need rec's for wineries in central Virginia, dinner/drinks in Charlottesville

hey all --- any recommendations would be greatly appreciated - trying to plan a suprise getaway for my gal...

looking to take a day trip and head from chapel hill, nc to charlottesville, va and check out some wineries along the way. just an idea to get outta town. there's a bunch of wineries in the middle of the state, all easily accessible for us as we cruise around...check out this map (

can anyone recommend any of these wineries to go for some tastings? i suppose a scenic destination would be nice, but not necessary if the wine is good! we'll probably bring our own picnic with us for lunch. like to hit maybe 3 or 4 of the wineries as we make our way to charlottesville for dinner and to crash for the night.

and can anybody recommend some restaurants in charlottesville? we'll eat any type of cuisine, but the lady is a psedoveggie (she'll eat the seafood, thank god!). don't want to spend a ton of money, but something creative with nice ingredients would be sweet. or something ethnic that shouldn't be missed in charlottesville would also suffice.

and sorry to drag this on, but a bar recommendation as well....we're in our late 20's, like some more chill places that aren't pretentious and play good music (some rootsy music could be nice). and that is all, thanks in advance...
