“May your troubles be less and your blessings be more and nothing but happiness come through your door”. This is an Irish blessing that truly epitomize what it means to celebrate St Patty’s Day today. Lighthearted merriment, music, parades, dancing, and a whole lot of green flood the streets every year on March 17th to pay homage the patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. But that’s not the only way to celebrate this festive holiday.
This year, escape from the city to the quiet elegance of Veramar Vineyard, where you can toast the luck of the Irish with a one-of-a-kind St Patty’s Day celebration in Virginia.
