Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards Policy

Weekend Visits

Due to Saturday demand for the Tasting Room, we cannot accommodate parties of over ten guests for tastings or seating.

- We are not able to reserve bars or tables for guests.

- Parties of eight to ten may have to split up for tastings.

- Contact us via email at reservations@pippinhillfarm.com or call (434) 202-8063 to inform us of any groups of ten or under that you will be bringing to our Tasting Room.

Capacity

On most Saturdays we end up having to call capacity and temporarily close entry to the Tasting Room.  This is either because there is no space for more guests or the parking lot is full.  Please call us ahead of time if you're planning to visit and should we be at capacity, we will let the group in.  Any parties of 11 or more guests will be turned away at the gate.

Additional Info about Wine + Food Pairings on Saturdays

We strongly suggest that larger groups of 8 to 10 arrive before 12 pm and leave no later than 1 pm.  In general we see our rush around 1 pm and this can make it difficult to serve larger parties.

If your group would like to order food in addition to tastings, we cannot guarantee that a table will be available upon arrival.  We highly recommend that parties interested in getting food arrive at 11 am; after this time we generally see a wait of 1.5 hours to get seated.

Closing Times

On Saturdays we generally close at 4:30 pm for a wedding.  As there are often Private Events and weddings that don't occur on Saturdays, we encourage you or your client to contact us for closing times on a specific date.

Our kitchen closes at 3:45 pm on Saturdays.  We have a full menu available until 3 pm and serve small plates until the kitchen closes.  Guests that arrive after 2 pm may not be seated in time to order from our menu as we usually have a long wait in the afternoons.

Weekday Visits

We encourage groups to visit during the week if possible as we see the most volume on Saturdays.  Please let us know if you have a group coming during the week so we can staff appropriately.

Holiday Weekends

Please keep in mind that our Tasting Room is especially busy on Holiday Weekends, on both Saturday and Sunday. 

Vehicle Parking + Drop Off

Due to Bundoran Farm policy, we now have a designated drop off area for transportation companies.  This is an effort to keep large vehicles hidden from our neighbors' view.

Attached is a map showing where to stop and drop off/pick up guests.  There are signs and a walkway in place to make this route easier for guests.  When you drive in you may check in with one of our parking attendants who can guide you to the new drop off location.

Again, thank you for consideration and your business! Please don't hesitate to reach out to me personally with any questions or concerns. We look forward to welcoming you and your guests at Pippin Hill!
