Frequently asked questions.
What is C'ville Picnic?
C'ville Picnic is a full-service luxury picnic, tablescape and event styling company based in Charlottesville, Virginia. We host events from 2-50 people in the Central Virginia area. Pick from our partnered winery locations, your private home or custom locations.
How far in advance should I book?
We do get fully booked especially on the weekends in the Spring and Fall, so the sooner you book the better. We need at least 48-72 hours notice in order book a picnic with us depending on your groups size.
Do you allow pets?
We love pets and a lot of the wineries are pet-friendly but out of respect to those with allergies, please leave them at home.
What if the weather is bad?
We do have a pop-up tent for mild weather conditions but if the weather is bad we can either move the picnic to an indoor location, if you are local or staying at an AirBnB, or reschedule. Occasionally high winds can impact what we can set-up and may still need to move indoors. Weather changes need to be made at least 48 hours in advance.
What are the food options?
Depending on the location, some wineries provide a full food menu and for those that do not, we offer a complimentary charcuterie board and have partnered with some great vendors to be able to offer you sandwiches, wraps, salads, bowls and desserts. No outside food or alcohol allowed! Please reach out to discuss options.
What's your cancellation policy?
For weather-related and COVID-related cancellations we do our best to reschedule or refund your reservation. Picnics must be cancelled no later than 2 weeks in advance for a partial refund, cancellations made after 2 weeks but before 1 week in advance will receive a 50% refund, anything after this window will be charged the full amount.
Can you recommend transportation, tour info, lodging and additional things to do in the area?
Absolutely, especially for bachelorette and birthday parties. If wineries aren't your jam, we know of a ton of unique experiences and locations we can partner with. Please email us.
