Spring/Summer 2020

Sera Petras Photography

Welcome! No matter what travel guidelines are in place, you can still enjoy the year-round natural beauty, history, arts and music, and the small-city sophistication that defines Charlottesville. Our local businesses and venues have creatively shifted many of their offerings online, from virtual art exhibits and streaming concerts to online shopping, tastings and take-out dining. Buying local has never been more important, and we hope you will join us in supporting all of those who’ve joined us in creating this publication. Each year, we poll our Charlottesville Welcome Book readers, locals and tourists about their favorite local businesses that exemplify wonderful customer service, from delicious restaurants, amazing boutiques and hot spots to wonderful resorts and awe-inspiring historical landmarks — and everything in between! Watch for the Welcome Book Winner logo on websites and in shop windows, and go to CharlottesvilleWelcomeBook.com to get the insider’s scoop on the best of everything our town has to offer, regardless of whether you are a newcomer to town or a virtual visitor. All of the award winners are also highlighted in a special digital edition online, along with plenty of reader’s tips that will put you “in the know.” In a continued effort to support local businesses, this issue includes practical and entertaining things you can do at home, and NEW video links on ads and in editorial sections for more interactivity. On pages 24–31, you will find four tastings maps with markers for all of the area’s breweries, cideries, distilleries and wineries surrounding Charlottesville. Right now, many are offering curbside pick-up, online ordering and virtual tastings. Throughout the year, we provide lots of timely content that also supports local on our Facebook page at Facebook.com/CharlottesvilleWelcomeBook, so be sure to like and follow us. Welcome to . . .

Tour Monticello Virtually 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, 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 Photo Credit: Thomas Jefferson Foundation/Monticello/Mary Porter the list of World Heritage Sites known the world over as cherished pieces of human history and of great universal value. Right now, you can tour Monticello virtually in a 360-degree panoramic presentation, see the house and explore its furnishing, 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. You can also enjoy farm and garden videos on the property’s flower, vegetable and fruit gardens that are being shared by horticulture professionals. For more virtual tours and events, visit monticello.org.

Click on the above image to learn more about the history of Monticello.

Attractions & Museums

More Historical Riches After visiting Monticello virtually, head on over to James Monroe’s Highland, the plantation home of our fifth president, James Monroe. Just two-and-a-half miles down the road from Thomas Jefferson’s “Little Mountain,” Highland is a historic presidential residence and working farm with more than 500 acres of land. Right now, visitors are invited to tour the historic presidential residence, explore the amazing boxwood gardens and learn more about President Monroe and his wife, Elizabeth, without even having to step foot on the grounds. When both historical properties open back up, we recommend planning a trip to see both James Monroe’s Highland and Monticello on the same day, so you can also take a lunch break at the 18th-century Michie Tavern, just down the road from Monticello. Established in 1784 by Colonel William Michie, the rustic restaurant features hearty Southern fare and servers in period attire. Another presidential property to explore from home is James Madison’s Montpelier, the home of James and Dolly Madison. The 2,750-acre estate and mansion north of Charlottesville features historic buildings, engaging exhibits, active archeological dig sites and more.

Attractions & Museums Daytrip Dreaming Charlottesville itself offers a plethora of things to do and see, and its central location makes it the ideal place to stay while exploring other regions of the Commonwealth. Today, experiencing these regions can easily be done online.

A ttractions G uide

Already explored Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and James Monroe Highland? Take a virtual trip just north to James Madison’s Montpelier in Orange, Virginia. Montpelier is currently offering a variety of online programs and events in addition to a virtual tour of the house. Even further north, George Natural Bridge Washington’s Mount Vernon can also be experienced via virtual tours, live streams and online learning opportunities. Just west of Charlottesville is the quaint town of Staunton, which happens to be home to the American Shakespeare Center, the world’s only replica of Shakespeare’s original indoor theater. This renowned theater is currently streaming performances online for all to enjoy. Art lovers can virtually tour many of Charlottesville’s museums and galleries, and can also consider exploring the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) in nearby Richmond. Until it can welcome visitors again, the VMFA is offering virtual tours of its impressive collections, online activities and much more. Don’t end your virtual visit of Richmond without also seeing what Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens or Maymont has to offer in all their spring and summer glory. For other art and theater venues offering virtual activities and events, see pages 48-50. There will come a time when trips around the Charlottesville area can be planned once again, including an array of in-person tours catering to history buffs, foodie lovers and craft beverage fans as well as tours on horseback through the beautiful Virginia countryside. Until then, though, check out what options are online. Watch the Charlottesville Welcome Book for more ideas and planning inspiration, as well as CharlottesvilleFamily.com if you are looking for more familyfriendly daytrip ideas. Also, be sure to check out our sister publication WineandCountryLife.com for even more inspiration on outdoor pursuit ideas, local arts venues, local farm-to-table events and more. Gene Runion

Fun Especially for Families Where Families Play During this time, parents are doing their best to keep the kids occupied and learning. Charlottesville is a fantastic place for families to visit and play, but now folks are doing it in a whole new way.

A ttractions G uide

The Charlottesville community has done a wonderful job of creating virtual experiences for people of all ages. Families with young children won’t want to miss the online activities currently offered by the Virginia Discovery Museum. From arts and crafts to science projects, the museum features fun for the young on their website in lieu of not being able to visit in person. Another favorite of families in the area is Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond. Currently, the Garden created new ways to reach families at home. On their website, you will find a resources page for children that’s filled with virtual visits, gardening-at-home ideas, kids’ activities, online learning and more. Have a history buff in the family? Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and James Monroe’s Highland are two of many historic properties offering virtual tours. To keep little ones moving, The Little Gym of Charlottesville is also currently hosting free virtual classes on their Facebook page. While, local performing arts academies DMR Adventures and Live Arts are featuring numerous theater, dance and music classes for kids online. Additionally, young artists will be thoroughly entertained by IX Art Park’s “The Daily Creature” — a daily live stream on Facebook of stories and tutorials in sculpture and illustration that’s themed around animals. At the end of the day, gather the family around the screen for streamed concerts from local musicians as part of The Front Porch’s “Save The Music” campaign. It’s not all online fun though! If you’re looking for outdoor play and exploration, Wildrock, a nature play and discovery center in Crozet is offering families access to their trails by appointment only, as a way to ensure safe social-distancing practices. Until families can explore all of Charlottesville in person, continue to check out the creative online offerings of area businesses and venues. To find out more about how local families play, and for even more virtual resources, visit CharlottesvilleFamily.com.

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 award-winning wines. The Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA), which includes Albemarle and surrounding counties, contains a third of Virginia’s wine country with over 1,300 acres of stunning vineyards. Virginia has received both national and international acclaim for its wines, and our local AVA Photo credit: Early Mountain Vineyards continues to shine each year with many wines being selected for the Governor’s Case and being awarded Gold Medals in the Governor’s Cup Awards.

T ours & T astings G uide

Vineyards in our Monticello AVA benefit from a natural east-southeast exposure and warmer summer temperatures. More than 30 local vintners offer up tastings from the lightest, lemoniest Pinot Grigio to the deepest, richest Merlot, and many are doing so virtually right now. 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 the 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, even crafted the Monticello Reserve Ale — now the official beer of Monticello. In addition to home-brewed beer, hard cider was another everyday table drink in Jefferson’s time that has made a vibrant comeback in our region. One local cidery even uses Jefferson’s favorite local variety of apple, the Albemarle Pippin, to create a lovely hard cider. Virginia also has a long history of whiskey distilleries. The distillery at George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon is still in operation and was once the largest in America, producing 11,000 gallons. In addition to Mount Vernon, whiskey lovers can tour and visit local distilleries making craft vodka, gin and bourbon. Check the tastings maps beginning on page 24 to see all the craft beverage makers you can order from in and around Charlottesville, and check the calendar of events on our website (CharlottesvilleWelcomeBook.com) to find fun virtual events you can enjoy from home.

Seasonal Pairings Pairing Wine with Tomatoes & Peaches By Mandy Reynolds Photography by R.L. Johnson

T ours & T astings G uide

Gardeners far and wide often have an overabundance of tomatoes in the summer months to either enjoy fresh from the vine or as part of a favorite dish. Whether you’re harvesting beautiful heirloom tomatoes right from your garden or enjoying the bounty at the local farmers market, you are probably on the lookout for new ideas on how to serve them. Tomatoes, especially of the heirloom varieties, have beautiful, rich and varied flavors. Showcase the richness of these flavors with a traditional Italian Caprese Salad. This Italian classic “Insalata Caprese,” meaning “Salad of Capri,” is named after the famous white-cliffed resort island of Capri in the south of Italy. Creating a Caprese Salad is easy, but it is the quality of its ingredients that make it successful. A simple and elegant appetizer, it is comprised of rich flavorful tomatoes, high-quality mozzarella, a dribbling of the highest standard fruity olive oil, excellent sea salt, freshly ground pepper, then topped with the freshest basil. The flavors will truly shine, and you’ll begin to feel the fresh breeze of sea air from Capri with your very first bite. An easy and wonderful way to showcase the summer’s tomato bounty with friends, this dish is a classic. However, because tomatoes are so acidic, finding the right wine pairing can be a challenge. Stay clear of wines that are too low in acid, like a heavy oak-aged Chardonnay, as the wine will lose any pronounced flavors and come across flat. Tom Walters, who likes to be known more modestly as the wine “geek” rather then wine “expert” at Foods of All Nations, knows his stuff no matter what his preferred title. With the tomato and wine pairing challenge before us, we went to him for advice. His recommendation was Barboursville Vineyards’ 2014 Pinot Grigio for its crisp and balanced flavor. Pairing a Virginia wine made by Italians with this beautiful classic Italian dish, seemed to be a match made in heaven.

38

Spring/Summer 2020


Seasonal Pairings We contacted Barboursville Vineyards’ Sommelier Professionista, Alessandro Medici, to see what he thought. The vineyard’s Italian owners, Gianni and Silvana Zonin, invited Medici, an Italian native, to serve as the Sommelier at the vineyard’s fine-dining restaurant, Palladio. Twenty years later, he still helps uphold the restaurant’s impeccable style and taste. Of the 2014 Pinot Grigio, Alessandro responds, “It has delicate citrus and floral notes with balanced acidity and a refreshing finish. It pairs well with all Italian appetizers, from salty Prosciutto to fresh Caprese Salad. When we have Tomato and Burrata Salad on the menu at Palladio, I like to serve it with either our Vintage Rose, Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc.”

The simple blending of fresh Mascarpone, whipped and plated with ripe local peaches, becomes a lovely dessert for those warm summer nights when fussy cooking isn’t appealing. For the pairing, Walters recommends the digestif, War & Rust Quinquina, a side project of local winemaker Ben Jordan of Early Mountain Vineyards. This special blend is created using different combinations of Cabernet Franc, Petit Manseng, Tannat and Petit Verdot from year to year. Known as a solera wine, War & Rust is an ongoing project, where each year’s vintage is made incorporating some of the previous year’s vintage. We spoke to Jordan to see what he would pair with this dessert. He cited Early Mountain Vineyards’ cellar series, particularly the sweet Petit Manseng, explaining it has “both residual sugar and lots of acid. In general, it’s nice when pairing with desserts if the wine is sweeter than the dessert, so that the fruit character of the wine can still be expressed by some sweetness. The acidity of the wine would also serve to cut through the creaminess of the Mascarpone. If the dish is not very sweet, with no added sugar, then the Five Forks white blend might work.” For an added flare to your dessert-pairing, try soaking a slice of pound cake in War & Rust, and top with the whipped Mascarpone and fresh peaches.

Whether you go with a more balanced Pinot Grigio or a beautiful summer Rose, you can find just the right pairing for those gorgeous and flavorful tomatoes. We also asked Walters what he would choose to pair with the summer peaches we picked fresh from Chiles Peach Orchard, and he again returned to another Italian classic: Mascarpone cheese.

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. At his home at Monticello, you’ll find Jefferson’s original, restored dumbwaiter and restored wine cellar. Virginia is considered the birthplace of American wine. Jefferson’s dream to produce great local wine continues to this day with the Thomas Jefferson Foundation partnering with Piedmont Virginia Community College to create a training vineyard on Montalto, Jefferson’s “high mountain” that overlooks Monticello.

Wine & Dine Jefferson Style From Farm to Table

D ining G uide

Charlottesville lies among a few beautiful counties whose rich agricultural history and farm communities are well loved and supported by our many local restaurants and residents. Even the students at UVA have access to fresh produce through a food delivery program that partners with local farmers and artisans. Area chefs take great pride in creating memorable meals and letting the artisan’s hand show through when plating locally-crafted cheese, charcuterie and jam. Agri-artisans on the Monticello Artisan Trail supply the community with anything from locally-grown fruits and vegetables to Virginia-raised cattle and chickens. When dining locally, take note of the farms and artisanal ventures mentioned on menus, for you may encounter some of the people at a local farmers market when in season. During the warmer months, stop by a local specialty store and you are sure to find a taste of all that Charlottesville has to offer. At the Charlottesville Wine & Country Shop (WineandCountryShop.com), you’ll find an array of local products from wine and beer to jams, coffee and more — the perfect souvenir to take with you.

Galleries Art That Moves You Surrealist painter Salvador Dali said, “A true artist is not one who is inspired, but one who inspires others.” Whatever medium may inspire you, galleries and artwork abound here in Charlottesville, even amidst the current COVID-19 closings. Currently postponed is the popular First Friday Artwalk, so instead, enjoy a virtual tour around the area and immerse yourself in their online offerings, from virtual tours to online exhibits. Fralin Museum of Art at UVA

T he A rts & E vents C alender

A perfect place to start your virtual tour is the McGuffey Art Center, located one block from the Downtown Mall. This gallery space, which is normally full of artists at work in their studios, is accented by a gift shop that carries a variety of members’ art throughout the year. While you can’t browse the light-filled studios and multiple exhibition spaces at McGuffey right now, you can see the members and snippets of their work online. On the Downtown Mall, you can visit Chroma Projects and Second Street Gallery online. The University of Virginia’s Fralin Museum of Art provides a sophisticated, high-tech home for the art contained within its historic walls. Alongside their online collection, The Fralin is currently offering a video tour with curator Henry Skerrit of The Inside World: Contemporary Aboriginal Australian Memorial Poles. The more permanent exhibits the museum curates pull from the museum’s own permanent collections, as well as from other museums around the country. Another art museum at UVA, The Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection showcases Indigenous Australian art. As the only museum of its kind in the United States, the Kluge-Ruhe is a must visit. While stuck at home, browse their collection online, visit their social channels for “flat chat tours,” videos of past exhibitions and artist residencies, and take an introductory guide to Indigenous Australian art and culture. A virtual visit to the studio, gallery and printmaking workshop of landscape artist Frederick Nichols in Barboursville will allow you to see the work of Virginia artists. On your virtual tour, also stop at nearby Contemporary Art gallery Les Yeux du Monde just off Route 20. After visiting Barboursville, head east to Gordonsville and see a unique collection of work by local and national artists at the Annie Gould Gallery. To the west of Charlottesville is the gallery of P. Buckley Moss in Waynesboro. Keep an eye on the calendar for her special “Barn Shows,” when Moss opens up her McGuffey Art Center Waynesboro home in addition to the gallery. Whether you are merely appreciating or interested in purchasing, the Charlottesville area’s vibrant and robust art scene should not be missed.

Feel at Home Charm, history and nature – our area’s bed and breakfasts have all three. With no two rooms alike, you’ll have plenty to choose from when selecting a cottage, suite or room that reflects your personal style and needs. At any one of the area’s bed and breakfasts, you’ll enjoy all the experiences of a home away from home. Soon, you’ll once again be able to tour Charlottesville on your own and take advantage of packages that will whisk you away to historic sites and vineyards. When that time comes, a quieter retreat will offer walking trails and outdoor pursuits. You are likely to find the local staff of your chosen accommodation more than happy to suggest daytrips for your enjoyment. You’ll be able to mingle with other guests at afternoon tea and share stories of your travels at evening wine and cheese tastings. Or, you’ll have the choice to simply sit back and relax in a comfy rocking chair and enjoy the rolling hills, impressive mountains and warm, clean air. Your hosts will also be able to recommend an abundance of restaurants for every mood and palate, and suggest ideas for nightlife entertainment around town. Whatever you choose, you’ll be pampered with continental or full breakfasts, indulged in friendly conversation with knowledgeable innkeepers and made to feel at home during your stay.

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.

We’re here... So you can be there.

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.
