Winvian Farm and Lime Rock Race Track Partner to Launch Women at the Wheel Retreat

 

Ladies, Start Your Engines....

 


Winvian Farm, the AAA Five-Diamond hotel in Connecticut's Litchfield Hills, has officially declared 2018 the Year of the Woman, launching the Women at the Wheel program, beginning April 21. Women at the Wheel will showcase a partnership between Winvian Farm and the nearby Lime Rock Park race track in Lakeville. The two-day retreat will include a private, half-day race car driving lesson with one of Lime Rock’s top instructors, most of whom have coached some of the world’s champion racecar drivers.

After a day on the race track, women can enjoy the luxury amenities at the Relais & Chateaux hotel. Guests may select body and facial treatments at the 5,000-square-foot spa, eat in Winvian Farm's award-winning restaurant, relax poolside, or go hiking through the neighboring White Memorial Conservation Center.

Included in the two-day retreat are accommodations in one of Winvian Farm’s 19 accommodations (18 of which are private cottages), one three-course dinner for two, a bottle of champagne upon arrival, and one half-day private racing lesson at Lime Rock Park.
