December 2023 Issue

Catch the holiday spirit with our December issue, where we get up close and personal with the horses, hounds, and huntsman in Middleburg. The festive spirit continues with our Top 10 holiday events around the Commonwealth, plus you’ll get the backstory on wreaths—hint: you can thank Colonial Williamsburg for this holiday tradition.

The holiday mood continues with a gracious handful of mouthwatering recipes, just in time for Thanksgiving—all courtesy of some of the best chefs in the state. Plus, Mockingbird in Charlottesville and Chef Melissa Close-Hart get raves. Midlothian’s 21 Spoons was recently touted by Southern Living as one of the best restaurants in the south, and we share Chef Ann Butler’s recipes to explain why.

Read about how Thomas Woltz and his visionary team at Nelson Byrd Woltz approach landscape architecture. And, our mesmerizing feature about glass art will have you hooked on this fascinating medium. Our special retirement section provides engaging and practical information.

You won’t want to miss our 12th annual Made in Virginia Awards. We were wowed with what we received this year, so choosing the winners was a tall task. Get inspired with all 30 of them—from pierogies to perfume, bags to bourbon. There’s so much more to explore in our pages, so subscribe now!
