Charlottesville/Piedmont Region Tour, August 16-18, 2019

Welcome to the 2019 Charlottesville-Piedmont Region Tour!  Charlottesville and the Piedmont Region are home to UVA, Monticello, Montpelier, fantastic shopping, great restaurants, outstanding wineries, and some of the best roads in Virginia.  We have planned a diverse set of activities including historic tours, scenic drives, wine tasting, fine dining, and quaint towns.  We will stay at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains for two nights at the Boars Head Resort - the only AAA Four Diamond resort in Charlottesville. Enjoy a warm and intimate ambiance with southern hospitality, a luxury spa, scenic hikes, outdoor pools, multiple restaurants, and bars.  The Boars Head Resort combines the classic with the contemporary, the refined with the casual, and the tranquil with the dynamic. 

The discounted PCA rate deadline has past but you can still reserve a room starting at $295/night plus resort fee including afternoon tea, coffee, and pastries, use of fitness center, and onsite parking.  For more information, see here

We will meet Friday 8/16 in Haymarket, VA at 9:30 am sharp.  We will provide the rally point location to you following registration.

After a short discussion of logistics, we will head out as group on our first scenic drive.  Our first stop will be a delicious lunch in Orange, VA at Forked on Main - see here  Then after a short 10 minute ride, we will arrive at Montpelier – home of our 4th President – James Madison.  We will be guided through a one-hour tour that takes us through James Madison’s personal and professional life. You will learn how he lived and entertained with his wife Dolley, how he came to be known as the "Father of the Constitution," his role in creating the Bill of Rights, and his worst regret - Slavery.


After the tour, we will head to the Boars Head Resort to check-in and relax for a few hours before our 7PM dinner at the wonderful Ivy Inn,   We have arranged a private three-course dinner on their outdoor, covered patio.  The menu features a sampling of appetizers, choice of main course (e.g. crab cakes, halibut, beef tenderloin, chicken, and Ravioli) and a desert selection.

On Saturday, we will leave at 10 am and tour the beautiful country roads on the Piedmont Region, through the back roads of Albemarle and Nelson counties up to the 2800’ summit of Wintergreen Resort  for lunch and sightseeing.  Along the way we will stop at a local winery, Veritas Vineyards and then along the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Following lunch we will have a brief stop at a new craft brewery called Brewing Tree which offers both an intimate experience and a big parking lot for our Porsches.
