The tasting is a bit pricey but you get to keep the glasses which are quite nice. You'll love this wine and can just picture Thomas Jefferson himself wandering amongst the grape vines.

I was very excited to see this vineyard as it was called the Jefferson vineyard. The young lady that helped us was very nice and the wines were good. We had a good experience and would return again if in the area. The outside was pretty but wasn't what I had expected. If in the area stop by.

I had been to the winery several times and bought many bottles of wine. I just went again in August 2014 and learned how little they thought of their customers. I was hoping to purchase a specific wine and was told that the were out of it but, the sales person let me know she had 5 botttles at home... More

Jefferson Vineyards was a find for my husband and myself many years ago. Now, we go there every time we visit Charlottesville! Even when we want to branch out and try new vineyards, we find ourselves returning. The wine is always excellent, service is wonderful -- the employees doing the tasting pours always know a lot about both the wines... More

We have had their chardonnay a couple of time at other places before we finally got a chance come visit the vineyard. The staff was very friendly and made good suggestions of what we might like based on what we said we did like. They have a quaint tasting room with large, ample grounds for your family and pets. We... More

Stopped here on a weekend wine tour and enjoyed tasting the grapes of the region. The Rose was our favorite. I would like to have tasted more of the top reds which were not on the tasting. Beautiful mountain views abound around the winery . A great way to wile away the day.

We love this winery! Friendly, knowledgeable employees, great dry wines, and beautiful vistas make it a perfect place to spend some time. There are several outdoor seating areas that are shaded. You taste ten wines for $10. When we first visited, you got to keep the Riedel glass. You now get a cheaper (but etched) glass. It is near Monticello... More

This winery is very close to Monticello, so you can visit there after you go to Jefferson's mountaintop home. All wines were well made and the staff was very knowlegeable and pleasant.

We stopped late in the day on a late June Wednesday after stops at Trump and Blenheim. We would have missed Jefferson if the tasting guide at Blenheim had not suggested we stop on our way back to Charlottesville. We were very fortunate to meet Gary in the tasting room. We have NEVER had a more enthusiastic and knowledgeable tasting... More
