Early Mountain Vineyards

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! 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 on ads throughout this issue 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. 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 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!

Attractions & Museums Summertime at Monticello

A ttractions G uide

From the moment you glimpse the iconic pillars of Monticello’s West Portico and the breathtaking displays of summer daylilies, 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 Photo Credit: Thomas Jefferson Foundation/Monticello State, among other roles. Jefferson was also an architect, scholar, musician, inventor and agriculturalist. Like the Taj Mahal and Tower of London, Monticello is on the list of World Heritage Sites recognized as cherished pieces of human history and of great universal value. When you tour the home, his 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 he designed for his famous letters. This summer, visitors can enjoy seasonal outdoor tours featuring the property’s archaeological discoveries and a look at the experiences of the enslaved people who lived and labored on the Monticello plantation. Those interested in the history of gardening can join the 45 minute Gardens and Grounds Tours offered daily through the summer.

Vineyards Bountiful & Beautiful

Photo credit: Cindy Schornberg of Keswick Vineyards

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 spring temperatures. Now the fifth largest wine-producing state in the country, Virginia has received both national and international acclaim for its wines.

T ours & T astings G uide

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. Cabernet Franc, lighter than a Cabernet Sauvingnon, tends to have peppery aromas with hints of tobacco, plum or violets. The native North American Norton is deeply colored and might have notes of coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Viognier is a white variety that gives off floral or fruity aromas but is typically a dry or slightly off-dry wine. Whatever your palate desires — flowery, fruity, smoky or light — you’re sure to find it here. An old world family heritage blends a new world wine tradition with Virginia terroir.

Wine festivals bring thousands of visitors, who come to taste the variety of flavors, enjoy local music, sample local produce and take in the glorious country views. Many wineries offer tours, barrel and vertical flight tastings, multi-course wine-pairing meals and special events for connoisseurs and novices alike. Keep an eye on CharlottesvilleWelcomeBook.com for upcoming events, like the ValleyFest Beer & Wine Festival at Massanutten Resort in May. Getting out to experience the vineyards is easy, as all major roads are marked with the grape “Tours� signs, helping wine lovers navigate their way throughout the country roads. Central Virginia Photo Credit: Robin Bethke is so picturesque that an unplanned detour can be a lovely way to explore a part of the region you may not have discovered otherwise; for those who like to make an itinerary and stick to it, it might be gratifying to know that many scenic drives offer a cluster of vineyards within easy distance of each other. See the Regional Wine Trail map on pages 24-25 to find your way around the Monticello AVA, and see page 44 for some of the areas most sought-out events. We also suggest bringing a picnic to your favorite vineyard to enjoy with wine by-the-glass or a bottle purchased from the tasting room.

The finest wines from grapes tailored to Central Virginia soil.

Wine & Dine Jefferson Style Jefferson’s Love of Food & Wine

D ining G uide

Dining Room at Monticello: Monticello/Sequoia Design

Thomas Jefferson was sometimes called “America’s first wine expert” due to his extensive experimentation in viticulture and oenology. Visitors can check out Monticello’s restored wine cellar in the passage beneath the house. A platform above the brick floor allows visitors entry to the wine cellar to see what it looked like during Jefferson’s retirement years during the first part of the 19th century.

A spectacular sight awaits visitors in the dining room, which features walls painted a brilliant chrome yellow. The color, which replaced the Wedgewood blue, inspired so many homeowners across the country. 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.

Wine & Dine Jefferson Style

Charlottesville lies among a few beautiful counties, including Albemarle, Nelson and Orange, whose rich agricultural history and farm community are well loved and supported by our many local restaurants. Well before socalled locavores arrived in the headlines, many of our restaurants were already building their reputations on the quality of the local food they supplied to their grateful customers. Area chefs take great pride in creating memorable meals, and they also enjoy letting the artisan’s hand show through when plating locally crafted cheese, charcuterie, jam and wine. It is no exaggeration to say that local chefs and restaurateurs are friends with the growers, farmers and brewers who supply their establishments. Take note of the farms and artisanal ventures mentioned by name on menus, for you may encounter some of the people at the popular City Market that takes place each Saturday throughout the summer or find their products on the shelves of a specialty store — the perfect souvenir or gift.

Wine & Dine Jefferson Style Casual Dining At the forefront of the farm-to-table movement, Charlottesville is a hot bed for gourmet food on-thego. Food trucks are a staple of the city’s foodie culture, offering a variety of treats to tempt any taste bud.

D ining G uide

From Southern-inspired cuisine, to sweet and sugary dessert-centric trucks, or even locally sourced boozeinfused food, there is a convenient and epicurean delight for the most discerning of palates! Food trucks can be found throughout the city, from festivals to winery and brewery events and more. If you are strolling the UVA campus during term time, you are sure to run into students in line for their favorite lunchtime dishes. The university currently partners with The Pie Guy, Got Dumplings, Yum Yum Express, BBQ U and Pokee. During UVA terms, you will likely find these food trucks at the historic Amphitheater on the campus Monday-Friday during lunch time. Head to a vineyard or brewery a variety of week nights and any Friday or Saturday night, and you are likely to spot any one of Charlottesville’s delicious mobile kitchens, serving up dinner and delicious bites to enjoy with a local craft beverage. On Fridays during the summer, venture to the Downtown Mall for live music at the Sprint Pavilion. During the popular Fridays After Five, you can enjoy food from vendors and food trucks while you listen to performances by local groups. You are also likely to encounter food trucks at other various festivals and evetns at the Sprint Pavilion throughout the season. No matter what you are craving, from pizza to donuts, you are likely to come across it in the transportable form of a food truck. And, just like the area’s stationary restaurants, most truck chefs have a commitment to sourcing local, sustainable foods. With this growing trend, summer is the perfect time to enjoy a casual bite while enjoying the warm, sunny weather and dining al fresco!

The Arts & Music Scene

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 or provoke you, galleries and artwork abound here in Charlottesville. Each first Friday of the month, local galleries and other venues on the Downtown Mall open their doors to display works of art in the popular First Friday Artwalk.

T he A rts G uide

A perfect place to start your walk is the McGuffey Art Center. This gallery space is full of artists at work in their studios accented by a gift shop that carries a variety of members’ art throughout the year. You can pick up a gallery guide to First Friday offerings as well as browse the 45 light-filled studios and three galleries at McGuffey itself. The University of Virginia’s Fralin Museum of Art provides a sophisticated, high-tech home for the art contained within its historic walls. Alongside the permanent exhibits this summer, explore special exhibits, such as “Imagining Antiquity: Italianate Prints” through July 23. Another exhibition that will be at the Fralin Museum of Art this summer is “Collect, Care, Conserve, Curate: The Life of the Art Object,” a multi-cultural exhibition showcasing some of the rare pieces in the museum’s permanent collection. At art gallery Chroma Projects, which relocated to West Main Street earlier this year, you can see “Sounding Things: Photographs by Ellen Climo” in June. Harris Fine Art is also located in downtown Charlottesville and showcases over 20 different artists. Another unique local treasure of art is the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia. Originating in 1991 and with a full program of exhibits, lectures, research and education programs, the Kluge-Ruhe collection has a lot to offer the visitor who’s interested in indigenous artwork. You can see works from the KlugeRuhe Collection at the Pantops, Charlottesville location and at the University of Virginia.

Ash Dargan/Courtesy of Kluge-Ruhe

A visit to the studio, gallery and printmaking workshop of landscape artist Frederick Nichols is just a short drive north of Barboursville. Visit the Nichols Gallery Annex to see the work of Virginia artists. On the way, stop at Contemporary Art gallery Les Yeux du Monde just off Route 20. Through June 18, you can see “Peter Skinner: Paintings” at Les Yeux du Monde. Check out P. Buckley Moss’ Downtown Waynesboro Gallery or Barn Show as well when you are in the area. Whether you are merely appreciating or interested in purchasing, the Charlottesville area’s vibrant robust art scene should not be missed.

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. USA Today featured Charlottesville as a great place to invest in a home. “Take one of the nation’s quintessential college towns, throw in a big slice of American history, add golf courses and wineries, set it all in prime horse country, and the result is Charlottesville,” says Larry Olmsted for USA Today. We couldn’t agree more!

Charlottesville’s geographic proximity in the center of Virginia provides residents with far more than just the gentle rivers, rolling pastures, mild seasons and an easy, two-and-a-half-hour drive to Washington, D.C. or the Atlantic coast. For locals, “green” doesn’t just describe the rolling hills that surround Charlottesville. Green is a way of life for our eco-conscious residents, businesses and local government. Charlottesville is leading the way to a healthier, cleaner future in Virginia and has been recognized with the Governor’s Environmental Excellence Award. Now that you know a little more about all the great local offerings, turn to page 58 for details on how to get settled in your new home. Welcome to

Charlottesville!

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 its 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 it that Washington Photo Credit: Jennifer Jones & 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,” the area located at the intersection of University Avenue and the central entrance to UVA, the Honor Gate. Always abustle, the Corner has a great selection of casual restaurants with college prices and trendy shops that give it a cool vibe.

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. Driving west from Charlottesville, into Albemarle County, brings you to Ivy. Convenient to the city, this area has beautiful rolling hills with new and historic homes. Also west of town are prestigious neighborhoods such as Farmington, Ednam and others. A bit farther west is charming Crozet, close to many vineyards, golf courses and parks, with gorgeous mountain views. A mix of planned neighborhoods and rural living, Crozet has experienced a lot of growth while maintaining its country charm. Becoming home to more and more wineries, breweries and distilleries, this area is perfect for a quieter home only a skip away from the culturally rich city and world-renowned craft beverage industry.

Becoming a Local How It All Started

N ewcomer ’ s S pecial S ection

Charlottesville, named for Queen Charlotte Sophia of England and founded in 1762, is an inspiring setting to call home. Albemarle County’s historic roots extend equally as far. The county is named in honor of William Anne van Keppel. He was the second Earl of Photo credit: National Park Service Albemarle and served as Governor General of the county from 1734 to 1735. The first county seat was located in Scottsville. In 1761, however, county government was moved to Charlottesville, which was established as a town in 1762 and as a city in 1888. One reason Charlottesville has so many transplanted residents is that it’s a small city — just over 10.4 square miles with approximately 48,000 residents — but it has the trappings of a big one. Musical acts and dramatic performances, fine dining, lovely shops — all are available in abundance. Covering 726 square miles, the county’s population is more than double that of the city, at about 103,000. Both city and county are fascinating places to explore and wonderful locales to call home, and we welcome you!
