refreshed and rejuvenated.

Does that sound like a plan? Go here to snatch up your tickets for the Snowshoe Wine and Jazz Festival. Treat yourselves to a tranquil, gorgeous getaway; because yes, you do deserve it.
