Description: Located within Salamander Resort and Spa and open to the public. Small plates of Piedmont-inspired cuisine are paired to the selection of both featured Virginia wines and international selections, then served throughout the day and evening. Whether you enjoy wine by the glass or as a tasting flight as you converse with the visiting winemakers, you will leave our Gold Cup Wine Bar with a much better understanding of Virginia and Middleburg wine country history and why it has earned its place among best wine regions in the US.

“Lovely spot, well-prepared food, attentive service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

We recently visited Gold Cup Wine Bar as part of Greater DC's restaurant week. We lingered over a leisurely Saturday lunch and enjoyed a flight of wines with our lunch Kudos to the chef for choosing local rock fish for the prix fixe entree, and greater kudos for allowing a substitution because of a seafood allergy. Everything was just lovely, comfortable and relaxing, exactly what you want from a resort restaurant. We'll definitely be back.

“Better than downtown Middleburg options, by far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Middleburg downtown restaurants are notoriously average and overpriced, with little effort put into the atmosphere. This is the opposite of that: gorgeous atmosphere, beautiful outdoor patio seating and 5 star casual food at 3 star prices (this is Salamander's "casual" eatery option, so prices appear to be kept artifically low even though food is from a 5 star kitchen!). Best crabcakes I know of, anywhere -- even the sushi was ridiculous and a bargain to boot. Self-park for free and all-in this is a steal, and only 1/4 mile from downtown.

“Terrible service. Food nothing special.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Poor service and food was served with no care. Flank steak basically thrown on a plate over shoestring fries but were 100% frozen french fries.

“Excellent chefs salad and cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

My husband and I both had the chefs salad here, it was delicious and plenty filling, we weren't able to finish ours. The salad was well spiced. Cocktails - my husband had his usual, bourbon on the rocks, and I tried "The Parlay," one of their signature cocktails. Their pour is quite generous! The Parlay was Grey Goos Vodka, Agave Nectar, Basil Leaves, and Line Juice...very refreshing and light, perfect a summer day in Middleburg, sitting outdoors on the patio.
