Food Scene
The pizza and appetizers are your best best. The food is good but it's really more about the views.

This place is located at base of Wintergreen Mountain and has a great apres-ski scene. Sit by the fire and enjoy a cocktail. They have a great outdoor set up. Equally lovely in the summer.

This is by far my favorite winery in the area. They have a wonderful farm to table dinner that includes 4 courses, generous wine pairings. Reservations are a must. Dine al fresco, weather permitting. Worth the splurge! Starry Nights outdoor music concerts in the summer months.

Essentials
I usually drive to Charlottesville for groceries but will go here in a pinch. Not great, but convenient if you've forgotten something. They do have a nice selection of beer and wine, bread from the local Goodwin Creek Bakery and chocolate. And that's about it. But really, what more do you need?

A great place to pick up a sandwich, local food stuffs (wine, beer, cider, bread, kombucha, baked goods, and coffee) and yummy prepared food. Not cheap but definitely worth a visit. The tuna sandwich is one of the best I've ever had! Pick up food to take on a picnic or to polo on Sunday. Outdoor seating only and no washrooms.
