About the restaurant
The elegant balance we value in wine, the quality of celebration inherent in its welcome, inspire palate harmonies that are Virginian in resources and Northern Italian in perspective, in country dining of vivacity and refinement. Here the estate of wine is inhabited at its most seamless and complete, sustained behind the scenes by the rarest collaboration of colleagues gifted in cuisine, viticulture, horticulture and service. Luxury on-site accommodations available at our 1804 Inn and Cottages. For additional information, please visit our website www.bbvwine.com.

Five star dining In Charlottesville just without the Michelin or Forbes rating. Excellent meal, wine and service. Be prepared to pay the price. It’s worth it for very special occasions, foodies, and people who enjoy first class dining venues.

We have been dining at Duner's for over 30 years. Have always had a great meal and experience. Unfortunately, last night, one in our party ordered steak frites, cooked medium. The steak was tough and bleeding rare. Such a disappointment, but we've had thousands of good meals, so everyone has a bad night every now and then. We will still go back, but will not order that steak! The diner ate two bites and gave up.

This is by far the best restaurant in Charlottesville. The chef is very creative and the food is beautifully prepared. Staff are very professional and knowledgeable. Fun atmosphere…not pretentious, but cozy and intimate. We recently dined here and it was a pre-fix menu because of UVA grad weekend. Not my favorite format in general but “wow” was it incredible! Multiple choices for appetizer, dinner and dessert. So, they even did that to perfection! This is the type of restaurant where you want to share your meal with everyone at the table. True great dining experience.
