Spring/Summer 2019

Wintergreen Resort

Welcome!

Year-round natural beauty, hallowed halls of history, spectacular arts and music and small-city sophistication — Charlottesville has it all! It is easy to see why Orbitz.com named Charlottesville as one of the five places every American should visit and National Geographic named it the third happiest place in the United States! Here, you can walk in the footsteps of Thomas Jefferson at his Monticello home and at his beloved University of Virginia — both are World Heritage Sites full of fascinating history and interesting architecture — and you can relax in the scenic countryside he so admired, dotted with stunning vineyards, horse farms and Blue Ridge Mountain views. With so many wonderful places to enjoy here in Charlottesville, it can be tough to choose. So we went to the experts to find out what they think is the best of the best. We polled our Charlottesville Welcome Book readers, locals and tourists about their favorite local businesses that exemplify wonderful customer service, from delicious restaurants, amazing boutiques, hot spots and cool clubs to wonderful resorts and awe-inspiring historical landmarks — and everything in between! Watch for the Welcome Book Winner logo in shop windows, and go to CharlottesvilleWelcomeBook.com to get the insider’s scoop on the best of everything our town has to offer. All of the award winners are highlighted in a special digital edition online, along with plenty of reader’s tips that will put you “in the know.” Throughout the spring and summer, we’ll give away tickets to Charlottesville concerts, festivals and other events on our Facebook page at Facebook.com/ CharlottesvilleWelcomeBook, so be sure to like us for a chance to win!

Monticello in Spring & Summer Glory From the moment you glimpse the iconic pillars of Monticello’s West Portico, you know you are in the presence of a visionary mind. The author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson dedicated his life to serving our country at its founding as the third United States president, Photo Credit: Thomas Jefferson Foundation/Monticello/Mary Porter Governor of Virginia and Secretary of State, among other roles. Jefferson was also an architect, scholar, musician, inventor and agriculturalist. Like the Taj Mahal and the Tower of London, Monticello is on the list of World Heritage Sites known the world over as cherished pieces of human history and of great universal value. When you tour Monticello, Jefferson’s clever inventions abound, from the Great Clock in the hallway that ingeniously marks the days and hours with a pulley system, to the polygraph copying machine Jefferson designed for his famous letters. Quench your curiosity with the Behind-the-Scenes House Tour, where you’ll see unique interior architectural features, learn about on-going restoration efforts and more. For more tours and events, visit monticello.org.

Fun Especially for Families Where Families Play

A ttractions G uide

A fun way for families to see Charlottesville is to hop abroad the free trolley and ride around downtown and the University of Virginia’s Corner. The trolley stops at specially marked bus stops every 15 minutes, so getting on and off for adventures and exploration is easy. Families of young children won’t want to miss the Virginia Discovery Museum. In addition to the exciting games and learning exhibits, this children’s museum offers visitors the chance to explore Charlottesville in miniature form. Little C’Ville, one of the museum’s exhibits, includes a mini bread bakery, The Paramount Theater and the post office. Three new exhibits — Discovery Farm, Discover Outdoors and Financial Fundamentals — recently opened. If you’re looking for outdoor play, the McGuffey Park near The McGuffey Art Center is an easy walk from the Downtown Mall. This lovely little park is packed with fun. Or, for outdoor play with stunning world-famous views and nature of the wild kind, visit Shenandoah National Park, a short 30-minute drive away. To find out more about how local families play, visit CharlottesvilleFamily.com or pick up a free copy of CharlottesvilleFamily’s Bloom magazine, available around town.

Vineyard Tours & Tastings Vineyards Bountiful & Beautiful Thomas Jefferson dreamt that Virginia wines would one day be plentiful and held in high regard, and today’s local vintners have accomplished that by producing wonderful award-winning wines. The Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA), which includes Albemarle and surrounding counties, encompasses more than half of Virginia’s wine country and contains more than approximately 1,200 acres of stunning vineyards. Vineyards in our Monticello AVA benefit from a natural east-southeast exposure and mild winter temperatures.

T ours & T astings G uide

Now the fifth largest wine-producing state in the country, Virginia has received both national and international acclaim for its wines. More than 30 local vintners offer up tastings from the lightest, lemoniest Pinot Grigio to the deepest, richest Merlot. Varieties special to the Monticello AVA include Cabernet Franc, Norton and Viognier. Whatever your palate desires — flowery, fruity, smoky or light — you’re sure to find it here.

Best of the Brew Beer, Cider & Spirits Charlottesville is proud to be home to a myriad of microbrewers, taphouses, distilleries and cideries. Thomas Jefferson took great interest in creating not only wines, but also beers and ciders. Monticello, in conjunction with our own homegrown Starr Hill Brewery, crafted an artisanal beer: Monticello Reserve Ale — now the official beer of Monticello.

T ours & T astings G uide

In addition to Jefferson’s home-brewed beer, hard cider was another everyday table drink made from Monticello’s apples. One local cidery uses Jefferson’s favorite variety of apple, the Albemarle Pippin, to create a lovely hard cider, while another cidery makes a delightful perry, a fermented pear juice. Virginia also has a long history of whiskey distilleries. The distillery at George Washington’s home Mount Vernon is still in operation and was once the largest in America, producing 11,000 gallons. A few times a year, local, regional and national breweries come together for a variety of beer festivals. These events are a great way to sample many different craft beverages.

A modern Beer Hall close to UVA and the downtown with a fantastic line-up of 24 craft and European draft beers and local wine on tap. With an award-winning renovation, this beautiful lively space is ideal for hosting large and small events. The from-scratch menu reflects the best locallysourced raw ingredients for Alpine-inspired modern plates, classic bar cuisine and a catered menu, all on online. Our Award -winning patio/restaurant has ample seating in and out. We are always kid-friendly with 2 regulation courts for bocce ball, board games and ping -pong.

Wine & Dine Jefferson Style Jefferson’s Love of Food & Wine A man with many passions, Thomas Jefferson is sometimes called “America’s first wine expert” due to his extensive experimentation in viticulture and oenology. When visiting Monticello, be sure to check out Jefferson’s original, restored dumbwaiter and restored wine cellar in the passage beneath the house. A spectacular sight awaits visitors in the dining room, which features walls painted a brilliant chrome yellow. The color, which replaced the Wedgewood blue that inspired so many homeowners across the country, is not so new. It was chosen by Jefferson around 1815 to grace the walls that set the scene for many formal dinners, where rice soup, mutton and even a

new treat, ice cream, was served. The dining-room restoration was sponsored by Polo Ralph Lauren and marked the first collaboration with Monticello curators and archaeologists with regards to the dining-room ceramics. Excavations showed that, in Jefferson’s retirement years, the family most often dined on pearlware, an English earthenware similar to porcelain but not as expensive. A set of green, shell-edged pearlware now graces the dining room, on loan from The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.

Virginia is considered the birthplace of American wine. While Jefferson’s desire to have great wines locally available was never fulfilled during his lifetime, thanks to his unrelenting pursuits and successors, we can all now raise our glasses and revel in his dream come to fruition. To ensure that this dream continues, the Thomas Jefferson Foundation has partnered with Piedmont Virginia Community College to create a training vineyard on Montalto, Jefferson’s “high mountain” overlooking Monticello.

Experience engaging local performances and touring troupes this spring and summer at venues large and small. The Blackfriars Playhouse at the renowned American Shakespeare Center in Staunton — the world’s only replica of Shakespeare’s original indoor theater — and Four County Players in nearby Barboursville, a talented community theater, bring us exciting shows this season. On the Downtown Pedestrian Mall sits The Paramount Theater, which always offers an array of acts throughout the year. The Live Arts Theater just around the corner presents many unique shows, too, and music fans should be sure to check venues, such as John Paul Jones Arena on the University of Virginia’s campus and the Sprint Pavilion, also on the Downtown Mall, for must-see performances. For a smaller music venue, visit the Jefferson Theater or The Southern Music Hall & Cafe, both of which always have something exciting on the schedule. The classical music lover can find an impressive selection of performances in Charlottesville as well, put on by the Charlottesville Municipal Band, the Charlottesville Symphony, Victory Hall Opera and the Charlottesville Opera.

Historic Garden Week in Charlottesville

If you want an exclusive peek at some of Virginia’s most stunning private properties, visit Charlottesville during Historic Garden Week from April 27 to May 4. During “America’s Largest Open House,” you’ll walk through gardens awash with blooms, visit antique-filled homes and tour famous landmarks, all facilitated by the Garden Club of Virginia. On Sunday, April 28, enjoy tours of five striking Albemarle County properties located west of Charlottesville in the small community of Ivy, like the Boninti home. Once a bare cattle field, owners Andrew and Frances Boninti purchased the two-acre property in 1981 and transformed it into a lush garden oasis. The garden was carefully constructed by planting native plants and tending to the property’s ecological web. The paths winding through the garden are made of recycled concrete and divide the foliage into rooms. The flowers include 250 varieties of daffodils shaded under a canopy of trees. The remodeled home on the property showcases the owners’ love for antiques and collectibles with 19th century clocks, Pennsylvania sideboard and a tiger maple dining room table. Viewpoint, another property on this year’s tour, is named for its view of the Turner Mountains. The estate features a renovated house built in 1960 that includes classical revival architecture and a guest cottage inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s North Pavilion. The gardens include boxwoods and a reflecting pond as well as flowers like peonies, hellebores and woodland poppies. The Ottaway home gardens are a must-see. The owners’ unique design showcases their love of travel with a Hawaiianinspired balancing rock statue and a lily pond inspired by their trips to Japan. Vegetable and herb gardens as well as spring bulbs can also be observed on the property. On Monday, April 29, join free tours of the gardens surrounding UVA’s world-famous Academical Village. Stroll through some of the Pavilions, which are still used as teaching facilities and faculty living quarters as Jefferson had intended. Nearby Carr’s Hill, which was completed in 1909, has been the home to eight of UVA’s presidents. Pavilions in the tour include Pavilion II and Pavilion IV. While visiting the Pavilions, attendees can also see West Range Room 13, the room where Edgar Allen Poe stayed during his year at the University of Virginia. Go to vagardenweek. org for more information and tickets. Monticello will also be celebrating Garden Week with special programming. Scheduled events include lectures about the estate’s historic landscape from vegetables to flowers. 46

Congratulations on choosing Charlottesville as your new home! Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, your new community is known for year-round natural beauty and small-city sophistication. Charlottesville has received countless accolades in recent years for a variety of reasons — from its delicious, locally-sourced restaurants to its active, sports-centric community.

The Scoop on UVA The University of Virginia is a bastion of tradition founded by Thomas Jefferson, the most popular man in town. Those who are fond of him often refer to him as TJ or Mr. Jefferson. Whether you’re preparing to enter the university’s hallowed halls for a degree or enjoying a weekend in town, here is your guide to local lingo. We proudly cheer on our Orange and Blue, “The Cavaliers” — “Cavs” for short, or “Wahoos.” What’s a Wahoo? Legend has Photo Credit: Jennifer Jones it that Washington & Lee baseball fans dubbed the UVA players “wahoos” during their fierce in-state rivalry back in the 1890s. By 1940, “Wahoos” was in general use to denote the University students or events relating to them. The abbreviated “Hoos” sprang up later in student newspapers. The area on which UVA sits is called “Grounds,” not “campus,” and freshmen here are called “first-years.” The large, domed building with Mr. Jefferson’s great statue is the Rotunda, and its recent renovation and restoration project of the nearly 200-year-old structure has helped it remain at the heart of the University’s academic mission. It faces a huge grass courtyard known as “The Lawn,” surrounded by historic residences that are still coveted student and faculty residences. From the steps of the Rotunda, you can see “The Corner.” Always abustle, The Corner has a great selection of casual restaurants with college prices and trendy shops that give it a cool vibe.

Becoming a Local Education Matters

N ewcomer ’ s S pecial S ection

Charlottesville is a fabulous place to raise a family. The University of Virginia provides us with a highly educated population, diverse cultures, strong employment, college sporting events, a lively arts scene and state-of-the-art health care. From preschool to post-graduate, excellence in education is important here, and parents will find a huge variety of preschools, from creative co-ops to international immersion programs. Charlottesville’s long history of prioritizing education is exemplified in our many schools. Not only are the public school systems exceptional, but our area boasts more private-school opportunities per capita than most, offering everything from competitive college-prep programs (with boarding options) to schools based on the teachings of alternative leaders in education. Charlottesville City Schools, Albemarle County Schools and area private schools believe in the evidence behind exposing students to a wide variety of experiences, viewpoints and opportunities so they can develop their own interest areas and strengths. From fine arts, STEM technologies and academies, and computer availability to project-based learning, immersion language curriculums and multi-age classrooms, students have the tools needed to learn and apply in all aspects of life. Learn all about Charlottesville’s educational opportunities at CharlottesvilleFamily.com.

Charlottesville is home to an amazing variety of real estate agents who are well-versed in our eclectic selection of neighborhoods. Begin your neighborhood search with Belmont, a historic community within walking distance of Downtown, where you’ll find a mix of Victorian-style homes and adorable cottages with picket fences. Next, check out the charming neighborhoods of Rose Hill (close to Downtown) or Rugby Avenue (closer to the University of Virginia) and the surrounding neighborhoods. Fifeville and Fry’s Spring neighborhoods are great options for those wanting a short commute to the UVA Medical Center. Subdivisions north and south of town provide family-friendly streets with neighborhood schools and pools. Driving west from Charlottesville, into Albemarle County, brings you to Ivy, an area with beautiful rolling hills and new and historic homes. Also west of town are prestigious neighborhoods such as Farmington and Ednam, among others. A bit farther west is charming Crozet, a mix of planned neighborhoods and rural living. On the east side of Charlottesville, Keswick is renowned for its stunning horse farms and ivy-clad estates and is the connector between the bustling city and the charming countryside. Wherever you choose to call home, you can enjoy the unparalleled mountain views and so much more.

How It All Started

Charlottesville, named for Queen Charlotte Sophia of England and founded in 1762, is an inspiring setting to call home. Charlotte was also known as the wife of King George III, the object of scorn by Thomas Jefferson and others during the American Revolution. The University of Virginia officially opened in March of 1825 and Charlottesville officially became a city in 1888. Albemarle County’s historic roots extend equally as far, having been founded in 1744 and named in honor of William Anne van Keppel, the second Earl of Albemarle and the Governor General of the county from 1734 to 1735. One reason Charlottesville has so many transplanted residents is that it’s a small city — according to the U.S. Census Bureau, at around 10.3 square miles, with an estimated 46,912 residents — but it has the trappings of a big one. Covering about 721 square miles, the county’s population is more than double that of the city, at an estimated 106,878. With stunning views, rolling vineyards, quaint towns, historic inns and more, there is much to explore in the county. The city is one of few in the state with a triple-A Bond rating from two national reporting agencies and was recently ranked one of the top cities in the country to do business. Check out the Charlottesville Wine & Country Living magazine to explore how to make the most out of life here.
