Pippin Hill was everything we could have hoped for including the views, food, bridal suite, and the gorgeous reception areas! The staff were very attentive and ensured everything went smoothly from over a year before the wedding through our wedding day.
Pippin Hill was absolutely amazing. The service was beyond what we could have asked for, the food was mind-blowing and so delectable. The wine is fantastic too. The view and venue itself were just breathtaking. At Pippin Hill, we were able to make our dreams come true for our wedding. The event coordinator made sure I had peace of mind all day, and they took care of the inclement weather plans for us, which we did have to use. Getting married on the veranda we feel was even more beautiful and … amazing than had we actually had the ceremony on the lawn as originally plan. The view of the mist on the mountains and vineyard as our backdrop for the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. We could not have asked for a more beautiful, friendly, accommodating, and just all around fantastic venue. Getting married at Pippin Hill was one of the best and easiest decisions we made with our wedding. It takes just one visit there and I promise you will fall in love with Pippin Hill. Read More
Pippin Hill was an absolute dream venue. Megan Moses is there as a facilitator every step of the way. The bride and groom lofts made the day-of a breeze. The food was incredible and the chef went out of the way to make new menu items to suit our tastes.
Pippin Hill was great to work with. The staff was friendly and extremely accommodating. Their in-house catering was fantastic and was one less thing we had to worry about on our wedding to-do list! Their Event Sales and Marketing Manager, Meg Forch was very responsive and helped make the wedding planning process run smoothly.
We could not have had a more beautiful backdrop or more delicious food! Honestly all of our guests can not stop saying how impressed they were with both! Their staff being amazing doesn't hurt either. Amazing amazing amazing! Loved everything
We hardly need to tell you that Pippin Hill is extraordinary, but overall, we really found that it was. Every detail of the property is thoughtful and lovely, the food is great, and the employees are serious pros at weddings. There were a few times when their communications with us were a little slow or unclear, and nothing is a bargain, but overall, we had a wonderful experience. Pippin Hill's staff did an especially excellent job setting things up for us on our wedding day, far beyond what I … expected. Read More
Exceeded our every expectation and the service and staff were outstanding. Not to mention, breathtaking views and decor overall. They had staff members assigned to each person in my family to make sure everything running smoothly. Would highly recommend to anyone considering getting married in Charlottesville. Excellent food and wines as well!
You can't ask for a more beautiful venue than Pippin Hill. The scenery is spectacular, the staff very courteous and professional, the food phenomenal. Everything was wonderful! My only complaint would be I felt sometimes they were out to charge for every little thing - for example an additional per person drink charge for a specialty cocktail when you are already paying for the top shelf open bar package - it seemed a little nickle and dimey.
