Description

Virginia Wine & Monticello Experience  by Bucket List Club

SEPTENARY - The Winery at Seven Oaks Farm:

Situated on 109 acres of rolling hills surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains,
Seven Oaks Farm and Vineyards is a magnificent property located just 15 minutes from Charlottesville in Greenwood, VA.

The estate is a Virginia Historic Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  It has been owned by a number of families in Albemarle County who figure prominently in local religious, educational and political history.

Perhaps the most intriguing story about Seven Oaks Farm is of the seven white oaks that once stood on the south lawn in front of the manor home.  These majestic trees were each named for a Virginia president.  In 1954, Hurricane Hazel destroyed all but one of the oaks.  Given the estate’s ties to Charlottesville and the University of Virginia, it seems fitting that the lone surviving tree was the one named for Thomas Jefferson.  That oak tree stands proudly on the property to this day.

Our VIP Wine Experience begins in the production facility with a member of the winemaking team.  Then we will proceed to the Barrel Room where we will enjoy a private wine tasting which includes multiple wines not available to the public.


Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards:

Join us for this unique, one-of-a-kind Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards Experience! Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted at the top of our hydrangea path, with a glass of  Sparkling Rosé.  Your first experience will be a Garden Tour with Diane Burns,  our certified horticulturist.

Entertaining and gastronomy are in the heart and soul of Executive Chef Ian Rynecki, and sustainable, local sourcing is his passion. Inspired by the bounty of Pippin Hill’s carefully cultivated kitchen gardens,

Chef Ian creates a parade of plates deliciously aligned with our vineyard-to-table concept.  You will enjoy a 4-course curated meal, complete with exclusive cellar wines, hand-selected by our Vineyard Manager.

Monticello (Private / After Hours VIP Tour & Tasting):

This one-of-a-kind experience picks your group up at your doorstep in Charlottesville and takes you right to the doorstep of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello where you will meet your private guide, bypass the gates and lines in this exclusively offered tour. Experience Monticello after hours and behind the scenes.

See the full house, including the upper floors. Learn about Jefferson and the times in which he lived, and all the people, both enslaved and free, who lived and labored at Monticello. This exclusive pass allows guests to explore the mountaintop after the regular closing time, providing a peace and quiet for reflection that differs from the activity of a day visit.
