greenwood gourmet grocery (of whose praises we have already sung), has a new website.


we love this place!

here’s their blub:

Local garden, meat and dairy products persist as the core of the business. The bounty from area farmers is available throughout the summer, and in autumn the spacious front porch is an apple lover and pumpkin fancier’s dream. Wines from two dozen of Albemarle County’s finest vineyards are on offer, and David and Nina have built a far-ranging collection of west coast and international wines along with a beer section so ambitious and exotic (400 brands) as to be unrivaled across the state.

The store boasts a full-service espresso bar and stocks a gaudy array of cheeses, cured meats, fish and poultry, and an assortment of cooked foods and sandwiches prepared fresh daily in its kitchen. A spot of gourmet heaven in an otherwise rural and scantly served run of country, Greenwood Gourmet Grocery is the fruit stand re-imagined. Stop in and see for yourself. We’re hardly a minute west of Interstate 64 at exit 107, Greenwood.

and, best of all – you can now order some things online.  so, if the jaunt over to crozet from the ‘burg seems too daunting, just check out the website:

For those who can’t make it out to Greenwood, we’ve created this new website. We’re starting off small with this first incarnation of our virtual store. For now, you can buy Virginia wine, gift baskets and some of our favorite goodies. When we’ve made sure we can provide the same level of customer service through our website as we do in our store, we’ll begin to expand the items we sell online.

although, we still suggest that you head to downtown wine and gourmet for your virginia wine needs…

the folks at greenwood have gone all out.  from not having any website or online presence at all, to a website, virtual market, and a cute blog.

check em’ out, y’all.
