This winery falsely capitalizes on the great name of Thomas Jefferson! Yes, these vineyards are on land once part of Monticello and where Thomas Jefferson once planted grape vines. BUT...the people who started this vineyard/winery BOUGHT the rights to use his name! THERE IS NO OTHER CONNECTION TO THOMAS JEFFERSON!
The wines are very average...they charge one of the highest prices for a tasting, $10/person, and the tasting experience is very disorganized. We got the sense that the people in the Tasting Room were tired of tourists and just wanted to sell wine. Some were rude. With all the very good wineries in Virginia don't waste your money, time or tasting pleasure at this rip-off.
