Create an itinerary including Jefferson Vineyards
In 1774, Thomas Jefferson, America's first wine connoisseur, convinced Italian viticulturist Philip Mazzei to establish a vineyard on our property. With the financial support of George Washington and other prominent colonists, Virginia's first wine company was founded on our estate.

Thirty seven years ago we became a pioneer of the modern Virginia wine industry. Our award-winning wines range from delicate and refreshing, to elegant, full-bodied and rich.

Our property is located between Monticello and James Monroe's Highland and is only 10 minutes from Charlottesville.

We look forward to your visit.

  • Visited here for an hour or two before a wedding we attended in Charlottesville and it was great! The wine was fantastic and the view from our outside table was so beautiful! We would visit again when we are in the area!
  • Nice vineyard with a good view. Very friendly staff. They helped us pick out our drinks. With their help we chose the “do it yourself” wine tasting. Wine was good but the information given with the wine could have been a more detailed.
