July 4th Weekend: Featured Tasting Room Menu Item
 Grilled Calamari


Whether it’s Crispy Chesapeake Bay Oysters year-round or Soft Shell Crab for a sweet second in the month of May, our culinary team strives to offer our guests a seafood entree on each of our seasonal menus.

This month, we will be featuring Chef Amalia’s Grilled Calamari!

If you are a calamari fan, look no further than Pippin Hill’s Grilled Calamari.
This seafood is adaptable, and willing to take on many flavors and seasonings.
But here on The Hill,
We like it complex…spicy….and with the ultimate kick!

Our Grilled Calamari dish features an array of flavors that play off traditional Spanish cuisine. Combining  simple components of salsa verde, cilantro and cannellini beans, this dish enables naturally rich flavors to emerge with tremendous flavor. The cold & rustic sauce is the perfect layering between the crunch of pine nuts and kick of heat from the Calabrian Chiles.

The Grilled Calamari is light and delicate with overwhelming depth of flavor, a memorable pairing with our Chardonnay Reserve.

From our Executive Sous Chef Bill Scatena: “Summertime is upon us. At Pippin Hill, we focus on flavors that enhance, yet embrace the season. As any Charlottesville native knows, summer in Virginia is hot & humid. So, in observation of the warmer weather, our culinary team is challenging the heat of the summer with exciting flavors for your afternoon lunch.”
