Welcome to the Scenic, Historic, and Recreational Heart of Central Virginia

Wintergreen is a special place. People have chosen our area for hundreds of years—you can too. Here, in the scenic Rockfish Valley and nearby communities, you can enjoy an exceptionally wide range of activities in addition to the extensive collection at the Wintergreen Resort. We have been here since the early 1970’s. Let us be your tour guides! Sip chardonnay or merlot at area wineries. Visit the 200-year-old Oak Ridge Estate for a horse race or fox hunting. Tour the presidential homes of Thomas Jefferson at Monticello and James Monroe at Ash Lawn-Highland – or travel through the pages of history at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library & Museum. Journey back in time at the Frontier Culture Museum, or explore Poplar Forest, Thomas Jefferson’s octagonal house. Enjoy fine dining or savor a casual meal under the trees with friends. Here are a few suggestions. For a more complete discussion, visit About Nelson County, or let our local experts answer your questions.
