Wine & Sliders at Pippin Hill

We've been doing a ton of renovations to our house this year, so my husband and I decided that there wouldn't be a big vacation trip anywhere. Instead, I'm going to make the most of my PTO days and make day trips out to wineries. I got an awesome deal on this thing called the Virginia Wine Pass. Basically, it's a membership card good for one calendar year that gets you a ton of awesome deals (like free tastings) at wineries around Virginia. Um, yes please!

The first day trip we made was to my favorite place (of course) - Pippin Hill. We decided to bring my Mother-in-law and her best friend with us. I was so excited to share this place with them and it did not disappoint!

We started off with a wine tasting at the bar inside then planted ourselves on their amazing patio for lunch. It was super hot the day we went so we got a bottle of their Red Pump to drink with our lunch. It's one of those great red wines that tastes good chilled and it really hit the spot!

For an appetizer, we started off with their cheese plate. It was so delicious and I was so hungry that I forgot to snap a pic BEFORE we at all of it. The thing I love about Pippin's Hill menu is that it always changes with the seasons. So, there are always different cheeses and jams to try. This one had a blue cheese, a cheddar and a type of goat cheese, dried fruits, jam, crostini and candied walnuts. Yummy!

Every time we go to Pippin Hill for lunch, I pretty much can never say no to their sliders. These babies are local grass-fed beef with mcclure cheese, caramelized shallots and grapevine smoked ketchup served with amazing parmigiano frites. You cannot go wrong here people!

If you haven't been out to visit this place yet - put it on your summer to-do list. You won't regret it. Beautiful views, delicious food and amazing wine makes for the perfect afternoon!
