My wife and I actually visited the vignard three times recently. We were with friends and family. Lunch menu is excellent, wines great, service excellent as well. All three time we had a very pleasant time. The environment is great.

This was my husband and my third time here, this time to attend the Oyster Festival. While I thought the oysters were a tad price-y, the staff was terrific, attentive and fast and I am over the top with their pale rose wine.

Nothing is super close, but things aren't too far, either. I wouldn't call this a destination that's really about shopping, though the Noon Whistle Pottery in Stanardsville really is amazing if you like artisanal crafts... More
