Here is your chance to experience Hamiltons’ like you never have before, while helping to feed the area’s hungry: The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions. Along with all of the other restaurants in The Charlottesville 29, Hamiltons’ has created a once-in-a-lifetime experience for whoever pledges the highest donation to The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. Thanks to the generosity of Hamiltons’, Gearharts Fine Chocolates, and Virginia Distillery Co., the entire winning bid goes directly to the food bank. And, thanks to the efficiency of the food bank, each dollar donated creates four meals for the area’s hungry.

The Hamiltons’ signature experience for The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions:

An Evening of Wine, Chocolate & Whiskey 

The auction winner and nine guests will begin their evening at Gearharts’ Fine Chocolates, the chocolatier founded by Hamiltons’ alumnus Tim Gearhart. There, Gearhart himself will treat the group to a tour and a truffle rolling demonstration, where the group can try their hand at making truffles, while enjoying chocolates paired with whiskey and cocktails by Virginia Distillery Co.

Next, the group will amble over to Hamiltons’ for an evening in their private room. Hamiltons’ Chef and Wine Director will personally curate an over-the-top six course dinner paired with some of the Wine Director’s most favorite wines. At the end of the evening, the auction winner will take home a whiskey care package, with two logo’d glencairns and a bottle of Port Cask Finished Virginia-Highland Whisky, winner of Best American Malt at the World Whiskies Awards.

It’s the ultimate Hamiltons’ dining experience: An Evening of Wine, Chocolate & Whiskey.

Note: The auction winner will schedule their experience on a date that is mutually convenient for Hamiltons’, Gearharts, and The Virginia Distillery Co.
