The Tasting Room


Great wine deserves great food — indeed each is better with the other — an ideal marriage. That’s why our Tasting Room is central to the Pippin Hill experience. We welcome guests to enjoy our estate wines while savoring Virginia’s most exciting cuisine (and view). From house-made pastas with light seasonal sauces to Pippin Hill sliders, Chef Scatena highlights the freshest ingredients from local farms, including our own Kitchen Garden, with seasonal menus that showcase our wines.

Open Tuesday – Sunday 11am to 5pm

Vineyard-to-table cuisine


With a fresh twist on an Old World winery, Pippin Hill’s vineyard, garden, farm and kitchen are seamlessly interwoven. We tend our vines in tandem with growing fresh herbs and vegetables, and Pippin Hill menus and products are inspired by our wines and vines. Grown here, enjoyed here; from vineyard-to-table, everything is fresh, local sustainable and delicious. To raise a glass and enjoy a meal at Pippin Hill is to celebrate the goodness and bounty of this place.

Our Food Philosophy

Wine tasting

Sample and savor Pippin Hill’s estate wines in an incomparable setting. Relax on our Veranda Terrace overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains, or enjoy a custom-crush wine flight at our hand-carved wood bar in the Tasting Room, complete with wood-fired oven and refined-rustic bistro ambiance.
