Wilder at Windy Hill

Perched quietly along the Clinch River in the Virginia mountains once sat the Wilder Coal Camp, the birthplace and home of our farm founder “Big George.” Drawing its name and inspiration from this camp, our on-property restaurant pays homage to those who came before us: a vibrant people from a variety of cultures. Their ingenuity drives us to adopt a seasonal approach to dining and creatively utilize every part of an ingredient. We are proud to maintain a responsible, sustainable dining program.

Our Garden

At Wilder, we make it a priority to source our ingredients in a responsible and sustainable manner, by utilizing our garden and local farmers as much as possible. By doing this, we ensure that the food we serve is always fresh and of the highest quality.

Meet the Chef

As an East Tennessee native, Executive Chef Ben Warwick relishes the opportunity to highlight this region’s unique food culture. Ben’s seasonal, farm-to-table menu will nourish, interest, and educate guests, leaving them with a memorable dining experience.

Wine Club
