Shenandoah B & B: Monticello Wine Trail
Why You’ll Enjoy The Monticello Wine Trail
If you’re a wine lover and you have the great fortune of visiting the Charlottesville area, you’ll love the Monticello Wine Trail.
All of the 30 plus vineyards in the area were inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s vision. Jefferson dreamed of local vineyards that produced wine rivaling the best of Old World wines.
Although the former president would not live to see it in his lifetime, Virginia has earned the reputation as a wine destination.
Today, all of the members of the Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA) on the Monticello Wine Trail consistently maintain high rankings. Those rankings include state, national and international wine competitions.
Now you, too, can enjoy the fruition of Jefferson’s vision. Come and see the birthplace of American wine. Surround yourself with pastoral countryside and lush vineyard views, with the Blue Ridge Mountains as your backdrop. Take a step back and imagine Jefferson himself envisioning what we now enjoy.
Just make sure you bring friends or family with you. The more the merrier! The Monticello Trail is an experience to be shared. This is the time to sample many excellent wines together. It’s a wonderful way to spend a day.
