At Pippin Hill, we love hosting local businesses for private events and corporate retreats in our Reserve Room and throughout the property.

What better place to discuss your business goals and get your creative juices flowing than over breathtaking Blue Ridge views, just 15 minutes from downtown Charlottesville? Our private events staff will take care of all the details; come ready to take care of business and we’ll handle the rest.

Our Top 6 Reasons to Trade the Boardroom for the Reserve Room

      1. Get your team out of their everyday office rut
        Even well-established, dynamic teams find themselves “going through the motions” at times. Taking the team to a winery just might provide them with the inspiration they need to get back on track. Host your retreat in the Reserve Room followed by lunch on the private Veranda. We also have a wall divider to split the room for breakout sessions.
      2. Beautiful views lead to beautiful ideas
        Sometimes a change of scenery is just what a team needs to come up with that next great idea. Nothing gets the creative juices flowing like our inspiring views shared over lunch from Chef Ian Rynecki Private Events Menu. We’ll work within your budget to customize your menu to create a memorable and delicious farm-to-table culinary experience.
      3. Treat your team – They deserve it!
        Pop the Blanc de Blanc at end of retreat! Nothing says celebration like a glass of bubbly and toasting to your success.  Think of your next retreat as more than a business meeting – it’s a time for the team to recharge and become newly excited to work for a great company. And, meeting off campus boosts morale, leading to improved productivity towards your bottom line.
      4. Let another industry inspire you
        When you spend your days thinking about the same issues, sometimes interacting with another industry provides just the clarity you need to solve your business problems. At Pippin Hill we’ve got hospitality refined to an art- what can we learn from each other?
      5. Add a little flavor to the typical business lunch
        Chef Ian Rynecki is constantly coming up with new and unique flavor combination in each of his dishes. His menu creations pair perfectly with the wines we have to offer here at Pippin Hill. Spice up your business lunch to spice up your business mentality.
      6. Enjoy new activities and adventure to build team morale
        When you’re ready for a break from meetings and breakout sessions, we offer a variety of team building experiences. Enjoy our Pippin Hill Wine Passport, a Private Cooking Class with Executive Chef Ian Rynecki, a Garden Tour with Certified Horticulturalist Diane Burns, a Pippin Hill Scavenger Hunt (We can even make these clues specific to your company), lawn games, and more.

    Pippin Hill is located just 15 minutes from Downtown Charlottesville. Our Reserve Room’s 1.000 square-feet can comfortably fit 50 guests seated and has a dividing wall for breakout sessions.
