I’m a father of three rambunctious kids, ages 10, 7 and 3.   I love them to pieces, but after chasing them around all day, this worn-out daddy has been known to pour a glass of red wine and soak in a moment of peace and tranquility after they’ve gone to bed. 


That’s why I’m extremely excited about this new service being offered by Great Wolf Lodge called Wine Down Service.


Parents now have the ability to “wine down” with a nice bottle of wine, perfectly paired with either a savory or sweet culinary treat after a fun-filled day of play with the kids in the water park.  The evening Wine Down Service menu features top scoring wines from The Wine Group combined with tantalizing culinary treats to create a pairing that will truly entice your taste buds. 


And, the packages are reasonably priced, just $35 for a full bottle of wine paired with either a sweet or savory treat – and delivery is included!  It’s simple to order.  Just visit the guest services desk and a pack member will take your order and set-up a delivery time -- any time between 8-11pm.  Best of all, instead of knocking on your door and potentially waking the kiddos, Great Wolf Lodge will send you a text message prior to delivery so you can be at the door waiting.  


On the menu you will find four carefully curated pairings to choose from: 


Rekindle the Bonfire:  A romantic and classic pairing with a Great Wolf Lodge twist.  This package includes a bottle of Chloe Prosecco paired with luscious dark chocolate-covered strawberries marked with white chocolate paw prints.     


While the Pups Sleep, Chardonnay:  This tasty pairing featuring brie, dried apricots and crackers, which unlocks the apple and citrus flavors found in the Cupcake Chardonnay it is paired alongside. 


It’s Been A Fun-Filled Day, Time For Some Cabernet:  A platter of cured meats such as prosciutto and soppressata served with Mediterranean green and black olives comes accompanied by Concannon Cabernet Sauvignon, recognized by the editors of Wine Enthusiast magazine as a top choice.  


Kids Snoring, More Pinot Noir-ing:  Decadent chocolate truffles served with bite-sized dark chocolate morsels brings to life the luxurious, fruit-forward flavor and velvety texture of Love Noir, a Pinot Noir that has burst onto the wine scene with high acclaim. 


The service will launch at the Great Wolf Lodge in Williamsburg and Grapevine after Memorial Day weekend, with plans to expand the service to additional resorts later this year.


We hope you enjoy our new Wine Down Service. I know this is a treat my wife and I plan to enjoy on our next getaway to Great Wolf Lodge!
