Owner description: In 1774, Thomas Jefferson, one of America's first wine connoisseurs, convinced Italian Philip Mazzei to establish a vineyard on our property. With the financial support of Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Thomas Adams and other prominent colonists, the Virginia Wine Company was founded on present day Jefferson Vineyards. Today Jefferson Vineyards is a boutique, family owned winery. We have been creating nationally recognized, quality Virginia wines from classic varietals for over thirty five years, and are considered a pioneer of the Virginia wine industry. We are located between Monticello (home of Thomas Jefferson) and Ash Lawn (home of James Monroe). We open daily for tastings, from 11AM - 6PM. Tastings are $10 and include a souvenir wine glass. We offer mostly dry wines. Tours are not currently offered. We look forward to your visit.

My wife and I stopped in Jefferson which we had visited before but this trip was made by Dan the man, our pourer. He was so enjoyable and engaging, we laughed a lot.

We squeezed in a stop here and were super glad we did. The wines were excellent (especially compared to another nearby winery we had visited). The glass is plain, but it is a nice glass. Tasting is $10, which is a bit high, but you do get to taste about 10 wines. The tasting area isn't huge, and it was crazy busy when we were there, but they did their best to accomodate everyone. I really wanted to tour this winery, but the tours are only offered at limited times during the day and we could not make those times work around our busy trip. Worth the stop, even if it is just for a tasting.

We joined about 20 or so guests at a wine tasting. The hosts were knowledgeable and and wines were good. What's not to like.

The tasting was expensive ($10) and the free wine glasses were NOT the ones with the winery logo but just plain. I felt gypped! More importantly, the wine was not very good - each one had promise that wasn't fulfilled - not robust enough or deep enough or flavorful enough. Very disappointing.

Did a wine tasting and thought the wines were good. Very neat place, a must do for tastings. We enjoyed the tasting, bought a couple of wines to take home. You will enjoy.
