The Piedmont Virginian is a richly produced bi-monthly journal of information and appreciation of nature, place, people, and ways of life.
We are inspired, and aim to inspire others, by giving voice to this special—even magical—place that is the northern Piedmont region of Virginia. Boasting both a rich history as well as today’s cultural diversity, the Piedmont’s storied past and vast beauty are celebrated by the artists, restaurants, winemakers and others that occupy this amazing region—a place appreciated and celebrated by those who live here and those who visit. It is the real life. It is the good life. And it is what we, at The Piedmont Virginian, are all about.
Our team and staff of writers are passionate about our mission, and strive to illuminate, excite, and encourage our readers to experience the Piedmont’s businesses and lifestyles like never before.
The magazine’s editorial focus therefore promotes:
The Sporting Life
Food & Drink
Travel & Adventure
Wildlife & Nature
Artisans, Music, & Entertainment
Events & Happenings
The Piedmont Virginian is designed for readers and businesses sharing these goals. Affinities, not simply geography, create the Piedmont’s unique regional identity.
