A Culinary Vineyard in the Heart of Virginia’s Wine Country Lorem Ipsum Dolor Sit Amet.

Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyard lies in the rolling hills of Virginia hunt country just south of Charlottesville. Conceived by Dean and Lynn as a purpose-built event venue, Pippin Hill matches Easton & Porter’s seamless event planning with panoramic hilltop views of a pristine valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Pippin Hill reflects the traditional agrarian roots of rural Virginia while offering a fresh interpretation of the classic winery. The Farm Table restaurant and wine bar opens to landscaped gardens and courtyards bordered by sun-drenched vineyards. The venue is designed to be creatively personalized and transformed for each event. With signature Pippin Hill vineyard-to-table wine and cuisine, and the seamless intuitive service common to every Easton & Porter event and venue this is a setting that makes memories magical.

The property is open to guests whenever it’s not booked for private events. The Farm Table restaurant features a wood-fired oven where breads and seasonal dishes are prepared, and the Winery Tasting Room serves Pippin Hill signature wines and food pairings. Just minutes from Charlottesville and UVA the property has quickly gained favor with local residents and the area’s many visitors.

Bill’s formal training as a sculptor and artist is evident in his exquisite culinary craftsmanship. His medium of choice is farm fresh ingredients, and he delights in bringing out their best flavor. Bill creates delicious food that is also visually beautiful, because, as he says, “You eat with your eyes first.” A native of California, Bill apprenticed under his sister, Chef Amalia Scatena, at Kewsick Hall in 2012. His natural affinity behind the line and his expertise in farm-to-table cuisine catapulted him from line cook to sous chef, and now at Pippin Hill, to Executive Chef. Bill oversees à la carte food and wine pairings in the Tasting Room, leads our artisan catering team and teaches at the Pippin Hill Cooking School.
