“Stunning venue for fall wedding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

Just attended a beautiful wedding at this lovely winery about 20 minutes from Charlottesville. Pippin Hill's large covered patio provides a wonderful place to sit down, enjoy some wine, and and appreciate the backdrop of the Blue Ridge mountains. For weddings, they have a large 'bridal loft', a salon for the girls to relax and get ready complete with bathrooms, closets, vanity mirrors, and couches. It was so elegant and looked like it should be a photo shoot location for a bridal magazine.

When we arrived at the bridal loft, they had chilled champagne and delicious cheeses, fruits, and other snacks to enjoy while we prepared. Perfect backdrop for 'getting ready' photos. The hill provided a gorgeous ceremony site, while the tasting room was transformed into a cozy area for an intimate reception. There's also a larger ballroom for bigger events. The food provided by Pippin Hill for cocktail hour and dinner was simple but exquisitely prepared, some of the best wedding reception food I've ever had. Waitstaff throughout the day was helpful, checking in on us to make sure we had everything we needed

I'm not sure how they handle wine tastings, but the place was packed when we visited on Saturday for the rehearsal, so they seem to be doing something right for a relatively new vineyard. I don't think my friend could have found a prettier place in the area to get married!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

My fiance proposed to me at this winery! The setting was perfect, the view of the Blue Ridge Mountains are amazing! We enjoyed sitting on the porch eating lunch and drinking wine to celebrate! Their Cabernet Franc is the best I have ever had! Kathryn did are tasting and she was great! So nice and knowledgable! The ham sandwich is the best on the menu! Very romantic place!

“so quaint and lovely...beautiful place and delicious wine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

We didn't sample a wine we didn't like, which is very unusual when visiting local wineries. I never wanted to leave--such a beautiful locale, cozy decor, warm and inviting feeling on the side porch...lovely!

“Everyone should have Pippin Hill Therapy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

A wonderful place to meet friends or hang out with your family. Wine tasting available or buy by the bottle or glass. Big deep porch with lots of cozy seating areas is what we like. Cavernous inside not as cozy. On a hillside overlooking blue ridge mountains, pretty valley and vineyard. Easy 20 minute drive south of Charlottesville. Afternoon hours only, I believe, so check before going. Nice flat grassy areas for small kids to run around. Pet friendly on leash. Visited by people of all ages. A regular spot for a girls afternoon for us, but could be a romantic or family spot or a special place for a celebration. Attentive waitstaff, good food/wine,Wonderful atmosphere. It will become one of your favorite spots too!
